    The cover is a clue to what is inside, listen to yourself here

    Listen, this book is an attempt to set women back to maybe 1800. Did we all come this far which is not far enough in equality to be told

    1. smelling like grapefruit will make us look 10 pounds lighter

    2. if you want a tatoo then you won't get a diamond

    3. shave your legs

    4. don't appear to have knowledge of sports, must be cute and stupid

    And the nice topping, she was married 9 months, interesting, and 32 years old.

    Nice, think I will drop kick her advise in a trash can.
