Promotional Information

A pithy, inspiring, instructive and straight-to-the-point manifesto for women on how to be fearless, from one who knows: New York Times bestselling author, columnist, and activist Arianna Huffington.

About the Author

Huffington is a nationally syndicated columnist and author who ran for governor in California's recall election (2003). Her latest venture is The Huffington Post (huffingtonpost.com), a website with blogs by prominent figures from politics, Hollywood, corporate America and the media.

Reviews

Huffington exhorts women to "break through to the other side of fear" and to be bold in all aspects of life. She tells listeners that in order to join a Cambridge debate club, she had to overcome her fear of having a heavy Greek accent. In a nutshell, that's both the tenor and flaw of this book. Huffington might have done better to work on overcoming her accent than the fear of it. To her credit, she reads her book slowly and carefully, and almost all of her words can be understood by even the casual listener. A larger problem is that the message of overcoming fears about beauty, competition in love and so forth probably comes across better in a written text. Not fitting into society's prescriptions does have real consequences, whether one is fearless or not. Nevertheless, women who finish Huffington's mantra might feel better about who they are, even if they are listening while having their bodies waxed. Simultaneous release with the Little, Brown hardcover (Reviews, Sept. 4). (Sept.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
