KLIATT
This book can make you smile by just picking it up and flipping through the pages. It is doused with brilliant, vivid images and photographs of women looking energetic, healthy and happy. The text gives short, snappy advice on everything from love to friendship, sorrow, eating, beauty, healing, energy, awareness, growth, spirit, and hope. It offers a philosophy on how to be the best person you can be, and talks about yoga, meditation and karma. It's a manual for life emphasizing the truth and beauty inside all of us, without any dull, didactic lectures. This should be in everyone's library. KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2000, Allen & Unwin, dist. by Independent Publishers Group, 319p. illus. bibliog., $16.95.

According to the author, girlosophy emphasizes intellectual and emotional balance, individuality, physical health, and natural beauty. It is designed to be a new philosophy for girls, providing them with the spiritual, emotional, and practical means to achieve their full potential. The two books are a mixture of advice from the author, excerpts from the writings of well-known philosophers and poets, and references to various religions and new-age thought. The books are rendered visually appealing through the use of multiple fonts, artistically arranged page layouts, and color photographs of girls from all over the world. A Soul Survival Kit endeavors to present common-sense advice to girls in a compact but highly visual format. The author states that her purpose is to provide information to girls at a time in their lives when they are still learning and growing. The Love Survival Kit uses the same format to focus on love and relationships. The author is not authoritative in that she is not educated in this field. She has traveled extensively, enjoyed numerous work experiences, including ski patroller, market consultant, and photo editor. Teen girls will find information in both books to think and talk about, but most of it is not new. The attraction is in the presentation. Middle school and high school libraries should purchase both books and display them prominently with references to the author's Web site at http://www.girlosophy.com. They will not stay on the shelves for long. Glossary. Photos. Further Reading. VOYA CODES: 3Q 4P M J S (Readable without serious defects; Broad general YA appeal; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9; Senior High,defined as grades 10 to 12). 2001, Allen & Unwin, 336p,

School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up-A beautifully designed book that promotes what Paul calls "a new philosophy for girls." Gorgeous full-color photographs are punctuated with brief, inspirational text. The author urges readers to use the book as a tool to help them realize their true selves and take charge of their lives. One key lesson for would-be girlosophers is that "it's your life-think about it." The highly stylized layouts incorporating colorful backgrounds, numerous clear photos and reproductions, and a variety of fonts in silver, white, and bright shades help to illustrate the various messages. While she makes the point that the women and girls in the photographs, "are not professional models," readers may have a hard time believing her. Similar in scope and flavor to Mindy Morgenstern's The Real Rules for Girls (Girl Press, 2000), this text has a more serious, New Age tone. Between the attractive art direction and the intelligent suggestions for life, this book is a real winner and sure to appeal to teens.-Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    This is a total 'feel good' book

    Girlosophy is the perfect book for every girl. It shows you how to feel good about yourself and teaches that its whats on the inside that counts. This book shows you how to detox after an event such as a breakup. Girlosophy has shown me what i've been missing inside myself.

    This book graciuously helps you to find your inner self and be one with your mind, body, and soul. Through my many personal experiences, I have been motivated to look within myself and feel free in the body I am in.
