Think: Straight Talk for Women to Stay Smart in a Dumbed-Down World
Published by Vanguard Press
Girlfriends, what is happening to us? Lisa Bloom asks.
In Think, Bloom reveals the stark paradoxes that American girls and women are living today, including:
All of these factors have left Bloom wondering: How did we get from the Equal Pay Act and Title IX to celebutainment and Botox, and -- more importantly -- what can we do about it?
Bloom offers the solution, and it involves one simple word: THINK.
In this provocative, entertaining, and thoroughly researched book, Bloom illuminates specific steps to reclaiming our brains, regaining focus, and taking charge of our lives. As a working mom who appreciates the value of time, Bloom first revels how rethinking some common but outdated practices can give us more time to breathe and engage our minds. Next, Bloom details how to use these newfound hours more meaningfully by turning away from reality shows and toward compelling and substantive news sites, magazines and books (reading list included), reconnecting with our communities, and becoming more thoughtful and proactive contributors to local, national, and global causes.
Packed with thought-provoking, revelatory points that will get your gray matter growing again, Think is delivered in a no-nonsense, straight-talk manner that will make you laugh, squirm, and question yourself -- and most importantly -- make you start thinking again.
