Simple & informative - I loved it!

What did you love best about What Smart Women Know?

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.

What did you like best about this story?

Simple

What about Rosemary Benson’s performance did you like?

She is a wonderful narrator with great voice inflections based on book content.

Great Advice and Entertaining

This is not your typical self help book. It was fun to listen to and had great examples of real-life situations. The message and delivery was awesome!

yes you will see yourself, your friend, your mother, your daughter, your sister in this book somewhere. Luckily, as smart women, we can do a preemptive strike. And this book is the manifesto.

Published in 2012 but written 1912

This book sets women’s rights back by centuries. I’m pretty sure even incels would find some of the content here offensive. Men’s first date red flags: doesn’t reach for the bill fast enough, changes tables, asks for clean silverware/dishes, has food allergies, talks about himself, doesn’t talk about himself…seriously? Who came up with this stuff?

Outdated

Very outdated. Not for today’s world. I felt like I was sitting in a proper women’s manners class.

Repetitive 💁‍♂️ and very superficial

I wish she didn't repeat the phrase ”smart women know” a thousand times.
It could be useful though

Terrible

Tiny bit of story then goes into lists of what a "good" guy is and what a " and what a good" guy isn't. I couldn't get through it.
