Sassy & Revealing

Since I became a Grrl Genius, nearly all my character flaws have mutated into charming evidence of my brilliance. ~Cathryn Michon When a stand-up comic decides to put a pen to paper, we can only wonder how she will transfer the punch lines to print. Cathryn Michon not only succeeds, she pleases time after time. My sniggling (something between a snicker and a giggle), giggling and laughing loudly intermittently got me sent to my room because I was enjoying life too much while my husband stared aimlessly at the TV. While many may say this is Bridget Jones at a Tony Robbins seminar, I have concluded this is much more Bridget Jones awakening to the words of Deepak Chopra. How could anyone miss: "your body's inherent wisdom." She is so yoga at times all while reminding me fondly of my best friend in high school who would have me rolling on the floor laughing as we composed fake letters about boys we had met at the beach. Just as we imagined these delicious and uninhibited revelations of fantasy, Cathryn Michon will at times embellish life so as to awaken a woman's wicked naughty side, all while having innocent fun. Throughout this work-of-art-comedy-routine-in-print, you will be swept into a world of delicious wit, enlivening humor, total honesty, beyond total honesty and did I mention, TOTAL honesty? With a vocabulary to die for at times, Cathryn Michon weaves images of reality with precision. Through her writing we come to understand her preoccupation with spontaneous doughnut fulfillment and observe her self-destructive patterns of behavior leading her to certain doom. It is in these moments when inspiration strikes and revelations are born of an awakened consciousness in the face of death itself. She also confronts societal ills with a high-class clarity and explores the synchronicity of life. Like Bridget, she learns life's best lessons through putting herself through the paces. She must experience life, sometimes fail and eventually rise to the occasion as a Grrl Genius. This makes her loveable, human and oh so funny. The Grrl Genius Guide to Life is also filled with research on the subject of scientific discoveries. You will be amazed at what has been hidden by society and then revealed by the Grrl Genius herself. In fact, you may shock your friends by revealing the details of Einstein's life or explaining how the cotton gin was actually invented by a woman. I learned how to live longer by relaxing in steam rooms and how to understand the deepest of life's mysteries through careful observations. Sweep aside mundane realities, it is time to pull out the pink postits and cover your refrigerator with quotes like: "Today is the First Day of the Rest of My Genius." I loved reading about the cooking competition and at times the writing reads like sardonic slapstick with an evil twist. The author has one of those naughty minds always willing to devise creative revenge tactics for playful investigation only. Various phrases and sente

Funny and Over the Top

Writer/Actress Cathryn Michon has written a funny novel that has a great message: Love yourself. Very visual in description, this book reads like a live performance. Other great love yourself girl's books you may enjoy: Gutsy Girls, the Gifted Girls Series, Queen B Superheroine, the mini-book Queen B's Guide to Being a Superheroine, and GirlTalk.

I laughed and laughed

I took this book with me on a recent trip to was the perfect sitting in the hammock and relaxing book. It made me smile over and over,,,,

Cathryn Michon Rocks!

Like a great standup comedy routine, this book will make you LOL, even when it's pathetic. Not surprising, since the author IS a standup comedian, not to mention a very successful TV writer (Episodes for "Designing Women", "Sisters", & "China Beach" being among her notable works). The true stories of her hilarious life will strike many a chord with readers (The description of her midnight craving for "Krispy Kreme" doughnuts which becomes a frustrating New York City odyssey (is there any other kind?) is a riot. Ms. Michon achieves the impossible, going through a divorce with her sense of humor intact. The Lists, Quizzes, "Post-It's", and recipes (yes, recipes, even!) are extra fun. (I made the potato salad; it's to die for...and colorfully festive, as well.) Check it out! You'll want everyone you know to read it, too.

FUNNY! Right to the point.

I really love this book, I read many book about women empowering, all of them seriuous. This one has the same message but in a fresh, funny way! I couln't stop laughing. Michon got a great idea for women and put it to work. Join the club!
