Bitch? Please! by Megan Munroe

Bitch? Please!
By Megan Munroe

From Megan Munroe's homepage:

"Actress, model, singer-songwriter and nice girl advocate Megan Munroe delivers a saucy communiqué empowering nice girls worldwide to kick passivity to the curb in her debut book Bitch?, Please! How Nice Girls Can Succeed in a Bitch’s World, which debuts in March 2011.

Shaking the bitch’s empire with chapter topics like Bette Midler, Barbra Streisand, and other big B’s toWhat Emily Post won’t tell you, this book is a cover-to-cover entertainment treatise with an addictively enjoyable conversational style.

From practical how-to-succeed scenarios to laugh-out-loud lessons, this humorous yet poignant dialogue has something for every woman. A unique mix of rhetoric, real-life revelations, kitschy quizzes, and food for thought, this is the perfect road map for your journey to create a successful life in a nice-girl fashion."

After reading the promotional info about Ms. Munroe's book, I was really excited to be able to review her book!   What I found  was not so much of a "nice girls can win too" guide as it was a "what makes a woman a 'bitch.'"  Or maybe how to spot one when you see one? The title was a bit uncomfortable for me, but I hoped the substance would make up for it.  I bounced back and forth on this issue as I wanted to like the book.  She says "Nice is the new smart" and I wish her book would have been a bit more smart, instead of the old tried and true advice to talk to your Grandma.
All things considered?  2 out of 5 stars because I can see what she wanted to do and say, but I think, for me, it missed the point.

This e-galley was provided to me by the publisher at my request and in no way affected by review. 

From reality shows that glorify the gruesome reality of raw female aggression to magazine articles revealing how to cultivate your inner bitch­–there is an undeniable trend of “bitchism” flooding our culture from Hollywood to housewife.
As a nice girl caught up in a culture that caters to the opposite, you may be asking yourself what about those of us who don’t want to be bitches? How do we succeed in a world that caters to the demanding diva?
