Synopses & Reviews
“Funny, smart, and compulsively likeable, Anna David is this decades answer to Carrie Bradshaw. There wont be a single second you wont root for her as she bravely tries to answer the resonating question: how can I be my best self?”
—Allison Winn Scotch, New York Times
bestselling author of The Department of Lost and Found
The sex-and-relationship expert on G4s Attack of the Show, author of Party Girl and Bought, and the editor of Reality Matters, Anna David is smart, successful, and single. Falling for Me is Annas provocative, eye-opening, and inspiring chronicle of the year she changed her life by following the advice of Cosmopolitan Magazine guru Helen Gurley Brown in her classic Sex and the Single Girl. Annas story of “How I Hung Curtains, Learned to Cook, Traveled to Seville, and Fell in Love”—and her determination to either find “the one” or accept once and for all that its not in the cards—is touching and transformative, exhilarating and uplifting, and belongs on every bookshelf next to Eat, Pray, Love and The Happiness Project.
“A thoughtful chronicle with inspiring lessons in personal growth and building a life one loves from the inside out.” Publishers Weekly
“In this new form of reality lit, Anna David shows its never too late to come of age and sometimes it takes an unexpected fairy godmother- say Helen Gurley Brown-to get us there. Anna had me falling for her, myself, and this book with every brave and vulnerable page.” Jennifer Belle, New York Times bestselling author of High Maintenance and The Seven Year Bitch
“Anna Davids journey is ripe with wry observation of situations ranging from poignant to hilarious, ending with the ultimate message that we create our own happy endings. In short? I fell for Anna David, and you will, too.” Jen Lancaster, New York Times bestselling author of Bitter Is the New Black
“Because every girl can use a best-friend-in-a-book, and this one is a winner: funny, smart, and brutally honest.” Flavorwire.com
Like most women, whether theyve chosen the Fortune 500 career path or have had five kids by 35, Anna David wondered if shed made the right choices. Then she came upon the book Sex and the Single Girl by Helen Gurley Brown, Cosmopolitans fearless leader from the mid-sixties to the late nineties. Immediately connecting with Gurley Browns unique message of self-empowerment combined with femininity, Anna vowed to use Sex as a lesson plan, venturing out of her comfort zone in the hope of overcoming the fears and insecurities that had haunted her for years. Embarking on a journey both intensely personal and undeniably universal, she becomes adventurous and spontaneous—reviving her wardrobe and apartment, taking French lessons, dashing off to Seville, and whiling nights away with men she never would have considered before. In the process, she ends up meeting the person really worth changing for: herself.
