Summary: Go Girl Guide
Comment: I was expecting it to be a regular sized book, but it's a miniature.

Summary: Merely ok
Comment: I thought this book could have been much better. The chapters on dating and jobs are helpful. However, I just can't seem to get past the chapters on body image...To me it felt like the author was trying to say, "your gonna get fatter as you get older so you can better accept it now. You'll be even more fatter if you have children, so the sooner you accept this the better" Excuse me, but this is supposed to make me feel better about my body?
Maybe it would come across better if she said something along the lines of "You may find your metabolism slowing down, but thats nothing a little exercise and eating right can't fix".
I am almost willing to put money on the fact that the author is overweight cause this comes through very much in her writing.
That alone just made the book a rotten deal for me.
Some parts of the book rang true for me, like examples of how your mind changes as you age. But i really don't think there is much advice worth paying for.

Summary: Yes, but...
Comment: Why is it that every book written for women devotes half its pages to men?
Other than this, it is a truly funny and honest book offering refreshing honesty in delicate areas and good advice in professional ones. Written in just a bit too much of the mega-drama!-and-oh-my-hysterical-crises style.

Summary: Cold Advice
Comment: I actually threw this book out after reading it, which is rare for me. I just thought a lot of the advice, such as how to handle old friends and family, seemed a bit cold-hearted. I understand that a person has to look out for herself, but a lot of the advice in this book seemed quite selfish. I would not recommend wasting your time with this book and figure out what's best for you on your own.

Summary: Sandy Vong
Comment: I really like this book. I read this book more than 3 times and each time I read it, I get something different out of it. My first time reading this book, I thought there is just a lot of common senses. Then I read it again when I moved out and discover more to this book, whenever I get lost, this book reminds me that it is all about life's ups and downs. I can't wait for her next book to come out.
