REVIEW: Bitch, Please! by Megan Munroe

Description

Megan Munroe's Bitch? Please! delivers a saucy communique empowering nice girls to kick passivity to the curb and instead use the strength of inward kindness to shake the foundation of the bitch's empire. Bitch? Please! provides compelling answers to questions that nice girls often ask, like:

How do I handle confrontation with the bitch in the next cubicle?

Why does the bitch always seem to get what she wants?

If being nice is a good thing, why do I feel like a doormat?


From practical how-to-succeed scenarios to laugh-out-loud lessons, this humorous yet poignant dialogue has something for every woman. A unique mix of rhetoric, real-life revelations, kitschy quizzes, and food for thought, this is the perfect road map for your journey to create a successful life in a nice-girl fashion.

About the Author

Megan Munroe is a writer, mother, and nice-girl advocate. Beginning her career at sixteen on the pageant stage, she went from Miss Teen USA to Hollywood, where she was cast in several feature films, music videos, the WB's Everwood, and countless commercials. At twenty, she left L.A. for her hometown of Seattle to pay the bills as a certified personal trainer, then hightailed it to Nashville to pursue a country music career. After recording two albums, becoming a publicist, and playing famous honky-tonks, it became obvious that all of her life experiences had prepared her to write Bitch? Please! As a nice girl in a bitch's world, Megan has spent over a decade successfully getting where she has wanted to go. She resides in Seattle with her husband and son.

MY THOUGHTS
LOVED IT

I wish I had this book when I was in junior high since it would have made my life so much easier growing up.  I always tried to be the nice girl, but that bitch did surface at times and this book would have helped keep that in check.   The author explains that you can be the nice girl without being a push over and achieve that balance you crave.  There are cute anecdotes and exercises to help you work through your inner bitchiness and bring that inner goodness to the surface.

It is written in a breezy, girlfriend-talk, type of storytelling which creates a fun atmosphere and helps you take charge of your life.  There is even a handy appendix that you can carry with you and remind you of the steps to take to maintain the perfect balance of nice and bitch.  There are also quizzes at the end of chapters to help you decide which direction to take.  Overall, this is one of those book that you will be gifting to friends, especially those nasty co workers, who aren't friends yet.
