    This book was well written and easy to read. I agreed with her on some thoughts and not on others. I enjoyed her take on Money the most and marriage the most. Had a number of take home points.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I started reading it with a negative attitude for some reason (classic case of judging a book by its cover-because of the title, I expected a rip-off of Maya Angelou's Letter to my daughter), but page by page, my attitude shifted. Joan is very original and authentic. It's the raw truth of Joan's words, the experiences you can relate to, the radicalism and revolutionary way in which she thinks that got to me. Ever mother should read this book. Every woman I was pleasantly surprised by this book.

    This is your big sister guide to specific aspects of a woman's world. Her writing is simple and she goes straight to the point. There are instances where I flinch because I do not agree with a concept she is proffering but I have to accept that it is her opinion shaped by her experiences. I guarantee that most of the women who will read this will not be learning anything new.You will be reaffirming what you know and don't want to confront or accept or on the positive side, already know and have This is your big sister guide to specific aspects of a woman's world.

    "Marry a man who makes you feel good about yourself" "Don't,just, don't stay for the children" "Make sure you flaunt your femininity" I loved this book. Few things I did not agree with but I nodded my head most times and had a smile at the end of each section. This is a good book for any woman to read.

    The writing is simple and easy to read. She makes some valid points about womanhood, motherhood and relationships. Some however I do not entirely agree with. Nothing you probably haven't heard before but still makes a good read. The writing is simple and easy to read. She makes some valid points about womanhood, motherhood and relationships.

    I loved this book. This is a book I would recommend to everyone be it male or female. It contains some hard truths that not many people are willing to agree with but it's fine and fun. It's an easy read as well. I loved this book. This is a book I would recommend to everyone be it male or female.

    More like 4.5 stars. I enjoyed reading and loved how the author is raw in her writing. Most of the lessons are the ones learnt through life experience and any woman on the other side of 25 can easily relate with. The author being Kenyan, I very much resonated with it.

    It’s a simple read. The book attempts to guide women on various issues while considering the changes that have come about in the 21st century. Some chapters serve as good reminders. Some seemed contradicting. And I found it difficult to agree with some of her ideals.

    It pretty much talks about things that we as women already know but refuse to admit to ourselves. The tone of the book is direct and assertive. A refreshing read.

    This was my first book by this author. Before this I had never heard of her. I enjoyed reading the book, I could easily relate to some of the things she talked about while some things had me rolling my eyes as they were generalizations of women's experiences, needs, wants & ambitions especially on love and relationships. I understand that this was written from a personal experience but there are statements like "All women" which is not right when telling a story from one's personal experience.

    The book doesn't say anything new. And it could say it a bit better. But it's relevant. The book doesn't say anything new. And it could say it a bit better. But it's relevant.

    As cliche as it might sound, I was never really into women liberation so me reading this book without the 'eye rolling' was a significant step. It was a good book and I cannot wait to pass it on to my sisters and 'daughter'.
