All in Her Head Paperback – April 21, 2011
This is a really great, interesting book and sure makes you think. You think this might be another weight-problem book & the girl needs to just accept her inner beauty...but it goes so much farther than that; the journey it takes Bridget on is quite impressive. It's a short quick read, but fulfilling and very enjoyable! -Hanging off the Wire

The story sets off with Bridget, the heroine in the adventure, yelling at some DMV worker, who she feels like putting the full wrath on because, well, he's just in her way. A prototypical Starbuck's drinker who thinks a DMV worker is just a speed bump in her day. Think of any executive type character in any romantic comedy that is a hard charger(insert Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston, Anne Hathaway, as you deem fit) and you will get a sense that you're on the stereotypical journey to self discovery, avenging past demons and pushing forth to the finale of finding a man (or woman) that understands her and so on and so forth. WELL, that changes about 20 pages in or so when Bridget finds herself in more of a mental dream state, rather than a bad film script.
Events happen and Bridget finds herself being very introspective in terms of thoughts/actions/feelings through various interactions with her spiritual guide, aka yoga instructor Rosalina, guiding her through her past memories, seeking to kill various crushing past lives with an emotional sniper rifle. I can't give it all away, but the story is "All In Her Head" just like Dorothy in the Ruby Reds. It is entertaining, but in being a dude, I really enjoyed seeing the thought patterns of a modern woman down on paper. Us dudes are visual in nature and don't get the subtle nuances of the fragility of the female mind. Michelle helps me see how decisions are made, what thoughts and ideals are important and how to walk around the eggshells a woman has as she is learning to love herself. We can be there to be part of the journey, but we certainly are not the tour guide. You'll need a yoga instructor for that!
All in all, a good read. I dug it.
I got through half of the book, very entertained and delighted. The witty repartee and distinct voice felt as comfortable as a girls' night out: cajoling and consoling your best girlfriends over cocktails, regaling one another about relationships and disaster dates.
The next day, I read the second half. This is where the book "dives down the rabbit hole" to where the journey truly begins. I had no idea what a treat (and a treasure) the rest of the journey would be! The conversations and situations had me gasping, laughing, and arguing out loud.
It was the perfect book to cure my post-college job-search blues.
thanks Ms. Paisley!
