Run, don't walk, to the bookstore and buy this book! It will not only make you THINK, but you'll feel smarter doing it.
Since I have owned my own business over the past 12 years in a male dominated industry and managed to survive the recent economic breakdown, I look forward to coming home after 12 hr days and dumbing down in front of the TV. After reading this book in one sitting (couldn't put it down) I have come to realize (along with Lisa's help) that I can zone out - no problem - but does it have to be such mindless crap? Why can't I watch a comedy, get lost in a great read or just sit outside and enjoy the weather without any phones? Why wouldn I not want to set a better example for my 20 yr old daughter that you can turn it off without reading "People" magazine or watching "Judge Judy"?
When 25% of "young" American women would rather win America's Next Top Model than the Nobel Peace Prize, we really have a problem. When T.V. shows like "Pregant at 16" are top hits, then it's time to face the facts and take a stand. Thank you Lisa for bringing something so obvious to our over extended and exhausted attention spans.
I wrote down every book she has in her recommended section. Monday morning I will try to find a mentoring program for young women so I can help, today I posted on my facebook page a call to action from all my women friends and family and tonight I downloaded the "New York Times" newspaper on my kindle. I will no longer act stupid just because I am tired. I will feed my brain along with my soul and take small steps to make this world a better place for women and girls everywhere.
Oh by the way, those last 2 reviews that said how disappointing this book was - really need to read it again! Obviously you missed something so profound, alarming and enlighting that I just feel sorry for you and can only hope that a second read will help you see what life changing information you were holding in your hands.
Thanks Lisa, we needed this!
I have already started implementing Lisa's prescriptions for positive change. I can also proudly pat myself on the back for things I was already doing. I want to buy this book as required reading for every woman I know and everyone with a daughter.
Lisa's fun, in-your-face style make even the potentially heavy sections about such things as sex slavery and climate change very readable. I put this book aside only to pick up and read other irresistible books Lisa mentions. I didn't even wait until her recommended reading appendix!
