Two chapters that really resonated for me were TOSS OUT YOUR FIVE YEAR PLAN and HOW TO COME UP WITH A KILLER IDEA. Great sex advice as well as career tips, what more could a girl ask for?
There truly are a number of thought-provoking pearls of wisdom in this book beyond the naughtiness we've come to expect of Cosmo. More importantly, the book is fun and easy to read. And while you may learn a few things about setting his thighs on fire, don't be surprised if you learn other life lessons along the way.
There are endless magazines on the market about anything under the sun for women. You'll find all subjects from fitness, style, health, and hobbies but no magazine delivers the message of self confidence laced with sex appeal as much as Cosmopolitan. Kate White has put together this book of 86 lessons she's acquired in her years as Editor and Chief of Cosmopolitan that will make you think, experiment, nod in agreement, and laugh.
It was a good read that offers advice on sex, men, life, self-confidence, and work. It's somewhat of a mentor book that covers all those topics that you eventually end up asking your mentor with some sex advice that you'd normally ask your most experienced girlfriend about. Each topic is to the point and fairly short so you can read at your leisure with out having to get sucked into a plot you can't put down so this is a great book for reading while waiting in line or a few pages before bed. Most of the chapters are two pages with a few that need more pages to cover the topic but all fairly short.
I loved the different topics. My favorite was lesson forty-two: Guys Like Women Naked, Period. I got a chuckle out of quote in the book: "Want to know how to look hot naked? Answer: Take Your Clothes Off! Also there are a number of other great lessons in the book dealing with work and personal appearance that I really liked. Anyway it's worth a read even if the title kind of misrepresents the contents of the book.
Did Ms. White have one?
I grabbed the book from his clutch and zeroed in on tip #23: HOW TO HOOK A MAN FOREVER. Yep, that clever technique sounded good.... And tip #27: THINK WITH YOUR PANTIES. Sure, I could master that maneuver too.... And tip #62: THE MOST NEGLECTED MOAN ZONE ON A MAN'S BODY. Hey, this is fun -- and very, um, educational!
Was he panting yet?
By the time we got to tip #86: HOW TO BE GREAT IN BED, we were in bed. Not sleeping, by the way.
And I realized that my bookstore genius had given us both a gift -- for although this book's title implies that it's all about giving him pleasure, in truth it's really all about you, as a woman, and how to make yourself happier...not only in bed but also in life, pointing you toward making smart choices about your career, friendships, self-esteem and more.
The next morning, I picked up the book from the floor, where it was buried under a tangle of bed linens that we had flung around.Read more ›
