I adored this book by the Editor in Chief of Cosmo.

It's divided into very short (1-3) page "chapters" which give pieces of advice on life. You might think, Cosmo being a hotbed of fashion and sex tips, that these would all be sex or fashion related.

But no! Most of the book is about attitude for success. Kind of like when you read the Sex and... "manuals" of Helen Gurley Brown.

Oh, there is definitely a section on makeup (I may have finally learned "smoky eyes") and a few chapters on sex (with sta

I'm a sucker for the bargain bin at Barnes and Noble. Thankfully I have a limit of three books per trip. This one managed to make it in my stack.

Kate White is the editor of Cosmopolitan magazine as well as a successful mystery writer. She condenses the best material she's gleaned from her years at Cosmo and shares it in this book.

It's helpful. Not as helpful as stuff the Dalai Lama might say but it's not bad. I'm kind of tired of thinking about how to please a man, though.

General consensus: Empo

I liked this self-help book which touches all the different areas of a young 20s life. It's an easy read and it was perfect for me, someone who is in the middle of a job search and not really having a lot of experience under my belt. So reading those little tips about work and life were my favorite parts of the book. It helped me figure out the more ways I can improve myself at work. I also really like how the author includes her personal stories to the lessons she points out. I'm a person who r ...more

I expected this to be a business book, but it really wasn't. It felt like I was just reading an extended version of cosmo articles. I didn't really learn anything new.

Just finishing this up. A great summer ready by the editor-in-chief of Cosmo. A quick read and some of the tips are great, some are things we've all heard before but it's still is entertaining.

Not really a book for a 27 year old... but it was relevant when I started it when I was 24

Excellent advice, both on the sex (which I expected from cosmo's editor) and on life.

Kate White is the New York Times bestselling author of nine works of fiction—six Bailey Weggins mysteries and three suspense novels, including her latest, EYES ON YOU. For fourteen years she was the editor in chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, and though she loved the job (and the Cosmo beauty closet!), she decided to leave in late 2013 to concentrate full time on being an author.
