1,000 Ways to Be a Slightly Better Woman: How to Be Thinner, Richer, Sexier, Kinder, Saner and Happier Enough

Overview

Perfection. It’s what we’re all aiming for, right? Doesn’t every woman want to fit—easily!—into a size 6 dress? To be a lioness in the boardroom and a tigress in bed? To be a totally dedicated wife, mother, daughter, coworker, and friend? To eat healthy, get rich, wear fabulous clothes, and, while she’s at it, save the planet?

Overview

Perfection. It’s what we’re all aiming for, right? Doesn’t every woman want to fit—easily!—into a size 6 dress? To be a lioness in the boardroom and a tigress in bed? To be a totally dedicated wife, mother, daughter, coworker, and friend? To eat healthy, get rich, wear fabulous clothes, and, while she’s at it, save the planet?

Well, maybe not. What none of the self-help-book authors seem to realize is that most women don’t desire—or have time for—a total physical, intellectual, or financial makeover. They just feel the need for a little tweaking. Enter Pamela Satran, a self-help guru for those who want to be just a bit better than they already are—or to stop obsessing about how they fall short of some “ideal.”

1,000 Ways to Be a Slightly Better Woman offers more than 120 humorous (but nonetheless useful) lists divided into chapters such as “79 Ways to Lose Two Pounds by Next Summer,” “95 Ways to Be a Sexual Demigoddess,” and “86 Ways to Be a Less Desperate Housewife.” Packaged in a fun and accessible format, these gentle prods to becoming good enough provide the kind of self-improvement most women really want to—and realistically can—achieve.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The crux word in the title is "slightly." "Glamour List" columnist Pamela Redmond Satran doesn't promise miracles; she proposes sensible ways for real world women to improve themselves on every front of their lives. Her "tweaking" lists prod you ever so gently in everything from patience to frugality. Even their titles draw you in: "79 Ways to Lose Two Pounds by Next Summer," "95 Ways to Be a Sexual Demigoddess," "86 Ways to Be a Less Desperate Housewife." Betterment in tasty little doses.
