Overview

One woman's misguided quest for love, sex, and as much airtime as possible . . .

On The Howard Stern Show, radio personality Lisa Glasberg, aka Lisa G., is painted as a violin-playing, cookie-baking cat lady, but that's all about to change. This alleged wallflower once used her skills in the kitchen to show up at a suitor's doorstep wearing nothing but a fur coat and carrying a plate of freshly baked cookies.

Now, in her unrated memoir, Lisa G. reveals all about her adventures and misadventures growing up and looking for love in all the wrong places. Her journey begins in the only place where she felt comfortable—behind the microphone. Lisa became a workaholic with a larger-than-life radio personality. But when the "on air" lights switched off, she struggled to find her true self. Through therapy and some soul-searching, she transformed from an insecure young woman who attempted to win over men with her culinary prowess into an independent adult who finally learned to love herself.

Lisa's story is full of inspiration and lots of laughs. Smart, sassy, and stacked, Lisa always put her career first. While searching for the perfect job, the aspiring radio star dated her way through an urban bachelorette's predictable gallery of potential mates. In Sex, Lies, and Cookies, Lisa details her hilarious sexcapades, which include everyone from a nice Jewish doctor with a unique fetish to the classic unavailable type who wants an "open relationship."

Lisa G. also shares behind-the-scenes stories from her A-list celebrity interviews, friendships, and time hanging with hip-hop royalty like P. Diddy, Will Smith, and Flavor Flav.

Along the way, Lisa G. became known for having the hottest ticket in town—entry into her exclusive and legendary cookie parties. The book includes the recipes for more than twenty-five of Lisa G.'s famous desserts, like "Losing my Cherry Cookies" and "Double D-licious Oatmeal Cookies," as well as tips for hosting your own fabulous cookie party. Sex, Lies and Cookies is a tasty read that proves why the most satisfying relationship you'll ever have starts with learning to love yourself (and how a little cookie dough can help).

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Popular radio personality and cookie enthusiast Lisa Glasberg shares the story of her difficult road to emotional maturity and intimacy, her career trajectory from a teenage internship at WLIR in Long Island to the Howard Stern Show, and the cookie recipes she devised along the way. Glasberg recounts amusing anecdotes about losing her virginity, sneaking into the Rolling Stones' hotel, and delivering cookies wearing nothing but a fur coat to a man she didn't even like. One of her favorite jobs was the morning show at Hot 97 with Doctor Dré and Ed Lover where she met a slew of hip-hop stars and regularly received late night phone calls from an incarcerated Flavor Flav. Glasberg explains her habit of breaking up healthy relationships and pursuing unavailable men, viewing "decency and niceness as weakness" until she finally sought out a therapist to learn how to handle conflict and vulnerability. (She took her first steps toward truly loving something by adopting a kitten.) The cookie recipes are closely associated to the subject matter, including Gingerbread Men you can "decorate to resemble your exes", and she provides secrets to successfully hosting a "cookie party". Glasberg's story is refreshingly honest and will strike a chord with other "late bloomers" who have struggled with romantic relationships. (June)

Worst book ever. So boring and obviously all lies. She is just using the fact that she works for Stern to sell books. She is a liar on the show and in this book. Don't waste your money on this piece of crap
