No doubt, there's a built-in market for this unique self-help book by the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan, namely the millions of Cosmo readers who, if we're to believe White, are simply desperate to know everything from "How to Find the Time to Do the Things You Really, Really Want" to "The Most Neglected Moan Zone on a Man's Body." Much of what White has to offer, at least in the areas of career development, time management and even, to a degree, appearance, is good old-fashioned common sense. White also makes sure on nearly every page that readers will know how well connected she is, dishing on celebrities and other important types she's dazzled and been dazzled by. As to the title topic, White's advice ranges from sensible ("Guys have sex fears, too") to downright silly. In a chapter titled "9 Extra Little Orgasm Tricks," White advises readers to get a Brazilian wax. Her source for this tip? Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria, who "swore by it when we interviewed her." (June 14)

White, editor in chief of Cosmopolitan and author of the popular Bailey Weggins mystery series, turns here to the kind of sex-and-lifestyle advice that keeps single gals pulling Cosmo off the newsstand. Although hardly your typical Cosmo girl (she's married, lives in the suburbs, and was even baking a pie when her boss at Hearst called to offer her the job), White claims that, in the course of editing the magazine, she's learned plenty about the essence of the Cosmo world: getting it all, especially men and sex. Her chatty advice is mostly commonsensical (don't talk to men about Jen and Brad), but it's delivered with considerable style and wit--and without much psycho-sex-babble ("own your own hotness" aside). And, yes, there is plenty of sexy stuff (the 12 oral-sex tricks are as frank as any of Dr. Ruth's notoriously unbuttoned advice). White will be making the talk-show rounds to promote her book, and that exposure, combined with her place atop the Cosmo masthead, is sure to generate demand among the target audience. Ilene Cooper

There are endless magazines on the market about anything under the sun for women. You'll find all subjects from fitness, style, health, and hobbies but no magazine delivers the message of self confidence laced with sex appeal as much as Cosmopolitan. Kate White has put together this book of 86 lessons she's acquired in her years as Editor and Chief of Cosmopolitan that will make you think, experiment, nod in agreement, and laugh.
It was a good read that offers advice on sex, men, life, self-confidence, and work. It's somewhat of a mentor book that covers all those topics that you eventually end up asking your mentor with some sex advice that you'd normally ask your most experienced girlfriend about. Each topic is to the point and fairly short so you can read at your leisure with out having to get sucked into a plot you can't put down so this is a great book for reading while waiting in line or a few pages before bed. Most of the chapters are two pages with a few that need more pages to cover the topic but all fairly short.
I loved the different topics. My favorite was lesson forty-two: Guys Like Women Naked, Period. I got a chuckle out of quote in the book: "Want to know how to look hot naked? Answer: Take Your Clothes Off! Also there are a number of other great lessons in the book dealing with work and personal appearance that I really liked. Anyway it's worth a read even if the title kind of misrepresents the contents of the book.
I'm 20 and just yesterday decided that I need to re evaluate my life, my goals for school, my dreams, basically everything. And then today at my local used book store I found this book!
And I've already read half of it, because it's so easy to read! Like the other reviewer said, there isn't anything ground-breakingly new in it. There's just a lot of really useful information that we all know deep down inside but we really just need to be reminded of!
There's 86 mini-chapters of advice in total. She divides the book into "Starting Now", "Work", "Men and Love", "Sex", "Style" and "Life".
It's just a really great little book to highlight and underline in and to reference whenever you're feeling like you're not quite sure about yourself no matter which one of those above categories you feel that way about.
Great little Gem to have on your book shelf ;)
