A fun book. Wurtzel is a fun writer and I enjoy her books. ( )

This book has been a life saver in more ways than one. I've read it front to back back to front. And what's really ironic is that it wasn't even supposed to be on sale when I bought it. I bought it at Shakespeare and Co. in NYC six years ago. I had read Bitch in Praise of Difficult Women by Wurtzel and saw her on the cover giving me this sexy smile and I had to have it. It turns out this book was on sale in London and not to be sold in America. The American version is yellow and is called Radical Sanity: Common Sense Advice for Uncommon Women. (A much tamer Americanized title than The Bitch Rules). My advice is: read this book! Especially if you are single/recently heart broken. Whenever I was single I read this book with relish. Everything in it was so true. The best advice she could ever give is to grow your own garden and get to know yourself before you become a part of someone else. ( )
