Forget the Ya-Ya Sisterhood

And move over Janet Evanovich, this is flat out the most hilarious book I have ever read or listened to. Not only is it funny, but the SPQ advice is right on the money - like "be particular" and "never wear panties to a party". I was constantly rewinding to listen to parts of it 2, sometimes 3 times. Since I listen while I drive, I'm sure there are drivers out there who think they've shared the road with a very strange person. I have recommended that friends put this one on the top of their lists.

Havent we heard it all before?

There are those for which this book is written, and even though they've had the same thing packaged in various ways a million times before, they will continue to love it. I am not one of these people.
Take Cosmo magazine, age its writers and target audience a few decades, add the typical southern female angle and put them in the era of Designing Women and you have this book.
Sometimes I wonder if women get silly for tips like always where cute panties at two ages, adolescence/early twenties when you read the Bag Girls Guides, and when you hit that certain age the women in this book decline to mention, of course because a lady doesn't.
Personally, this kind of shallow empowerment never appealed to me but it does have a market and can be entertaining if you're hearing it for the first time. I mean I dont object to the shallowness, we are are shallow at times and many women do feel empowered in cute panties and awesome shoes, and thats great, but I do object to the lack of any substance with the shallow quips. This is like the various trends that tell young girls that girl power is short skirts and flowers. This book is exactly how I thought beauty queens would age. Fried Green Tomatoes was better.
