Still provocative after all these years, Helen Gurley Brown celebrates the pleasures of flirting, of enjoying affairs from beginning to end, throwing brunches and dinner parties, finding men where you might not think to look, dating (and ditching) married men, and being both feminine and powerful.
"The Book that Birthed the Sexual Revolution"
.She's one of the most successful women in America, and now you can sit down and listen to her best advice, in her own voice - as if she were you best friend sharing a cup of coffee and telling all her secrets. Best-selling author and editor of Cosmopolitan magazine, Helen Gurley Brown has become model for women who won't settle for less than the best in their lives.
Part advice manual and part memoir, The Late Show is truly an hysterical yet insightful guide to growing old, presented in candid, unyielding and often comedic form by Helen Gurley Brown. Ms. Brown selects topics that range from emotional security, marriage, money, sex, beauty, exercise, health, and work and explains her philosophy and shares personal experiences and as do several of her friends, including Diane von Furstenberg, Raquel Welch and Ali McGraw. Brown's honest and provocative views reflect those of the era in which she thrived as a pioneer of the sexual revolution. Although her death in 2013 may have marked the end of that era, she has left us this personal opus to memorialize a pop-culture lifestyle that may soon be no more than extinct.
