Publisher's Summary

In Sex and the Married Girl, Mandi Norwood speaks to a new generation of married women who crave independence and adventure just as much as they crave commitment. Like a great girls' night out, this smart, sexy, candid guide reveals married girls' most intimate confessions from over 100 in-depth interviews.

Sometimes hilarious, often tender, and always empowering, Mandi Norwood delivers from-the-heart, savvy, and practical advice about every aspect of modern marriage from power, controlling money, omigod-the-mother-in-law, to brazen behavior in bed.

    "Don't waste your time."

    This is the kind of whining that gives feminists a bad name. From I hate my mother TO I hate my father TO all men are pigs, I couldn't get past the first 4 hours. I tried and tried, but finally gave up and quit.

    The author stereotypes women and speaks as if she represents us all. Her study group is but a small segment of the female population. I'm a professionally successful, happily married, childless woman much like many of the woman she writes about, but I found this book offensive.

    "10 hours of her personal philosophy of marriage"

    If you?re a university educated, upper-class, non-religious professional woman living in a very large urban area in the industrialized world, you may well think this book is really smart. Otherwise, you?ll find it irritating. The author extensively elaborates on a variety of self help platitudes, apparently believing them to be startling new insights. Her research method involves substantiating her own observations on marriage (who cares?) by quoting the people she interviewed. Who her informants were demographically, how many there were, and how they were selected is never explained, undoubtedly because there was, in fact, no particular basis for their selection. Their views are never tabulated, aggregated or numerically described. We just hear from them when she wants to substantiate here own prejudices. She ignores a multitude of serious sociological studies on married women and sex and instead cites authorities such as Cosmopolitan surveys, the Wall Street Journal, ecrush.com, etc. She literally praises selfishness and arrogance. Wouldn?t have want her for my neighbor in New Orleans after Katrina. She would have tried to bump me off the bus. Hopefully she does not practice what she preaches in her own marriage. Bottom line ? save your money.

    "Misleading title and a lot of male bashing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    To be honest about the title. As a male, I'm interested in the evolving attitudes toward sex by women, but this is mindless male bashing. She has the worldly understanding and compassion of Rush Limbaugh and is fair and as balanced as Fox news. Don't waste your time.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mandi Norwood again?

    Never


    What aspect of Mandi Norwood’s performance would you have changed?

    I would have liked a discussion, but instead got an amped up bashing of men.


    What character would you cut from Sex and the Married Girl?

    Mandi
