About the Author
Ronda Rich is the author of What Southern Women Know (That Every Woman Should) and a novel, The Town That Came A-Courtin'. She is an eleventh-generation Southerner who firmly believes that charm disarms. In her weekly syndicated newspaper column, "Dixie Divas," she writes humorously and poignantly about the South and its women. Ronda, who lives in Gainesville, Georgia, is a daily devotee of the fine art of flirtation.

Here's a perfect example of how appropriate it can be for an author to read her own work. Ronda Rich's Southern cadences guide women throughout the nation toward success--the Southern belle way. More or less, it's a playful study of the high art of eyelash batting, but this audiobook has some good points about how to maintain femininity and power in a masculine world. Charming is the word that best describes this production. Inevitably, you will find yourself intoxicated by Rich's delightful drawl--even if you don't agree with her thesis.

Other than portraying the stereotype of a Southern woman, the author offers suggestions and advice some of which is sound and some of which may be understandable from a woman's perspective, but not necessarily healthy. Just as women in general are known to be full of contraditions, so is the advice that runs through this book - some examples of using charm in many different situations are brilliant. On the other hand, you'll encounter a struggle to be proper and ethical, advice to think positively, believe in the good, and to look at situations in optimistic light mixed with hold on patiently to your grievances (2 - 5 years or more if need be) until the timing is perfect to dish out your revenge. (That's definitely not good for one's health.) Then in the next section, you'll find "let bygones be bygones".
And yes, there is an advice in the book to be used in negotiations. Since most of the books on negotiation out there are written by guys, here is how it works from Southern woman's perspective - together with the negotiation skills available through other books and sources, wear a short skirt [the shorter the skirt you wear, the better deal you can count on getting], use charm all the way, and let your opponent sizzle (for his own good) - very soon he won't know what hit him.
All in all, it is an entertaining book.
