Overview

National Bestseller!

“My father was a kidder, and he could usually make me laugh; in laughing I was able to feel better about myself. He also gave me a piece of advice about beauty that has stayed with me. “Beauty fades,” my father used to say, “but dumb? Dumb is forever.”

Judge Judy's father impressed upon her that a bright intellect, a curious mind, and a passion for learning were priceless commodities. In the course of her career as a Family Court Judge and a presiding Judge on her popular TV courtroom show, she has seen, over and over again, the devastating fallout for women who made stupid choices on marriage, parenting, and their future. She has seen women make excuses for men who abuse them, who tolerate demeaning and demoralizing conditions at work, who instead of choosing mates allowed themselves to be chosen, and who elected to defer to men instead of their own judgment.

Here, the savvy, opinionated, and irrepressible Judge Judy exposes these dirty little secrets so many women share, and offers her own take on the destructive repercussions they have. Using real cases involving women of every background'from the most affluent and successful to young girls just starting out'as well as stories from her own life, Judge Judy shows women how to fix their attitude, and equally important, how to teach their daughters to follow their dreams while keeping their individuality intact.

In Beauty Fades, Dumb is Forever, Judge Judy uses provocative and hilarious examples from her own life to instill in women the urgency of building a solid foundation from within. Of building character. Of nourishing yourself. Of learning from mistakes and fighting battles you can't win. Of understanding what sex can and cannot do for you. Of the importance of humor and self-reliance. Her straight-talk tells women to get on with it, and never forget that Smart is Forever.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In her experience as a woman, a mother, a lawyer, a family court judge, and a TV personality, Judge Judy Sheindlin (Don't Pee on My Leg and Tell Me It's Raining, HarperCollins, 1996) has learned a thing or two about human behavior. Here, she discusses how women can be successful, happy, and fulfilled by taking control of their lives. Sheindlin illustrates her points with stories from court cases she's seen and her own life. Known for her no-nonsense attitude, she spares no one, not even herself, from scrutiny. She's articulate and witty, and she uses humor well, both encouraging people to laugh at themselves and keeping her tone from being too preachy. This should prove popular with fans of Judge Judy. An excellent choice for self-help collections.--Adrienne Furness, Lockport P.L., NY

    This woman is right

    As an ER doctor and someone whose friends turn to her in their hour of need, I can tell you that I have found Judge Judy's views to be right on the mark. It's not about being bitter! It's about being smart. Yeah, you may not like her advice because it's not candy-coated, but the woman's right...deal with it!

    perspective is important.

    judge judy sees life and women's experiences from within the legal system. it is fully time that a woman within that system spoke up. granted, that perspective is rather slanted, but it also rewards common sense... i can't think of a better gift for young women ... the world is a remarkable place, but there are alot of cruel experiences if women are devoid of, or ignore, common sense. sometimes the small choices in life -- going along or taking a risk which seems innocuous make for massive life changes. several examples spring to mind, like not inviting a young man you've just met to spend time in your dorm room at college is one.... not hitchhiking.... not saying 'i've changed my mind and don't want to get married -- just because the preparations are all in place and a little money's been spent' -- when going thru with it would cost alot more than money in the long run -- the emotional and physical damage gets alot worse sometimes when we 'go along'.... this is not being 'bitter'; this is recognizing reality. good book.
