The only small issue I have however are some of the sweeping generalizations Ms. Knobova makes about all men; she tends to put them all into this one category and that bothered me a bit (because I do have guy friends who in no way fit into these very specific archetypes she illustrates in her book).
Overall, a fabulous must-read for any woman (and a great guide for men on how NOT to behave if you're in a relationship).
"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
"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 about fifty short stories about beautiful, strong, intelligent, independent and sexy women. There's always the almost in all of our lives, but we grow as we mature and make decisions that are more suitable to our lives.
It's about accepting ourselves for who we are; inner and outer beauty. To accept our faults and embrace our strengths to lead a fulfilling and rewarding life. There are several stories, ok most of them, about men. How men come and go through our lives while we are chasing that perfect life we envision. Some are sad and some will have you laughing until you cry. There are some that will have you nodding your head in agreement, and others having you gasping in shock. I think my favorite story in the book though is about THE DOG. The man can't accept that the DOG is at home and thus, his domain and the man must come in second. The man is not number one and it really irritates him to no end. I laughed so hard I cried.
The stories reflect how some women adapt to the lifestyle of the man, and they are no happier for it. But once they accept themselves for the delicious girls they are, they can take control of their life and make changes that suit them; make society accept you for who you are and not who you think you need to be.
"Delicious girls don't cry. Ever. Because they know it's useless anyway." Direct quote from the beginning of the book that really has an impact. Women are doers, its a fact. This book is an inspiration to women; married or single. Entertaining, but nonetheless, various views of delicious girls that will inspire you.
