Overview

Each title in the Not Your Mother's Book series contains approximately 60 real-life stories dedicated to a unique theme, drawn from the passion and experience of dozens of writers in a whimsical and entertaining mix of irreverence and humor. Founded by former coauthors and editors of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, this similarly styled anthology series foregoes the sad, sappy, preachy, or death-oriented stories that were that series' hallmark, and unlike that series, is never afraid to be a little risqué. These stories are funny, daring, different, and smart.

Giving women a reason to laugh out loud about being a woman, this title shouts out, "If you’ve got it, flaunt it!" And the women whose stories are in this book have got it, baby! They are successful, beautiful, giving, inspiring, and exude womanhood more than any generation before them. They are sassy and crass, truthful and funny, and have come into their own with all barrels loaded, cocked, and ready to go. There is no stopping them as they share their real-life stories about womanhood: families, sex, hormones, husbands, clothes, and more.

    I laughed so hard, I cried! These women hold nothing back...thus the title, Not Your Mother's Book! It's hilarious!

    I can honestly say, I have NEVER read a better women's book. This was NOT what I expected. It went so far beyond my expectations that I can't even describe. From bathing suits to menopause, I laughed and experienced the hot flashes of recognition. If you want a good laugh, want to feel part of the (female) gang, or even want to distance yourself from fanning that freezer door--READ this book. You won't care what else is going on till you finish it. And then? You are going to want MORE. Honestly.

    The women I know are fiesty. They live life to the fullest. So do the women who wrote the stories in this book. Many of these stories are absolutely hilarious. The book is attractive and well put together. It is the perfect gift for your girlfriends. But you will want a copy for yourself too, because you don't want them to have all the fun. I wouldn't have been brave enough to tell some of these stories, but I'm glad someone did because I enjoyed the laughs. Thanks!
