Overview

If you've read her wildly popular column in Elle or seen Ask E. Jean - the first interactive advice show on televisionyou know that the outrageously brilliant E. Jean Carroll is the only advice columnist in America with the wisdom, the guts, and the pure rambunctious flair to give it to you straight. And if you haven't caught her act, honey, you don't know what you're missing! No matter what's on your mind, the incomparable, generous-hearted E. Jean's got answers on everything from younger men to adultery to overprotective mothers, from dating to ice cream binges to that ever-hardly perennial, the reappearing ex-boyfriend. Bursting with optimism (yet so completely human she eats nine-day-old carrot cake for lunch), E. Jean Carroll will inspire any woman to strap on her sexiest dress and pursue the fascinating, passionate, boundless life of her wildest dreams. And, of course, she gives men great advice too.

Editorial Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
Witty and wise....You think E. Jean is either intoxicating or just intoxicated.
Indianapolis Star
It's a gas, and sometimes a revelation....E. Jean's punchy wisdom shines.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
E. Jean, as she styles herself, hosts the first interactive advice show on CNBC's America's Talking Network and also writes an advice column for Elle magazine. The letters in this collection, taken from those sources, come principally from women who indicate that, in their cases, the women's movement has failed utterly. That many of them are sex-obsessed is hardly surprising in a sex-obsessed nation, but what is illuminating is that they appear to define themselves solely in terms of the men-or the absence thereof-in their lives. But more alarming is the pervasive lack of a sense of self; many of the advice-seekers are hesitant to act for their own benefit lest they offend family or friends or co-workers or whomever. E. Jean is hip, breezy and fun to read, although men may worry about falling victim to aggressive women egged on by E. Jean's recommendations that they get out there and grab what they want. (Feb.)
Library Journal - Library Journal
Carroll, host of a cable TV program known as Ask E. Jean, here offers humor-tinged advice for those who consider themselves too hip for Ann Landers.
