According to Lisa Bloom, the women and girls of today represent a stark paradox. While American women excel in education at every level, they likewise obsessively focus on celebrity media. While women outperform their male counterparts in employment in urban areas for the first time in history, they simultaneously spend countless hours staring in the mirror contemplating plastic surgery. Lisa Bloom fears that women are in danger of spiraling into a nation of dumbed-down, tabloid-media-obsessed, reality television addicts. Too often, they outsource matters to “experts” and in doing so neglect to truly think for themselves.

Lisa Bloom has the solution, and it involves one simple word: think. In this provocative, entertaining, educational, and thoroughly researched book, Lisa outlines the ways that we as a society, and particularly women, have fallen off the intellectual path and, very specifically, points to how damaging this has been to us on many levels. Lisa shows us the fallout—but she also provides the solutions for “Reclaiming the Brain God Gave You” and seizing back control of your mind and your life. Think is delivered in a no-nonsense manner that will make you laugh, make you question yourself, make you squirm, but, most important, make you start thinking again.

Listener Opinions

    " The author lost some credibility with me when she referred to leading environmental scientists as buttheads. Her recommendations are straight forward - not necessarily life changing - but a good reminder of the importance of being informed. I appreciate her recommended reading list and will read many of the the books listed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Lisa Sharp | 1/24/2014

    " I loved this book not only because it was thought provoking but because it inspired me to go out and read other things that perhaps were a bit out of my comfort zone. I would recommend that EVERYONE read THINK. "

    " So? How will I get my kids, especially my daughter to read this book. Lisa Bloom gives a stirring account of the state of womanhood in the US today. She does not spare the rod in castigating who should be castigated. After the admonishment comes the wise advice. With me she is preaching to the choir. As a card-carrying alien and as a lover of NPR and the BBC but with a beef (excuse me vegans) against the American news industry, judicial system and general form of government, I am all for her complaints and remedies. What she observed in her mother and grandmother, she wants for her 'sisters' and 'daughters'... awareness, participation and happiness. Ms. Bloom's direct talk is inspiring so again.... how do I get my kids to listen? "
