“Janice really pulled together the best Hollywood tips and tricks for all of us moms to laugh at and learn from. Whether you have one child or four, there is definitely something for you in here!” —Heidi Klum
“Min’s familiar tone makes the book read like a girlfriends’ chat after mommy and me class. She shares personal stories about her pregnancy, postpartum and parenting issues — from muffin tops to working-mother guilt — with refreshing honesty, candor and humor. It’s no surprise the book is reminiscent of a lifestyle magazine filled with stunning celebrity photos, but Min’s style is engaging and she provides useful advice for regular moms. “If it were your full time job to look ... glamorous — and you had all the money in the world — you could probably look like an A-lister too. But this is real life ... we have to start aiming for goals that are actually attainable,” she says.” —Associated Press
"[Janice] shares advice for looking glamorous after baby, along with plenty of self-deprecating humor, and tips from doctors and experts in beauty, fashion and fitness." —Time.com
"A clever, honest, and practical guide to motherhood. J.Lo, Gwyneth, and the rest enjoy the aid of trainers and makeup artists; Min has gathered advice from the experts and experiences of celeb-world (whether or not we believe Jessica Alba struggled with postbaby weight, it’s reassuring to read about it) for our benefit. The result: a trove of info ranging from nutrition tips to how to dress for every occasion. Min, a mother of three, makes clear that while we can’t all be Angelina Jolie, we’re all—silver-screen siren or suburban mom—united in our quest for nonugly diaper bags." —Elle Magazine
“[How to Look Hot in a Minivan] is filled with a lot of great tips…it’s a terrific book” —Kathy Lee and Hoda on The Today Show
“As a mother I was laughing through everything [in the book]!” —Kit Hoover, Access Hollywood
“A very funny and yet very frank take on what it means to become a mother…get the book!” —E! News
“[How to Look Hot in a Minivan] offers a much-needed sense of humor about what really happens post-bump.” —SELF magazine
"Filled with awesome tips (like how to have celebrity-worthy hair, even on school days), this book will become your new best friend." —mom.me
“She divulges the inside info, from the perspective of a less than perfect real mom of three. She’s a great writer and includes many personal stories of her own pregnancy and parenthood experiences that are extremely relatable– from the time someone asked when she was due weeks after the baby was born… to the guilt of working motherhood…The book offers valuable advice in a funny, easy way with a message of being good to yourself. It would make a great gift for new moms as it’s filled with stories that most people won’t tell you when you’re pregnant (stretch marks, hair loss, cellulite!) Somehow Min breaks it to them gently, with lots of pretty celebrity photos.” —Carpoolcandy.com
