No one is perfect—but everyone can fake it

Let's get real. At one point or another, every woman has had to fake it—how else would we get everything done in a mere twenty-four hours? Fake It makes all those time-sucking tasks—such as doing the laundry, baking a homemade dessert for a school fundraiser, and maintaining a socially acceptable level of personal hygiene—seem effortless. With more than 100 shortcuts and wonderfully constructed white lies, you'll be able to fake it all, including:

  • An immaculate bathroom when the in-laws visit
  • Flawless skin for that big night out
  • Liking a crappy dinner at a friend's house
  • A tidy car on carpool day
  • Knowing the answer to your client's question
  • And yes, of course, faking an orgasm
So whether you're asked for your opinion about a stomach-turning outfit, really not feeling it in bed, or just too tired to clean the house, Fake It will give you the foolproof advice you need to get through all of life's situations.

Fake It: More Than 100 Shortcuts Every Woman Needs To Know by Jennifer Byrne is a pithy compendium of, well, 100 shortcuts every woman should know.  Aimed at the busy, the uninformed and sometimes arguably lazy gal, these tips and tricks are good to tuck away for later, and the book is a good reference to have on the shelf for when you just can’t remember how to set the table for a dinner with the Prince of Wales, or, more to the point, how to cover that zit that suddenly appeared this morning. The book occasionally reads like a collection of articles for Cosmo; however, on the other hand, there’s been plenty of times that more information in one of those articles would be just the thing. Byrne accomplishes that here with good segues, practical application examples and clever (if sometimes risqué) humor. This is probably a read more for the younger, twenty-something set, but I enjoyed it and absolutely picked up some good tips, tricks and shortcuts to make my world a little saner.

This book was fun and easy to read. Jennifer Byrne has a unique style. She has an interesting and humorous approach to everyday problems. Her insights and observations, as well as her solutions, are clever and witty. All of us can identify with most of the situations addressed in this book. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a fun read with lots of practical information.

This book is a working girl’s best friend. It’s got tons of helpful solutions for looking fab when you’re feeling drab, navigating the workplace, keeping a clean home, dealing with relationships, and practically every other challenge you can think of. Buy one, and a couple more for your mom, your sister, and best friend!
