Review:

"Gosh, I wish I knew what (insert your favorite role model here) would do i n my situation." Well, from rock climbers to snowboarders to singers to sailors, wom en of every age, race and profession would like to share a piece of their mind so you can get some peace of mind. The Girls' Book of Wisdom is loaded with motivational and witty quotes on just about everything -- leadership, romance, beauty, success, friends, adventu re and much more. Each quotation includes a brief introduction from the author and is su re to give you some great insight. So the next time you need some advice, turn to Gwyneth Paltrow, Maya Angelou, Lauryn Hill, Miss Piggy, Whoopi Goldberg, Eleanor Roosevelt, Kerr i Strug or whoever else floats your boat. These women will inspire you just when you need it most. -- Karen Bokram, publisher, Girls' Life magazine, October/November 1999

A perfect book for girls, their parents and teachers -- National Women's History Project

A powerful, hilarious, and heart-warming collection of some of today's successful women. -- Indy's Child

Gives girls ideas about how to handle feelings, overcome challenges, and build relationships. It's a book most preteens would enjoy. -- Shari Roan, Los Angeles Times

Great for granddaughters. The Girls' Book of Wisdom features quotes from a dynamic group of intelligent women. Each idea has something positive to offer girls. I intend to send a copy to each of my granddaughters. -- Ann Richards, former governor of Texas

Real quotes of girl-power wisdom from first-, second-, third-wave feminists. . . It's a book to pick up and put down anytime. -- Dallas Morning News

This compact, backpack-size book of quotations is filled with funny, poignant, and often utterly appropriate sayings from a wide range of female cultural icons. ...attractive fonts, funky small graphics, and the mix of historical and modern powerful women will make this choice popular among teen girls. Many libraries might find this gift-sized, paperback book disappearing from the shelves. -- Katie O'Dell, VOYA , April 2000

This is the type of book that can inspire young adults . . . this book could be very popular with adolescent girls. -- Jo Clarke, The Book Report, Mar/April 2000

This page turner is packed with pro-girl quotes. Feeling shy? Flip to the "Confidence" chapter and digest this advice: "Repeat an ego-boosting mantra to yourself: I rule, I rule, I rule." -- Marisa Sandora, Twist magazine, May 2000

What I liked about this book was the quotes -- how they are so real.You think youre alone on something, then you read this and are like, wow, everyone really does go through this! It's like going to a psychiatrist to get help but getting it all out of a quote. It's just awesome! -- SmartGirl web site book reviews
