I absolutely loved this book! Not only is it chock-full of useful tips to "fake it," but it's also hilarious. Jennifer Byrne is a very witty, funny writer. I laughed out loud reading this book on practically every page! When I ordered it, I was just looking for somthing that would help me make my hectic life a little less complicated, and it delivered! The tips in here are practical, useful, and the book was fun to read. I am buying a copy for all my girlfriends this Christmas!!!

There are some very good ideas in this book (e.g. shampooing just your bangs when you don't have time to shower! Smart!), but I'm personally not able to get over items such as p. 230 where the reader is needlessly subjected to the assumption that math is hard because she's a woman. Or that she should fake liking sports to please her man. Just know that's the mindset you're getting into with this book.

Format: Paperback
Fake It: More Than 100 Shortcuts Every Woman Needs To Know by Jennifer Byrne is a pithy compendium of, well, 100 shortcuts every woman should know. Aimed at the busy, the uninformed and sometimes arguably lazy gal, these tips and tricks are good to tuck away for later, and the book is a good reference to have on the shelf for when you just can't remember how to set the table for a dinner with the Prince of Wales, or, more to the point, how to cover that zit that suddenly appeared this morning.

The book occasionally reads like a collection of articles for Cosmo; however, on the other hand, there's been plenty of times that more information in one of those articles would be just the thing. Byrne accomplishes that here with good segues, practical application examples and clever (if sometimes risqué) humor.

This is probably a read more for the younger, twenty-something set, but I enjoyed it and absolutely picked up some good tips, tricks and shortcuts to make my world a little saner.

Not only hysterical, but really informative! I knew I was in for a treat after reading the witty introduction. Work, a husband, two kids and two dogs - I'm using this book as my first-stop resource for quick tips and shortcuts! I just used the author's advice for faking home-baked goods for school...it totally works! (And it took me only 10 minutes). The advice to "Say the Opposite" when dealing with your partner's family will come in handy for the holidays; oh, and the relationship section for singes was comical (yes, I read it!). Fantastic book and a must read - would be a great gift for the cool women in your life for the holidays!

Drooling in the dark?!! I laughed out loud reading every page of Jennifer's book. "Fake It" goes to the top of my list of funniest books ever read. Jennifer's waggish detailing of faking real stuff is serious--seriously priceless! (Well, not really I mean you DO have to BUY the book, but it's worth every knee-slapping penny!) This book had me giggling from the get go and outright cracking up all the way through. I highly recommend this hilarious read for anyone, women and men alike--it's critical hilarity we all need! And thanks to Jennifer for her advice about Uncle George!

What a great book - and a perfect holiday gift! It's loaded with tips for just about every situation we face as women, and you can tell the author did her research with all of the helpful links. Each section of the book is told with such a great sense of humor - it makes you feel as if a friend is helping you out, not a "know-it-all" who does everything perfectly. Shopping for my nieces and girlfriends just got a whole lot easier this Christmas!

So this book is full of tips, but it is written so hilariously that it just feels like a conversation with some of your girl friends. It makes me wish that I knew the author, Jennifer Byrne, because I am pretty sure she is a crack up! I got this as a gift, and I know that I will be giving it to a few of my favorite people soon. It is a really enjoyable read that humorously assures you that you are not alone in your plight to be perfect...

This book is my favorite new book! It's instant therapy after a bad day at work - I just pick any page and within seconds of reading I start chuckling, and eventually I'm laughing out loud - even slapping my knee with tears streaming down my face! And within minutes the worst of bad moods is gone. Now, that's a GREAT book! I can't wait for the next one this author writes, her comical view of the world is truly enlightening. :)
