Publisher's Summary

According to Lisa Bloom, the women and girls of today represent a stark paradox. While American women excel in education at every level, they likewise obsessively focus on celebrity media. While women outperform their male counterparts in employment in urban areas for the first time in history, they simultaneously spend countless hours staring in the mirror contemplating plastic surgery. Lisa Bloom fears that women are in danger of spiraling into a nation of dumbed-down, tabloid-media-obsessed, reality TV addicts. Too often, they outsource matters to "experts" and in doing so neglect to truly think for themselves. Lisa Bloom has the solution and it involves one simple word: Think.
In this provocative, entertaining, educational, and thoroughly researched book, Lisa outlines the ways that we as a society, and particularly women, have fallen off the intellectual path, and, very specifically, points to how damaging this has been to us on many levels. Lisa shows us the fallout - but she also provides the solutions for "Reclaiming the Brain God Gave You" and seizing back control of your mind and your life. Think is delivered in a no-nonsense manner that will make you laugh, make you question yourself, make you squirm, but, most important, make you start thinking again.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Think?

To learn more about what's going on in the world, not just what's light and fun in the news.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

Read the New York Times and other Pullitzer prize winning books. Although I'm not one who watches television or reads tabloids, I was touched by her description of the dichotomy between Angelina Jolie and the tabloid and "news" portrayal of this incredible woman.


Any additional comments?

But where is the PDF with her recipes?
