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.
