While I usually stick to fiction, I couldn't stop reading this book! Lisa Bloom writes to women, with pertinent observations and advice. I bought 4 copies of her book as Christmas presents for my 4 daughters and plan to have reading discussions with each of them, chapter by chapter. I can't wait to re-read this book with my daughters. I've recommended it to all my girl friends and highly recommend it to anyone.
A topical, timely, and highly provocative debut work of nonfiction by nationally recognized attorney and television legal analyst, Lisa Bloom
In Think, Lisa Bloom examines the stark paradoxes that American girls and women live today, including excelling in education but obsessing over celebrities and tabloid media, in outperforming male counterparts in employment yet spending more time and money on appearances.
Bloom wonders: How did we get from the Equal Pay Act and Title IX to celebutainment and Botox, and what can we do about it?
Bloom proffers the solution: one simple word, Think.
In this provocative, entertaining, and thoroughly researched book, Bloom illuminates specific steps for women to take to reclaim their brains, regain their focus, and take charge of their lives. Think is delivered in a no-nonsense, straight-talk manner that will make you laugh, question yourself, and start thinking again.
