Not Your Mother’s Book (NYMB) is a new anthology for a new century. Women of all ages and with very different life experiences have shared their personal stories for "Not Your Mother’s Book . . . On Being a Woman." Some are seasoned writers, others simply have great stories to tell, but all are stories that women can relate to--and laugh about.
The authors write candidly and most with great humor, about life as a woman, be it learning about sex as a teen, dealing with husbands, handling the dreaded menopause, dieting, clothing mishaps, managing goofy relatives or any of the dozens of other women-focused life experiences. Chapter titles include: Just Saying; They’re Called Boobs!; Keeping Up Appearances; Worth Our Weight in Gold; Hear Me Roar; Stand Up!; Never Again!; and Sense and Sensibility.
NYMB stories are hip, fun, daring and DIFFERENT! No sad, sappy, preachy or death and dying stories here. And there is nothing X- or R-rated, but definitely edgy! Story titles include Honey, You’re a Fat Ass; Single and Searching; Tawdry Behavior; and Everything’s Bigger in Texas.
Series founders Dahlynn McKowen and Ken McKowen spent 10 years as Chicken Soup for the Soul coauthors/editors before launching NYMB. "Not Your Mother’s Book . . . On Being a Woman" is the first in the new series, with another 30 titles under production. "Not Your Mother's Book . . . On Being a Stupid Kid" will be released in late October and features stories about all those stupid things we did in our youth. "Not Your Mother's Book . . . On Dogs" will follow in November, as well as "Not Your Mother's Book . . . On Travel." For more information, including submitting a story for consideration, visit PublishingSyndicate.com.

I laughed so hard, I cried! These women hold nothing back...thus the title, Not Your Mother's Book! It's hilarious! You feel like it's "Girls Night Out" and you're laughing with your BFF's over every possible experience a woman can have! I recommend this book to all who need a good laugh-out-loud read. Wonderful!
I can honestly say, I have NEVER read a better women's book. This was NOT what I expected. It went so far beyond my expectations that I can't even describe. From bathing suits to menopause, I laughed and experienced the hot flashes of recognition. If you want a good laugh, want to feel part of the (female) gang, or even want to distance yourself from fanning that freezer door--READ this book. You won't care what else is going on till you finish it. And then? You are going to want MORE. Honestly.
OMG I just about split my sides laughing. Vajazzle My What? I couldn't believe it was a real thing. This book is full of great stories and just one of the books in an exciting new series. Check it out!
The women I know are fiesty. They live life to the fullest. So do the women who wrote the stories in this book. Many of these stories are absolutely hilarious. The book is attractive and well put together. It is the perfect gift for your girlfriends. But you will want a copy for yourself too, because you don't want them to have all the fun. I wouldn't have been brave enough to tell some of these stories, but I'm glad someone did because I enjoyed the laughs. Thanks!
