Book Review: The Bad Girl Guide to getting whatever you want by Cameron Tuttle


Genre: Self-help
Paperback, 191 pages
Purchased from Stoop Sale

I got this book from a random stoop sale a few Sundays ago. While I'm not into self-help for the most part, I found this short read to be laugh-out-loud funny and marginally inspirational at times.

It switches between silly, not-real advice to tangible information that gives you something to think about. You definitely have to have a great sense of humor to get through this one. One of my favorite humorous parts in the book was the section with suggestions on how to enter a meeting late. There's a list of things to pretend to say into your cellphone so you'll look "important":

"I don't care about the time difference, when i say sell, I mean sell!" (roll eyes) "Hong Kong."

"Thank you Ambassador I'll see you at the embassy at 7:30. Ciao!"

While sometimes crass (photocopying your butt at an office party or having a scavenger hunt for black lacy panties in your boss' office at work) this Bad-Girl guide is a really fun and empowering read for women and young adult ladies.

  3. Sounds like a fun little read. I wonder if I could get away with the Ambassador one?

  4. It sounds fun but I'm not sure if I need that kind of self-help :)
