But it may only work if you're a very girlie kind of gal: this is something I don't usually notice unless it's very pronounced as it is here. The author's idea of a good time is to dress up with hat and gloves and call all her best girlfriends and go out for a traditional English tea and then to get pampered at the neighborhood spa. I myself would find that a total ordeal!
So, even though she has some good insights, she and I don't have much in common, and this book struck me as more outer-oriented and materialistic than her Lit From Within book, which I would recommend, and which concentrates on inner peace.
First chapter that caught my interest is titled Acquire Discretion, which is right on target and in my opinion should be required reading for most Americans who in an age of blogs and tell all television might do well to acquire an art the Europeans know and practice well. As the author notes beginning on page 33 'Discretion is the art of restraint. People who have it do fewer foolish things, when they do behave foolishly, they don't plaster the news on a billboard. .... When a woman has discretion, her selfhood is marked by clear boundaries that ask for and almost always get respect'.
Her chapter on Watch Your Words is something that some of us know and practice and should be required reading for anyone who speaks without reallly thinking first. It might well 'cure' your problem if you are apt to gossip, or even say things that are deemed negative about what you can do vs what you do not want to do.
Ask for What You Want continues along the same lines and will be helpful for those who beat around the bush or play word games. If someone asks you a question don't spend ten minutes talking around the bush but spend one minute getting to the point. If someone asks you how they can help, speak up and be specific!
Another great chapter of hers is titled Be Specific.Read more ›
Since then, I picked up a copy of "Younger by the Day," which I just began and am loving it. It is especially hitting home for me, since I just turned 50 when I began reading it. Eventually I would love to have all of her books stacked in a pile by my bed. They are rejuvenating for the mind and spirit, and they make me feel good about myself. I would also recommend visiting her website at [...]
For example, one discusses coexisting gracefully with the unresolved. One titled "Stand on Ceremony" talks about elevating activities to a ceremonial level to enrich your daily routine.
Another seems mundane, "Make the Bed," but she writes about the standard that sets for your day and the reader sees how a small action makes a difference in life. The examples she gives are very applicable to ordinary working people.
What a great book! I'm anxious to sample her other titles also.
