bookshelves: would-recommend

I read this witty yet totally relatable memoir this past wkend. Yes, I was raised by a mother with the same type of philosophy as Julie's mom. My mother always felt a woman should only go to college for her "Mrs" degree and that a man was to handle all expenses and a woman just needed to look pretty and keep things tidy (albeit with the help of nannies and cleaning staff...). Even after that type of female upbringing, I have grown to be an independent woman who is happily married and happily employed as a writer and healthcare consultant.

Julie's memoir tells a story all too common but with a fresh style, humor and realism like no other of its type.
