Overview

Ever wonder why you're the last single girl among all your married girlfriends? Do you have a gorgeous, talented, witty daughter, sister or best friend who just can't seem to find the perfect mate? Don't stress, you - and that fabulous woman you know - have something in common with 96 million other Americans: You're single!

Let's face it: if you're single, it's because you CHOOSE to be, not because you're DOOMED to be. The Single Girl's Manifesta is glorious vindication for those who are not held captive - literally or figuratively - by the tyranny of the "We."

After author Jerusha Stewart found herself wondering about her own single status, she interviewed hundreds of compatriots across the country about their choice to remain single. Jerusha leaves no stone unturned as she explores the pleasures of single living. You may be the last single girl in your crowd, but you've saved the best for last!

The Single Girl's Manifesta lets readers in on how to:

  • Value being single
  • Not be daunted by dating mishaps
  • Manage life's milestones when you're unmarried
  • Banish the fear of buying a home, dining out, or traipsing 'round the world solo
  • Embrace the inner truths that lead you to finally answer the question "Why am I single?"

This outlandish ode to singles is packed with engaging quizzes, revitalizing rituals, sizzling love letters and a killer recipe for Morning-After French Toast. It's for the woman who has it all, without having to tie the knot. So the next time you and your girlfriends are about to indulge in another "poor, single me" conversation, open this book instead and jumpstart the sensational solo life you deserve!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While plenty of books share tips for finding Mr. Right, and others counsel women to enjoy singlehood before that happens, this "manifesta" urges older women to value the single state in and for itself. Drawing from her online biweekly column "Singles & Doubles," Stewart provides information on being one's own self supporter, quizzes for self-understanding, and ideas for managing life's milestones without marriage. Readers will encounter out-of-the-box advice, e.g., seeing one's mechanic, hairdresser, lawyer, and accountant as partners in making life work. Also included are recipes for delights such as Morning-After French Toast and a monthly calendar of ideas that includes hosting an Oscar night party in February. This fun, thoroughly enjoyable, and inspiring book is recommended for all libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

The Single Girl¿s Manifesta is a fun, intimate, relatable guide to living a successful and fulfilling single life. Stewart not only shares her own personal life experiences with `singlehood,¿ but also includes a variety of perspectives and accounts of singles from all walks of life¿ages, cultures, geographical locations. The book not only inspires women (and men) everywhere to embrace the single life with honor, but to also enjoy it. It¿s about being alone and loving who you are with and understanding that singlehood, just as marriage, is a choice. Stewart did an excellent job of revealing the power and strength that comes with being single and encourages singles everywhere to live `stupendously.¿
