Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Entrepreneur, reality TV star, and soon-to-be talk show host Frankel (Naturally Thin) offers a comprehensive guide to doing it all, with an emphasis on staying thin, healthy, and successful through work-life balance and organization. Her appealing confessional tone and admission of personal challenges with dieting and love make these otherwise mundane subjects (diet, exercise, and home organization) fun to read. She addresses her divorce up front and throughout the book, discussing it in the context of how she deals with stress and remains true to herself. While the title promises sex, there is little advice on this topic. The book, written with Adamson, features frequently humorous tips on how Frankel handles things, from what to eat during PMS or after a night of drinking, to working out, to how to host a great dinner party. The book is best suited to Frankel fans, as there are many references to her life—as shown on TV and in tabloids. But for those who admire her no-nonsense approach and ambition, this latest offering will likely be an inspiring read. Illus. Agent: Andy McNicol, William Morris Endeavor. (Aug.)
From the Publisher
“She’s quick, articulate, and instinctively ironic.”

“It’s this brutally honest, refreshingly inappropriate candor that has won her millions of fans."

“The mommy mogul manages to do it all.”

“This is a multitasker extraordinaire.”

“There's a certain level of honesty you get from only two types of people: small children and New Yorkers. Bethenny Frankel is quintessentially the latter, and her signature brand of blunt vaulted her to stardom. . . . There's no shortage of irony in Frankel's ability to help others find their way. . . . Frankel's entrepreneurial DNA is pure and rare—an all-consuming drive that finds its way into everything she does, even when she has no idea what that will be.”

“She’s fast-talking, creative, passionate, straightforward, confident and doesn’t have time for bull.”

“Frankel . . . is known for her sharp wit, sarcastic, dry humor, and tell-it-like-it-is personality.”

“The star of The Real Housewives of New York City and Bethenny Getting Married? is honest 24/7 - with or without cameras.”

Forbes
“Fans love Frankel not just because she tells it like it is and swears like a pirate but also because she's an ambitious woman struggling to balance her business, her family, and her past on five-inch Brian Atwood pumps.”
The Huffington Post
“The health-conscious celebrity chef and Skinnygirl mogul…is clearly an expert on all things culinary.”
New York Daily News
“Skinnygirl Solutions” is a compendium of advice for the modern woman on how to live right, from the personal to the professional. Written Bethenny-style, it offers tips that Martha Stewart would never think to share.”
The Washington Post
“Skinnygirl Solutions” is written from the heart. The book is lovingly dedicated to women and it’s clear Frankel genuinely cares about making life better for them, whether it’s sharing a low-fat recipe or creating a business plan. Her pluck and unrelenting work ethic will inspire fans and will probably be responsible for a new generation of female entrepreneurs who are healthy, organized and impeccably dressed."
People Magazine
"As an author, single mom and soon-to-be talk show host, Bethenny Frankel knows plenty about juggling. Her new book offers tips to smooth the way."
Health
“If anyone knows how to get into amazing shape fast, it’s Bethenny Frankel. Despite her crazy-busy schedule, Bethenny has found the secret to shoehorning in enough exercise to live up to her Skinnygirl name.”
People
“It’s this brutally honest, refreshingly inappropriate candor that has won her millions of fans."
Glamour
“Bethenny is honest 24/7 – with or without cameras.”
The Boston Herald
Shes fast-talking, creative, passionate, straightforward, confident and doesnt have time for bull.
Us Weekly
“The mommy mogul manages to do it all.”

Frankel here delivers sound, practical advice on a wide range of topics. It's highly entertaining and hilarious. Do you feel guilty having your own credit card or bank account separate from your husband's? How about having a four-day weekend without kids? How do you stay fit and in shape without dieting? Why can't parents have fun at a kid's birthday party? Who really wants chicken nuggets, parents or kids? Frankel (A Place of Yes) tackles these questions and more in her new book. She is fearless and does not hesitate to share information that is sure to help any modern woman who is trying to do it all. Reader Joy Osmanski will make listeners feel as though a good friend is gabbing with them on a long road trip. VERDICT This modern and honest approach to female empowerment will appeal to fans of the genre, as well as to those of Frankel herself.—Ledezma L. Rodriguez, Bell/Whittington P.L., Portland, TX
