    This is a gift for the fans of the show and the amazing women behind it. It’s a treat to listeners and it is what it is: a summary of what the show brought to their lives (and to ours). It was a delight to read as much as much as it is to listen to the podcast.

    "And it's superhard to be a feminist and also ask your parents to spend thousands of dollars so you can publicly declare the fact that you're going to try your hardest to bone only one person for the rest of your life.

    I quite enjoy the By the Book podcast. Greenberg and Meinzer take two weeks and live strictly (sometimes not so strictly) by various self-help books.

Books that range from really useful to downright ridiculous and the authors of this book have read over 50 at this point. If you have ever wondered about self-help books, listening to the podcast is definitely ...more

    I am not familiar with the authors or the podcast. I was amused by the authors reading 50 self-help books and giving their opinions on them, good and bad. Fun little read and I have read quite a few of the books mentioned as well. Loved the honesty and the sense of humor of these ladies.

    Voice sounds consistent with the podcast. Good summary of what they learned during the first few seasons. Great tips for living too!
