For that matter, I am sure we all know at least one woman in our life like that as well, one that has to make herself feel better by making us feel worse.

The book gives inspirational thoughts on why we, as woman, must stick up for ourselves and learn to love ourselves.

I LOVED "Tales for Delicious Girls" by Barbara Knobova. I plan on suggesting it as a book club read. The author does an amazing job creating this book. It is not a relationship advice book, well it kind of is, but the author relating her experiences with dating and relationships. We've all had bad dates, bad experiences and even ones that just make good stories. As you read through her novel, you will feel that you are sitting at a table, sipping coffee with your best friend sharing the weekend dating report. It was such a fun read. This book also makes the point that women must first be true to themselves. It is so easy to get down on ourselves after a bad dating experience. Knobova tells women not to change for a relationship, something many of us are guilty of. Thanks for the reminder Barbara! You make dating seem not so scary.

Tales for Delicious Girls by Barbora Knobova is a fantastic book for any woman. The book gives inspirational thoughts on why we, as woman, must stick up for ourselves and learn to love ourselves. Two of my favorite paragraphs in the book are:

"Nevertheless, this chameleon syndrome implying "I
will be what you want me to be" probably affects only
women. If you know a man who, because of "the love of
his life", gives up his job, his family, his fat cat whose
hairs you are allergic to, and his disgusting high school
sneakers that are "as good as new", introduce him to me.
Introduce him to me and I will have him submitted to a
thorough psychological examination as an absurd
natural phenomenon."

"And that's the point. Why do women trim their sails
while men remain in their comfort zone? Why do we
push ourselves to the limit, live on our nerves, give up
our soul, our personality, the little things we love? Why
do we pretend, fake, lie blatantly to ourselves and on top
of that manage to become convinced that it's making us
happy? Why do we rigorously get rid of everything that
makes us unique? What for?"

I know so many women that have done this and I am guilty of it as well! Thankfully I am with the best man for me who I adoringly love. I can truly be myself and my husband loves me unconditionally ---there is no better feeling in the world than that.

The book shows different and interesting short stories on men and women that you will find yourself identifying with. The 'stories' are mainly the authors situations that are extremely well-written and thought out to help give you advice and show you that you need to love yourself.

I highly recommend this book to ALL women! The book will help you believe in yourself, all of your dreams and to love yourself---deliciously.

Tales for Delicious Girls is a compilation of short essays written by Barbora Knobova meant to empower women of all ages. Ms. Knobova shares her personal experiences on her road to being her own best friend. These stories range from laugh out loud funny to introspective and insightful. The one thing all the stories have in common is the message to never settle and never compromise; you deserve the best life has to offer.

I could see so much of myself in Delicious Girls. What woman hasn't met a man who tries to take control, who can't commit, who is jealous of her success, who refuses to take responsibility, a man exactly like JB? For that matter, I am sure we all know at least one woman in our life like that as well, one that has to make herself feel better by making us feel worse.

Through the telling of her tales, Ms. Knobova sets out to show all women that it doesn't have to be this way. We don't have to give others power over ourselves. More importantly, we shouldn't give others power over us. We all deserve to be in relationships, both romances and friendships, that are based on mutual appreciation and respect and we should settle for nothing less. We should picture our real selves and not base our worth on what others think.

Tales for Delicious Girls is a must read for every woman; mother, daughter, sister, friend. Let's all join together in the sisterhood of Delicious Girls.

Well, if you wanted to know the 5 "W's" in dating I would get his book written by Barbora Knobova. In "Tales for Delicious Girls" not only has she done it all she tells you all about it. Some of the stories are laughable, cry-able, and downright curable, but, it still doesn't keep you sworn off men completely.

Don't let Ms. Barbara Knobova scare you off because you can still believe that old comment your momma told you all through school ... "There's someone out there for you and you'll know it when you meet him". So she's had some oranges that turned into lemons. With each person she grew and was able to see that within herself and that is a positive thing.

I honestly believe that by writing this book, Ms. Knobova re-confirmed finding herself, and realized she wasn't so bad and it's not all her or him and for that "Bravo". It's a good book to pass along. There are lessons here to be learned and to realize that it's not always the women who try to change the man. Relationships are work good or bad and sometimes it takes longer for the bad ones to show their face or the good ones to be enjoyed. Either way both parties must remain true to themselves. Great book!
