It is a shame that Andrea's politics will blind some to the very real cultural degradation she addresses in this book. Men and women of all political stripes struggle to navigate their relationships with colleagues, friends and potential partners within the context of the combined cultural and technological upheaval of the last 25 years. Advances in technology and the misappropriation of the victories of feminism have come together in a way that diminishes intimacy and respect in our romantic relationships and pits women against each other in the workplace. Women (and pre-teens) are expected to be selfie-ready at all times while pursuing STEM degrees. We snipe at each other for making the very choices our mothers and grandmothers fought so hard to give us and too often shut the door on the advancement of others due to our own insecurities. Andrea holds up the mirror and we may not like what we see, but we ignore it at our peril.

This is part memoir, part advice column, and part social criticism. I feel like a better person after reading this book and I know I'll be a better woman for it. I laughed, I cried, I cringed when some parts hit too close to home.
This is written simply, with wit and with kindness.
I will recommend this book to the young women I teach with the hope they take away some crucial advice. Be tough, be nice, don't let people walk all over you, but don't be cruel. Don't settle!! Have high standards for yourself and others.
Thank you, Andrea for a great read!!!

Read this book, I discovered Tied Up in Knots by accident and I am glad I did. I started to read a few pages before I knew it I was hooked for so many different reasons this book was honest, compassionate, smart, witty..... more importantly it was educational. It gave me a new perspective on the ever going battle of the sexes. If both men and women want to have a better understanding and respect for one another and want to grow together read this book. No matter what your motive is for reading this book you will not be disapointed at all. Great job Andrea.

I was very excited to get this book (I actually got the audible version). I was so excited, I wrote to the publishing company last month to ask about getting an advanced copy (they never responded).
I'm very torn as to how many stars to leave. Some parts I really liked, some parts, not so much.
I loved Dana Perino's book.
I hated Gretchen Carlson's.
I love that Andrea is a strong woman and does not follow the straight line of the party.
What I didn't like about the book:
The only thing I learned about was Tinder. I've heard about it, though had no idea it was so...caveman brain. Horrible!
Andrea throws a-lot of shade at women she has worked with. However, she doesn't name them (except for Mika Brez.). Listen, I firmly believe that if someone has done you wrong, you should absolutely call them out. It will make people think twice about the way they treat people. If we hold our tongues, remain silent, there is little chance the person has reasons to change.
I was disappointed she didn't name the people she had problems with. I understand why, but...here's the rub: Andrea touts being tough, strong,and opinionated, but then doesn't name names.
I wish she had told us more about her journey in life. I would have loved to hear more of her life growing up/college/etc.
She refers to the Bible at times. And yet, she's very honest in that she, like many women, have sex outside marriage.
Here is my problem: This book is all about honoring tradition and, as women, respecting ourselves. I don't think Andrea realizes quite yet that she is saying one thing, but doing another. She is trying to straddle both worlds, and this is what causes conflict in our personal life.
She really doesn't say anything new or life changing.

First, Andrea is an excellent writer. Her humor and knowledge about modern America makes it an easy and informative read. Being a senior citizen, I found her ideas surprisingly close to mine.and was as well pleased with her book as I was when she was on Fox. I want to say, shame on Fox for losing her. She discusses Facebook and how it is a constant miscommunication. I see that with my loved ones, so I choose not to be on it. She also states that people are losing their moral compass and boundries and are not considering consequenses. She asks the question, why do we want to be so much like men when we have so many gifts of our own? She stress the need to respect each other, whether we are men or women. I love the line , "Men are not mind readers, our thought processes are completely alien to them" After 50 some years, I am sure my husband would agree! I also agree that American men have been wimped....we have been in many cases, such as the media, very disrespectful of them. She stresses the importance of respect for all of us....men, women, children, all colors and all ages.

Interesting take on modern culture by a person born the generation after the slide began (my opinion on when it began). She understands the angst felt by many modern women and, because of her conservative roots has a good idea of the source. If she had the perspective of perhaps 20-25 more years of life, I think the source would be clearer to her. I enjoyed reading it, despite the fact that I am not her target demographic (I'm a 67 year old widower).
