A fun, light-hearted and amusing read which really shouldn't be taken too seriously!

I absolutely loved this book! Jerusha Stewart interwove humor with realistic, girl-empowering ideas. Honestly, I would even recommend this book to women who are married or in a relationship. It reminds you that you can be fabulous all on your own, and that inner strength and wisdom lead to happiness, not a partner.

I liked this book for it's girl-power attitude. She made some great points and had some good ideas, but I thought overall it was a little on the materialistic side. It was very much about buying your own diamond, taking yourself out to dinner, taking yourself on a nice vacation, etc. I would rather just be happy with me, without needing to have all those things.

This book didn't quite live up the synopsis on the back. I started this book assuming that it was geared towards younger singles (maybe it was the colour of the book?). It turned out to be more for forty or older singles. Which meant that some of the advice didn't work for my situation. Some of the advice also goes against some of my moral beliefs, but that was more my own fault for not skimming before buying than the author's. I was also surprised by the fact that there was a good amount of adv ...more

Awesome... a great read for those who are single...want to learn hoe to fall in love with yourself or add to the listy you already have... being single has its advantages... so enjoy it...

Nothing wrong with dening in a relationship enjoy who you are as a person so you can attract the right one.. But for those who want to remain single and marriage is not a priority....

This is a great manafesta for the single person.. enjoy life... there are so many things to do... to see... and just enjoy life..

I have to say that though I agree with the author's general premise that single life can and should be lived to the fullest and that it does have some perks not available to those who are not single, there are many, many areas she discusses in this book where she and I do not agree at all. I may keep the book for the list of resources at the end--if it weren't for that, I'd probably be donating it to Goodwill or Salvation Army.

man, i hated this book. i literally threw it across the room several times before I finally quit it entirely. Takes the attitude that since you chose to be single, you should embrace it, which, while that may be good advice for some, it is not for those who feel that single-dom may have, in fact, been thrust upon them. shut up, book!

I go back and forth over what I want for myself over the long-term, but I always enjoy a good manifesto/a and thought this book, which got good reviews, and so is less likely to be that vapid, would be a useful start for self-discernment.

Started reading it ... kind of good but only targets a certain age group. It is a light bedtime read for teenage girls but isn't written well enough to hook up someone, stopped reading it mid-way.

A pretty witty, fun book, but there are some flaws in the writer's approach to how many single women truly function, the suggestions and tips aren't universal.
