Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I enjoyed and looked forward to reading this book. It is well written and has helpful advice for every woman, no matter where you are in life. Young woman, married woman, celibate woman and sex kittens could all find something here to apply to daily life."
—Kissin Blue Karen

"Confidence is sexy, and it's not just for men seeking women. The Power of WOW: A Guide to Unleashing the Confident, Sexy You is a self-help guide to embracing the confidence in life fully and more completely. Too often the pressures of life batter us into submission, but the advice of Lori Bryant-Woolridge gives plenty of advice to be a force as a woman, as a mother, and as a lover. The Power of WOW is a charming and empowering read, highly recommended."
—Midwest Book Review

"This lively book should help nearly any woman break out of her rut."

"Lori Bryant Woolridge puts the power of sex into every woman's hands."
—Zane: New York Times best-selling author of The Hot Box and Dear G Spot

"Priceless passion, personal power, and positive pleasure. Finally! The Power of Wow is a book that teaches women how to be genuinely sexy and for all of the right reasons."
—Debbi Morgan, "Angie" of All My Children

"Lori Bryant-Woolridge serves up a crash course in sexual charisma! This isn’t about being sexy for someone else (though your lover will surely benefit), but about exploring your most sensual side and letting your inner vixen roar. The Power of Wow is required reading for lusty ladies everywhere."
—Rachel Kramer Bussel, Editor, Orgasmic and Gotta Have It

"Woolridge comes on like Judith Krantz with a social conscience."
Publishers Weekly

"Whether due to loss, divorce, breakup or those "last ten pounds", at some point in her life, every woman in the world feels like she's lost her "mojo" - her innate ability to not just appear sexy, but feel that way as well. Not only does Lori Bryant-Woolridge go beyond the typical "light a candle and put on some lingerie" approach to regaining sexiness and sensuality, she shows women how to find the "sexy" within, bring it back…and keep it! Strap into your finest footwear, spend some time with Lori and get ready to meet the woman you are meant to be"
—Carole Brody Fleet, award-winning author of Widows Wear Stilettos

"Busyness and routine can drown or drain your sensuality and turn your WOW
into a whimper. Lori Woolridge's The Power of Wow helps you examine your preferences and habits, and offers refreshing, practical alternatives. The book will add ginger to your day with its upbeat tone and irreverent advice. It is self-help with a flair. Read it and do it!"
—Dr. Linda Clever, author of The Fatigue Prescription

"Many women experience an attrition of their "wow factor" simply due to the busyness of our daily lives. After a long days of work, family obligations, socializing, and all that makes for the life of a modern women, how much WOW can you have left? Turns out, a LOT and with Lori Bryant Woolridge's wise tutelage in her fantastic book, more than ever. I recommend The Power of Wow" as a must-read self care manual for every woman.
—Nina Lesowitz, coauthor of Living Life as a Thank You

"I'm so much happier now. I'm not invisible anymore. I'm letting myself be seen."
—Dina, MSA '08

"Now I'm not so bound up by my hang-ups over sex. I've learned to ask and get what I want."
—Virginia, MSA '07

Kirkus Reviews

Welcome to Stiletto University, where catchy slogans are as plentiful as pink candles at a chick-lit reading club, and graduates earn the coveted MSA (Master of the Sensual Arts).

Sensuality coach Bryant-Woolridge (Can't Help the Way That I Feel, 2010, etc.) dons a professor's cap and heels to instruct women in the fine art of getting their sexy back. To begin the author's nine-week course, students are asked to sign a contract—which urges self-love—and complete an entrance exam with questions such as, "On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your sex life?" Then the author encourages the students to enroll online at her website and indulge in a brief pity party complete with fatty foods—teacher's orders. Participants will then grab journals for a fun study of everything sensual, including numerous time-friendly prompts and self-assessment tests, such as kegel exercises for more sizzle in the bedroom. Though erotica is wildly applauded, the author's program isn't just about hot sex. Lessons also teach appreciation of Mother Nature, slow eating for sensory pleasure, how to flirt and the art of seduction. Professor's lecture notes adorn each chapter, as well as pseudo-philosophical nuggets: e.g., "Sexy is as sexy does." Bryant-Woolridge includes many examples of successful alumni, like Virginia, who obtained her masters in psychology after learning to strut the halls of Stiletto U. Ignore the idealized body image of perfect legs on the book's cover; the magic answer in this one is confidence.

Cosmoreaders will love it, but this lively book should help nearly any woman break out of her rut.
