This is such a great book! It calls for women to think for themselves, be educated, independent, and change the world. It is very inspiring! The only complaint that I have about the book is that she tends to speak of people who do not believe in macro-evolution as uneducated. It is a bit of a insult of my intelligence, considering that I have been highly educated and I have done the necessary research for myself on whether macro-evolution is true or not. That is the only reason why I took off one star from my review. Considering that there is not enough evidence to support the claim, I cannot support that position. However, I did the research and I have the right to claim such a position. That is the point of this book: to teach women to think for themselves instead of letting society tell them what they are supposed to be. I agree with her foundational message wholeheartedly and I highly recommend this book for women who have trouble seeing what their role in society is. Check it out!
Review “Think is a real eye-opener. Lisa Bloom brings her extraordinary passion, humor, and intelligence to the important subject of how women and girls can fight being drowned in a sea of pop culture, and lead lives that are fuller, richer, and more connected. Think educates, informs, and—thanks to Lisa’s wit and sense of humor—keeps us smiling along the way. Think is a must-read for all mothers and daughters.” —Dr. Phil McGraw, Nationally syndicated television host and #1 New York Times bestselling author“Lisa Bloom is a dynamo and her book is as smart, quick, and funny as she is. Think paints a clear picture of the power of tabloid culture, inspires personal change, and evokes the desire to make a difference. Best of all, Think provides a step-by-step guide on how to rescue ourselves from the belly of the beast. This book is a must-read for girls and women everywhere.” —Rory Freedman, #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of Skinny Bitch “Every woman in America needs to read Think. It made me think about how I can become more successful, influential, and compassionate. Lisa Bloom is a leader for our times. Listen to her.” —Jane Velez-Mitchell, bestselling author and host of Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell on HLN “Witty, insightful, and practical. Think brims with specific ideas to give women more time, happiness, and meaning in our lives. Even if it were not written by my daughter, I’d still recommend this life-changing book to everyone I know.” —Gloria Allred, women’s and victim’s rights attorney, partner Allred, Maroko & Goldberg “Think reads like a conversation with that best friend we all need. Funny, wise, opinionated, Lisa Bloom covers everything from Angelina Jolie to precut veggies in this how-to, what-for, this-matters guide to a meaningful and honorable life.” —Jeffrey Toobin, CNN Legal Analyst, New Yorker writer, and author of The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court“Lisa Bloom is a woman of brilliance, boldness, and beauty. One of the smartest and most erudite people in the American popular culture, you debate her on TV at your own risk. In her new book, Lisa deals with one of our nation’s most pressing subjects: the need for women to use, and be appreciated for, their minds. As the father of six daughters, I am immensely grateful to Lisa for this outstanding and riveting contribution.” —Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, New York Times bestselling author of 10 Conversations You Need to Have with Your Children
Think: Straight Talk for Women to Stay Smart in a Dumbed-Down World Hardcover – Bargain Price, May 24, 2011 by Lisa Bloom (Author) Review
I enjoyed every minute of this book. I am an avid reader and have read many of the same books as Lisa Bloom. I believe reading is the foundation for everything. Instill a love for reading in your child and he/she will excel! I would like to recommend a few other books: "Leaving Microsoft to Change the World" by John Woods, "Gifted Hands" by Ben Carson and "Marva Collins’ Way" by Marva Collins. These books will confirm everything Lisa is trying to instill in her audience. Reading and education are the keys to a satisfying, rewarding life. Of course, character comes first, but that is a given. Thanks, Lisa. I hope you write more books! -Read Reviews-
This book gave me a rude awakening. I found myself questioning the things I knew. .. Lisa was right. I could name more Kardashians (all of them) before I could name a correct level of government. I knew nothing of any world events. But I definitely knew about Brangelina, Speidi, etc. Throughout reading this book, my ears perked up, and I found myself reading something Lisa said and going to google it to find out how true it actually was! Haha! When I finished this book, I started reading her recommended books and I love them. They’re not something I would EVER pick out for myself, but she suggested the right books to give me more information on topics I should probalby know more about. I should know what I’m eating instead of being ignorant as to how it got to my plate. I should know more about world events and what goes on in other countries, and it’s lead me to writing to our Prime Minister, Stephen Harper. It’s sparked educated discussions with my husband, family and friends. THings I oculd have never talked about before. I would say this is the most awakening, real, and motivating book I’ve ever read. But it does mean taking a look at, and changing, some tough things I’ve accepted about myself for 25 years – celebrity media and start reading the newspaper.
