Despite more power and choices than ever before, women are still angry; that's not necessarily a bad thing, as anger is what continues to open the door for change. In this collection, 15 women speak boldly and passionately about choices they've made, about sex, children, love, and work, and explore what's working and what is not. Their essays, always provocative, honest, witty, and wise, are the culmination of the lessons of the past two decades, the 'me' years and the therapy years, the years that have taught women to express themselves and acknowledge their needs. As celebratory as they are critical, these brilliant essays reflect the truth about life.

    " This is a very empowering book for women. It gives several different viewpoints on pretty much every subject that women struggle with. Some of the short stories I didn't agree with (the open marriage for one) but it was well worth the read. I will swap if someone wants to read it. "

    " The raw, honest, painful truth is invigorating and scary! I loved this book, and continue to recommend it to my women friends. Several of them report feeling more scared and appalled than invigorated, so read this at your own risk. These women spare no gory details in describing their struggles with marriage, child-rearing, and careers. This book is gritty and real and shocking, and it's also easily the best anthology of personal essays I've read in the past couple of years. "

    " Well, this book tells it like it is. There is no sugar coating in this book which really impressed me. Rarely have I seen a book that I can really relate to in regards to motherhood and marriage and work ect. The stories are brutally honest. These woman talk about things that you can't even tell your friends sometimes. It's nice to know that I am not the only one who is pretty much a bitch. "

    " A few good essays, but mostly.... whine, whine, whine. "
