Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
New York City psychologist Friedman, seen daily on cable TV, is a columnist for the Detroit Free Press and author of Smart Cookies Don't Crumble. With freelance writer Kettelhack, she addresses a reader assumed to be, like her patients, a woman bewildered by shifts in self-perception, offering advice for ``increasing your own sense of personal power over your life.'' Citing the ``feminine mistake,'' Friedman cautions against heeding the siren call to total liberation. With equal force she challenges advocates of the stereotype of the housebound wife and mother. Specific and practical steps in this guide encourage the reader to know herself and to discard others' expectations and live her own life. (Jan.)
Library Journal
In her fourth self-help book with a catchy title ( A Hero Is More Than Just a Sandwich , LJ 11/1/86, is this book's immediate predecessor), clinical psychologist and TV personality Friedman reiterates her message that women need to examine and direct their own lives. Here she tries to outline a way to make choices that will result in a satisfying life, whether it includes a man, a career, motherhood, or some combination of these that fulfills the individual's personal goals. Friedman loves lists--the four Rs of positive change, the nine facts of life, the seven goals for the grown-up woman--and she expounds on them with the enthusiasm of a cheerleader. There's nothing new here, but the advice is chatty and the author is popular, so expect some demand.-- Ilse Heidmann Ali, Motlow State Community Coll., Tullahoma, Tenn.
