Editorial Reviews

Most knowledge, especially concerning relationships, comes from trial and error and the failures, although instructive, can be devastatingly painful. So why not learn from others' mistakes and advice? This audiobook is a compendium of knowledge, full of smart women who’ve made mistakes in life, love, and relationships and become more powerful for it. Performed by Rosemary Benson in a tone that feels like a confiding and reassuring friend, someone who’s been there and wants to empower others, this is an easy listen but chockfull of pearls of wisdom that smart women will relate to and learn from.

I really enjoyed this audiobook. It clear, concise and went right to the matter - elimated the endless psycho-babble common in these types of books.

EXCELLENT READ!

If you could sum up What Smart Women Know in three words, what would they be?

What I love about this book is that it does not encourage games to land a guy. Its an honest book that basically says "look if it isn't going right and you are constantly over worrying about your relationship do yourself and him a favor, value yourself and move on." I highly recommend this book

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes I listened to it in a day
