“Think is a real eye-opener. Lisa Bloom brings her extraordinary passion, humor, and intelligence to the important subject of how women and girls can fight being drowned in a sea of pop culture, and lead lives that are fuller, richer, and more connected. Think educates, informs, and—thanks to Lisa’s wit and sense of humor—keeps us smiling along the way. Think is a must-read for all mothers and daughters.”
—Dr. Phil McGraw, Nationally syndicated television host and #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Lisa Bloom is a dynamo and her book is as smart, quick, and funny as she is. Think paints a clear picture of the power of tabloid culture, inspires personal change, and evokes the desire to make a difference. Best of all, Think provides a step-by-step guide on how to rescue ourselves from the belly of the beast. This book is a must-read for girls and women everywhere.”
—Rory Freedman, #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of Skinny Bitch
“Every woman in America needs to read Think. It made me think about how I can become more successful, influential, and compassionate. Lisa Bloom is a leader for our times. Listen to her.”
—Jane Velez-Mitchell, bestselling author and host of Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell on HLN
“Witty, insightful, and practical. Think brims with specific ideas to give women more time, happiness, and meaning in our lives. Even if it were not written by my daughter, I'd still recommend this life-changing book to everyone I know.”
—Gloria Allred, women's and victim’s rights attorney, partner Allred, Maroko & Goldberg
“Think reads like a conversation with that best friend we all need. Funny, wise, opinionated, Lisa Bloom covers everything from Angelina Jolie to precut veggies in this how-to, what-for, this-matters guide to a meaningful and honorable life.”
—Jeffrey Toobin, CNN Legal Analyst, New Yorker writer, and author of The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court
“Lisa Bloom is a woman of brilliance, boldness, and beauty. One of the smartest and most erudite people in the American popular culture, you debate her on TV at your own risk. In her new book, Lisa deals with one of our nation's most pressing subjects: the need for women to use, and be appreciated for, their minds. As the father of six daughters, I am immensely grateful to Lisa for this outstanding and riveting contribution.”
—Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, New York Times bestselling author of 10 Conversations You Need to Have with Your Children

First, some of the solutions were clever and very practical. "Cross-reading," that is, reading something you disagree with or is written from a viewpoint other than your own is terrific advice. I will try to pick up an occasional one of those. The book reads well, and I enjoyed her personal passages about her grandmother, mother and father. We'd all do well to think about the origins of our world view. Another major point we are in agreement over is that the media does not cover important issues adequately. The insipid and banal stories some mainstream news outlets serve up should make the editors blush.
The aspects I am not on board with follow: First, the breathless tone of some of the statements remind me of Wolf Blitzer jazzing you up with excitement with that piercing disaster-reporting tone. Usually after he has your ear, you realize he is talking about something quite mundane. Second, Bloom's statement about how only beautiful people get friends and get ahead in this society does not ring true to me. I just tossed the barely-used tube of lipstick I bought when I got married over thirty years ago. I don't wear makeup and am only dimly aware of current fashion. I have never lacked for friends or been passed over for a promotion. One should be clean and tidy, yes, but wear makeup and have plastic surgery? That is overstatement. Finally, I fail to see the harm in watching reality tv. It is not my cup of tea, but, like the weather, it gives afficionados something to discuss and therefore provides social lubrication.Read more ›
Then her solution -- READ -- which we do [I bought your book!]. And her solution if you don't have time to read: "don't do housework, cook simply, enforce bedtime..." Really!?! I spent $10 for this. I think the only person benefiting from this book is Ms. Bloom herself.
One of her rules is "if you find a book you don't like -- put it down!" That is exactly what I did. Also, I have never posted a review on Amazon and find myself doing so tonight to save all you other smart women and mothers from making the same mistake.
