Best book of the year!

On Valentine's Day this is what I did: I bought this book. I thought I would carry it around and feel ironic and then some guy would notice me reading a book with the word "sex" in the title and then he would ask me out and we would fly on his private jet to Paris. I'm still waiting for that guy to call but in the meantime I read Michon's book and I wound up staying awake half the night. This is the tender tale of five women, the members of a chapter of the "Grrl Genius" club, who work through problems of divorce, death, love, and life, with dog custody and trying to "trap" a man into proposing and gourmet food and chocolate and fun facts about animal love. I was so, so, sorry when I finished this lovely, funny, wonderful book... and I wound up reading it again the next weekend. It's fantastic, a great read, and I recommend it to everyone who likes a fun book!

Fun, funny, a wonderful read

A grreat reading experience! The story will keep you up late, turning the pages to see what will happen next. The writing will have you laughing so hard you'll be drawing stares from anyone within earshot. And the "self-help" aspect of this, the world's first self-help novel, will fascinate you. Author Michon is a genius, a grrl genius, who wrote the hysterical "Grrl Genius Guide to Life." Her new book isn't really about sex at all, it is about love, and hope, and a woman combating some rather unique issues as she attempts to put her life together. Along the way, she explores the separate paths of her fellow grrl geniuses, each one who faces the challenge of changing their lives for the better. There's a reason why comic genius Carl Reiner loved this book--it's pure pleasure from the opening line to the last sentence. I was amazed by The Grrl Genius Guide to Sex (With Other People)!

A good read to be had by all

Cathryn Michon's second book is wonderfully witty and funny. Most books in the comedy genre are cute and somewhat tired in their rehashing of old premises and have too few payoffs.Cathryn's book reveals a woman who is vulnerable, self depricating and very good at what she does. Mining humor from the tragedy of what life has brought her. Not tragedy in the sense of personal loss, but the loss of self and the triumphant return to the beautiful, brilliant, sweet and funny woman inside. Anyone who reads this book will laugh, agree and feel for her in her battles with absurd ex's and lawyers and root for her and her Grrl Genius friends. If ever there was a TV show about REAL life begging to be made, this is it. Highly recommended. A great read. A great gift. Do yourself a favor and get this book. And fellas? Don't let the "Grrl" in the title scare you. Good stuff.

Brilliant! Every woman should read this.

Well written, incredibly funny, and inspiring book that combines a touching (and realistic) romance with very insightful relationship tips. Cathryn Michon (the character) is so real and she had me laughing out loud through the entire book. This is a book you'll want to pass along to all your girlfriends and start a Grrl Genius club of your own. Take your first step to grrl geniusness and buy this book!

Best self-help book out there.

Now that my marriage has blown up in my face and I'm contemplating whether or not I should just give men a miss for the rest of my life and wondering if woman can live by toy drawer alone, I've been going through self-help relationship books like pints of Ben & Jerry. Every one has seemed like the wrong fit--if women are from Venus I must be from Neptune or something. Most of the books just alienate me. This one fits and is full of heartfelt good advice along with an at turns hilarious and touching fictional autobiography. As I was reading I was laughing out loud and nodding my head saying, "Hell yes!" One of the best parts of the book is "The Grrl Genius 'A Four-Year-Old Has Better Rules than The Rules' Comparison Table, where her niece blows The Rules out of the water. And how can you not love a book celebrating the central importance of chocolate and good lingerie? Now I'm wondering how many other women out there have watched Backdraft with the sound off? I thought I was the only one. This book puts you in a place where your eyes open, and you see exactly what you have been doing wrong in your relationships, and it doesn't tell you how to change your taste in men it simply changes your taste in men, like a magic trick.
