4-0 out of 5 stars highly recommended for parents of teen girls
I really learned alot from this book & plan on reading it again. It helped me adjust my parenting techniques with my 13 year old daughter and also made me feel better about myself. I have told many people to read this book, it is very well written and really helps a parent with the adolecent girl.

1-0 out of 5 stars Great advice if your kids perfect already!
I wouldn't have bought this book if I wasn't dealing with a VERY defiant, and manipulative teenage daughter--so when this book assumes that I can just say the right thing and everything will be fine, is an absolute joke!This advice would be great if it worked as simply as the book says.But if you already have a tough kid, these tips are NOT going to suddenly make her see the logic in my rules.Kids don't care about the explaination of why it's wrong to dress trashy or wear too much makeup...they want what they want.This book assumes that your kid obeys you in the first place!The title really drew me in--I thought that I had finally found a book that understood what I am going through.But it's just another below-average parenting book with a catchy title!

5-0 out of 5 stars No, I'm not going crazy!
I thought I going was nuts, not knowing how to parent my pre-teen.At last, a book to let me know I was not going crazy by myself, that it is perfectly normal what we are going through, why I as the mom am the target and spring board for her growing up.It also gives ideas on how to rethink parenting, your responses to issues.It shows why "I" the mom am the only one, cuz I'm the closest one to her, that she is 'experimenting with life' off of.I don't feel so alone, I'm okay, and can see why I get the backwash, and the testing.I highly recommend this book to other moms and also dads too, so they can understand the battle while they watch from the sidelines. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for Catholics!
Double Crossed is a must read for all Catholics - practicing, lapsed or somewhere in between.
5-0 out of 5 stars DOUBLE CROSSED and AT THE CROSSROADS
DOUBLE CROSSED shows how Church Fathers thoughtlessly killed its willingly obedient, unpaid or underpaid nun work force and, in the process, killed so many excellent schools, hospitals, and social services. When Vatican II arrived, this writer had been privileged with sixteen years of extraordinary Catholic schooling, and, in good conscience, felt forced to review how one could maintain faith in such a woman-unfriendly church. Still, no longer identifying with Catholicism, I continued to respect and honor the women who taught me to think for myself. I considered them feminists before we used that term. That's when, in appreciation and tribute, I wrote AT THE CROSSROADS, a novel about four contemporary nuns facing feminist issues. If you liked DOUBLE CROSSED, you will like AT THE CROSSROADS because it lets the reader experience what it was like to be a nun "before" we accepted women as equals, and the kind of moral challenges one must endure before one dares embrace an "after."

1-0 out of 5 stars I think the reader is double-crossed
If the author, as an investigative journalist, took a step back and looked at the past versus the future in terms of American female religious, he would discover that there are orders today that are anything BUT in decline. I'll site one for example, that I have personal experience with: The Nashville Dominicans. This order has over 200 woman, and the average age is 36. Yes, 36. When you look closer, it is easy to see why. As with every other religious order in this country that is blossoming today, the members wear full habits, they pray the Rosary, they focus on Eucharistic Adoration, and they are obedient to the Magisterium. For readers trying to figure out what really happened after Vatican II, here is some true history... When Cardinal Wojtyla (the future John Paul II and a man who had significant input in many of the documents that were issued from Vatican II) returned to his home country of Poland, he helped his people understand and implement the changes that the Council had discerned. The Polish had no problems embracing the changes, and their faith deepened as a result. Poland remains the most devout Catholic nation in the world. The American Bishops, on the other hand, did not exhibit the same cohesive leadership in our own country after Vatican II, and as a result, many priests, religious, and lay people were left to figure things out on their own. The fruits of this experimentation has led to poorly catechized adults, a decline in priests and religious, and a secular mindset. These facts cannot be argued. Post-Vatican II Catholics, like myself, want more than the watered-down faith we've been handed. We seek the truth, which is waiting for us at the heart of our faith, and we seek priests and religious who represent that truth. I, for one, feel double-crossed by Mr. Briggs, not the Catholic Church. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for every mom (and dad)!
Wow!I loved this book.The writing is so great... practical and hilarious at the same time.The description of her childrens' rooms matches perfectly with what I see in my own home.I was laughing out loud at many of the descriptions and will recommend this book to every mom I know.This book is a voice of sanity and reason in a crazy parenting world!Paula Spencer doesn't claim to have all the answers but her advice is to trust your gut and r-e-l-a-x.I think that's the best advice out there.Parenting shouldn't be so hard.It's the most natural thing in the world!I'm glad to know that I'm not the only mom who lets the kids clean themselves in the tub simply by splashing around in the bubbles.
5-0 out of 5 stars Wise, Witty and Wonderful!
Laugh-out-loud funny and head-nodding wise, Momfidence is an essential guide to modern motherhood.Like a modern-day Erma Bombeck, Paula Spencer brings a delightful sense of humor, solid experience and a warm heart to the challenges of parenting, offering up sound and practical advice. Kudos to Paula for bringing common sense--and fun--back into being a Mom.

5-0 out of 5 stars No more guilt trips!!
Paula Spencer is well-versed in all the parenting advice from the 'experts'. Heck, she's interviewed them for articles she has written for magazines. That's why it's ironically-fitting (and somehow poetic justice) for her to tell all of us mothers not to worry so much about what we did -- or didn't do -- in our motherhood roles. Momfidence! is a welcome break from the guilt trip that we often find ourselves on.The book covers so many different aspects of real-life motherhood, and every mom is sure to see herself in many of the situations Paula describes. There is lots of practical wisdom in this book and lots of humor, too. Paula shares personal anecdotes with her readers, giving them a window into her world and true appreciation of her own pursuit of Momfidence! I gave this book to two of my friends who had babies recently, and they love it. I wish this book had been around 15 years ago when I had the first of my three sons. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to read, hilarious and scriptural
Ginger Plowman is humble, real and hilarious.It's like having a godly friend that's more experienced taking you by the hand and leading you through training your children.She's has helped me to be a more discerning listener to the pulse of my child's heart.She helps you train your child by diagnosing the root of the problem rather than just pruning and pruning but never really getting at the "cancer"... (the sin in their hearts, their motives, desires.)
2-0 out of 5 stars Extremely focused on spanking only
I did find some of the advice in this book to be helpful and convicting spiritually.However, I cannot recommend it because of the serious problems.In the first place, the only discipline tool for punishment that the book recommends is spanking (although in one example, in the middle of the *large* section about spanking, the author takes away privileges, but she never recommends that).She never acknowledges or addresses the possibility that the "rod" in scripture might mean anything other than or in addition to literal physical discipline, and she provides no analysis of what the "rod" actually meant in the time of the writing of Proverbs nor of what a "child" is in that context (what age was the writer referring to?).Her point would be much stronger if she addressed some of these issues, but she just glibly throws out the standard scriptures, without any meaningful interpretation or analysis, and then moves on.

5-0 out of 5 stars A classic, ground-breaking feminist of color anthology!
This is such an important anthology of writings by radical women of color on the politics of race, gender, class and sexual orientation. Though it is more than two decades old, the essays and poetry are still ispirational and relevant. Indeed, I strongly feel that this is a book that every feminist should read. That said, I am utterly baffled by how difficult it is to obtain. Could it really be out of print? If so, I hope (hint, hint) that some progressive publishing company like AK Press, South End Press, or Seal re-prints it. I would hate to think of it disappearing into the dustbin of obscurity.

5-0 out of 5 stars Should be On Every Feminist Bookshelf, in Every Library.
Count yourself lucky if you are able to find a copy of the 3rd Edition. It is extremely rare and very hard to find. If you can't find it though, buy the 1st or 2nd Editions.
5-0 out of 5 stars Very important collection
Oh my goodness!! This is an incredible ground-breaking book of awareness and consciousness. It was a must-read for anyone coming of age in the 1980's and it is still relevant today. I came on line to purchase it for a friend who had never seen it, and I am in shock that it is out of print, or even just out of stock (it's unclear which). The paperback is selling on ZBooks for $45. I'm confounded. ... Read more

The book is not accurate.It doesn't address real marriage problems but only looks at men.Women have no responsiblity and I have seen this ruin marriages.The authors wife is the prime promoter.The book is good for men to help them understand women but lacks real marriage substance to have a lasting marriage according to the word of God.

5-0 out of 5 stars 'can't keep this to myself'
I have been an admirer of Wally Lamb for quite awhile now.But when I read that he was volunteering his time to conduct writing workshops at York Correctional Institution, I was so very impressed and moved.I couldn't put the book down; it was so full of life -- and living.Even under the worst circumstances.The writings demonstrate what we -- and the "officials" -- have always known:that most molestations of children are conducted by close friends or relatives.And that kind of betrayal can never be undone. But I was so disappointed when the book was over and I had no more to read from the group.I could have gone on reading much more from these remarkable women, who have lived such violent, difficult lives.And this is not to excuse the crimes they committed, but merely to acknowledge that they are not only their crimes, but complete lives of individuals who evolved to where they are today.As much as I have admired Wally Lamb and his writings before (I only read two books of his), I admire him even more and eagerly await his next book.And I hope there will be another volume from his Women of York workshops.

5-0 out of 5 stars Disturbing butoften hopeful
I am glad that I read this book as it gave me a bit of an insight to what life is like in prison for woman incarcerated at a maximum prison. This book certainly helped me to appreciate the freedoms that most of us take for granted on a much larger scale of understanding. I usually keep my reviews pretty short, but I have to add that these short stories these courageous women wrote in this book are very worth while reading and I learned quite a lot from these woman who were willing to share their lives with us.Being someone who worked at a maximum facility for men, I always wondered what the female experience in jail would be like, and I believe that this book gives you a pretty good idea. None of the incarcerated women make any excuses for their crimes, they accept full responsibility, and then give us a bio of their lives, as far as what may have led up to their crimes.Yes it was disturbing for me to read at times, but yet a book I just could not put down. What disturbed me was clearly hearing about how much violence these woman as children sadly grew up with, and how no one was there to help them, or assist them out of the nightmare of child abuse, and domestic violence. The beginning of the book is interesting as well as Wally Lamb talks about his life just a little bit and what led up to his other book, "She's Come Undone", which is another book if his I couldn't put down.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best books I've read in awhile
I must confess, I did not open this book without some bias.I volunteer at a prison and have a deep interest in women's issues, and after reading the other Amazon.com reviews, I was pretty sure I would love this book.(I was right.)What I didn't expect was a strong desire to share it with just about everyone I know.Don't get me wrong, this is no "Chicken Soup for the Soul" -- there are some hard stories in this book.But the writing is outstanding, and in reading each story I was captivated by the author's personality, struggles, hopes, and essential humanity.This book was, for me, a powerful aid to compassion and understanding.I recommend it highly. ...

EXCELLENT book. I am not the best sometimes at reading nor finishing a book, however this one...I could not put it down. This book was great and she made it very easy to understand. Sometimes the Bible can be a bit hard to understand for some people so they just avoid and don't read. Reading this book will put it all in perspective for you in understanding these great women of the Bible. They all have stories in what you can relate to even in our times now. Its awesome and you will greatly enjoy it and it will greatly strengthen your faith in what God has for you. Its a great book for a womens Bible study group, I highly advise it. Sometimes you don't need all the fancy big books to get what you need out of it....

We purchased this book for our moms' Bible study group and are very disappointed by this book's peppy, shallow nature.For example, the chapters on Sarah's remarkable faith fail to mention Hagar and Ishmael.We will be abandoning our study of this book for one with a more complex and in depth discussion of the triumphs, struggles, and failures of women in the Bible ...

This is hands-down the BEST "mommy" book I have read.Forget all the parenting magazines, forget all the girlfriend guides...anyone who has become a mommy and wonders where the wild girl she was before went MUST read this book.I listened to the audiobook and it had me in stitches.Thank you Brett Paesel for your brutal, raw, and much needed honesty!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Book
This is the funniest, best book I've ever read about the thoughts and emotions of new mothers.Brett Paesel has had the courage to publish thoughts that I don't even admit I have.Even my husband, who endured my reading it aloud to him, enjoyed it and totally relates to the scenarios Brett paints about her own husband.
5-0 out of 5 stars A very funny, refreshingly honest, well-written tale of new motherhood.
Any adult can relate to the core story: How does one resolve a decision your heart knows is right, but which threatens the rest of your being? Here, Brett knows having a husband, child, and family was the right choice, but she'd like a second opinion. What follows is a story of a woman searching for the answer she knows it out there. The answer that is, "yes. Yes. Yes!"

5-0 out of 5 stars I have financially benefited from this book
I read this book 2 years ago and it solidified my view that negotiation was something I had to do more of. While the first half of the book was a little depressing to read, the advice in the second half on what to do about it was inspiring. I personally took solace in the fact that I didn't have to change my personality to ask for and get what I wanted.
4-0 out of 5 stars A book every woman should read.
This is a very important book for all women.It reveals how women have put themselves in positions of disadvantage, by basically not sticking up for ourselves, devaluing our worth, and just not asking for what we deserve.This book, although not always the snappiest read, is full of interesting statistics and studies.It is life-changing.

4-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
If your a woman, even if you aren't in the business world, this is a book you need to read.It is unbelievably fasinating....and depressing because of how true it is.Women just weren't raised to see the things they are missing to get not just by, but get what they deserve, in the world and this book really hits home and give you great ways to see what you can do about it.It's just a new perspective and an increbile read and will definitly change your life, and your bank account, for the better.It'll change the way you live and see your everyday life.From the way you raise your kids to the way to deciding where to go on vacation.Definitly a book that needs to be read, by men and read, if you want to make a difference for the women of the future. ...

Betty Mahmoody married an Iranian, who had been naturalised to America for more than 20 years.Yet when Khomeini led the Islamic revolution, he began to talk more and more of 'home'.While Betty had fears about going to Iran, she thought she must, as she did not want to file for divorce and risk her husband's wrath, and worse, that he could take her daughter who she might never see again.

I first read this book when I was in high school. I loved the book so much that I had to have a copy for myself. This is a very compelling story and Betty shows herself to be strong and always thinking of her daughter's safety more than her own.I think that if high school students had a chance to read this compelling story then they would understand the hardships that some Americans go through when they go to foriegn countries or marry foriegners who end up kidnapping them once they get them into their native land. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Learn To Love God
I love this book! Elizabeth George does a great job of teaching how to love God.Here's a quote from the book: "We need to sail on as we look ahead and reach forward toward spiritual maturity and the goal of loving God with all our mind.As we focus on God, He will guide our steps, empower our service to Him, and work in us the characteristics of Christ as He enables us to both meet the demands of the present and press on toward the prize.This is a great book and it has study questions in the back for each chapter.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book was great!
I found this book to be very, very helpful in dealing not only with depression but panic/anxiety disorder. It offers up some very useful advice. I found the first half of the book more useful, but enjoyed the entire thing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Suggested study.
If you are suffering from depression this is a wonderful study to redirect your thoughts to what "is true." Elizabeth George does a wonderful job having you take a closer look at God's Word. I found I am trusting my Lord Jesus more instead of my thoughts or what I perceive is true. Making the choice to believe the Word of God. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars A Driveling Story of Self Pity
Despite my profound love of literature, I could not bring myself to enjoy "The Woman Warrior".The monotonous writing style as well as the bland anecdotes did nothing but block me off from being immersed from the story.I felt myself yawning everytime I had to start a new chapter, and would have been estatic when I finished the book had I contained the energy to feel in such a way.I closed the book feeling drained, bored, tired, and unfulfilled.And if that was what I was aiming for while I read, I wouldn't enjoy the skill at all.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not a must-read, but a should-read
As a student of literature, I have had to read Kingston's "No Name Woman" numerous times as it is widely anthologized. This story represents the first of five sections in "The Woman Warrior."
5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
I just finished reading this book as a requirement for my research in Folklore and Mythology class. At first, I wasn't exactly thrilled at the opportunity to read it, for I'm sure that anyone can relate with the pains that go with required reading. However, I was truly blown away.

5-0 out of 5 stars Empowerment
Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry breathed life into me. I was completely empowered to walk in healthy relationships and break through the bad ones. It is truly life-changing. Let the words in this book turn your nightmare into a dream!

5-0 out of 5 stars now this is the truth......
As far as I am concerned our socialized culture has failed in trying to convince me that purity and faithfulness are a thing of the past. I no longer listen to cultural icons whose lives only reflect faithlessness and momentary gratification.I hear a much louder voice, the voice of individuals like Lisa Bevere who speak of truth that is unchanging. Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry is packed full of tools that will help us be the strongest women this world has ever encountered.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
This book answers so many questions that generations of woman have secretly asked themselves.How far is too far, can my purity be restored, and what exactly is modesty?Lisa does an excellent job at presenting the word of God in answering these questions.What a blessing to the body of Christ! ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Writing; Offensive, Racist Material
The majority of this book (at least the essays anyway) can be summed up in three main topics: educating readers about her culture, praising her culture to the point of absurdity, and claiming the entire white culture to be both ignorant and racist.
1-0 out of 5 stars an excruciatingly painful read - only do so if you must
This book is a tormented stream of consciousness from a lady who was obviously fighting major demons.It is exactly the type of book that you would expect an amateur academic to "wow" and "gush" over.The discerning reader, on the other hand, sees page after page of outdated cliches, sob-stories, and anger-filled tantrums.Anzaldua would like you to believe that this is all the fault of the "white" culture messing with the enlightened cosmic race of the mestiza.She'd like you to think that her mestiza/chicana/lesbian/female status completely determined her status in life.The truth is that Gloria was really ugly, and that, more than anything else, made her the bitter, annoying pseudo-intellectual that the was.

1-0 out of 5 stars Racist Garbage
While most reviewers seem to be bent on lauding Gloria Anzaldúa's "insightful and progressive" writings, I can't help but take a different viewpoint.The vast majority of her essays, while cloaked in a sense of righteous equality, are quite simply racist drivel.She speaks of acceptance and tolerance for foreign cultures in America, and harps on the evils of correcting students when they use improper English, yet instills her writing with a blatant and offensive racism.

5-0 out of 5 stars An inspiration and helpful book for women
The introduction of this book is worth the retail price. It's an essay in itself. A sample sentence: "To have a friend is to acknowledge that some part of someone else's life which we have held tenderly, trustingly in our own hands might well die with us." Okay, it's a sentence you may have to read twice. But then you "get it," and you reflectively pause before continuing.

Editorial Review

All of us, from birth onward, learn by emulating others. Yet when it comes to our professional lives, we often forget that what we see, we imitate, and what we imitate, we become. This is obviously a positive thing for those who have found successful, encouraging mentors in their fields, but finding those mentors is still much easier for men than for women. In Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Advice Helpful to Women at All Stages of Career
I bought the book "Be Your Own Mentor" during a transitional time in my career. The advice offered has provided me with many great ideas on advancing my career. I thought the get ahead basics were especially helpful. As I was looking for a new position, the job search advice helped me to form opinions on how this new position could be a stepping stone to my future. It urged me to take a look at my career as a progression of jobs on my resume.Additionally, Sheila Wllington offered advice that I had not read in traditional job search books. I think this book is helpful to women at all stages of their career whether just starting out or ready for a mid-career change. If you think you need some advice from successful women and need some ideas on how to further your career I highly recommend this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for women in business
I wish this book had been around when I was just starting out in business. I would be a lot better off today if I had gotten the great advice it gives out.Much of the writing is based on research done at Catalyst, so is fact-based.Shelia Wellington uses her vast experience and connections to give a road map for success for women in the business world.Many nuggets of advice from women who have reached the highest levels in their careers.A must read.

4-0 out of 5 stars Put "personal publicity" on your mentoring agenda!
Being your own mentor is a critical concept and certainly includes mastering the art of networking. But a good self-mentoring plan must also include achieving corporate and community visibility. To really take charge of your career there is no substitute for creating a strategic 'personal' publicity plan. Your boss won't do it, and neither will your mentor. It is up to YOU. People have to know who you are, what you stand for, and why they should hire you, promote you, or do business with you. That's really taking charge of your career. ... Read more

This book explained so much!Growing up with foster parents and no consistent parenting has made life confusing.Its been interesting to read that any adult, even the adults with the same parents from birth also have attachment issues.This is the first book I have found that explains how someone's childhood dramatically affects our ability to attach to our own children.Every parent I know wants to give their children their best and this book shows me how anyone understand ALL the sides of attachment disorder.Most of the books I have found have only explained why a child is not able to attach.What a relief to understand the whole subject.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for professionals in mental health fields!
Karen's work reviews attatchment research and theory from inception through present day. It's a fascinating read as well, authored by a practitioner and teacher, one who interviewed the great minds that participated in creating a phenomenal view of child development. However, the back cover recommends it as a guide for parents, which it is not. Most parents would feel misled by finding a review of the field rather than recommended parenting skills or practice.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the most influential books I have ever read
My education is in Physics and Economics, so whatever psychological knowledge (or lack there of) I have is self-taught. Accordingly, please understand my review is from a perspective that is surely naive. That being said I found "Becoming Attached" so profound that it spawned a hunger in me too learn as much as I can about psychology that has continued unabated 2 years after I first read this book. Currently I am immersed in Carl Jung's original writings. If anyone wants a real understanding of how nurture influences individually psychology, I believe this to be an amazing starting point. Please note: this book is solid and dense, I would not read it if you are looking for something light and airy or are interested in the latest pop-psychology. It is for the serious novice. Since I am now a firm believer that nature and nurture work in combination to determine who we are individually, I also highly recommend reading the book "Moral Animal" by Robert Wright. "Moral Animal" is the perfect compliment to "Becoming Attached" and gives a very compelling introduction on how nature influences us. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Finding Your Authentic Self: A Fine Book For Men As Well
It is a sad reality that so many people have their identities molded by the wants and needs of others. And I think that few would dispute that this is more likely to happen to women. There are powerful social and perhaps biological reasons why this might be. But the important point is that there are millions of people who are not fulfilling their potential. And there are many men who are stuck in the same bind.
5-0 out of 5 stars Don't Lose Yourself to Other People
Women have had it especially hard for many centuries. Only in the last 100 years in North America have we been able to be ourselves. However, through social dictation ... women fall prey to living for others. This is a fascinating account of how to bring back one's self after many years of being lost in others' agendas.

If you are standing at your own edges, sometimes desperate--sometimes numbed, please get this book.And if you can, get A YEAR BY THE SEA first and then A WEEKEND TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
