Monster Lies: A Woman's Guide to Controlling Her Destiny

Sally Franz, Author, Jennifer Webb, Joint Author, Linda Bloodworth Thomason, Foreword by Beagle Bay Books $25 (323p) ISBN 978-0-9679591-6-0
Arguing that many self-help books ""promise you the world, but seem short on reality,"" motivational speakers Sally Franz and Jennifer Webb have written Monster Lies: A Woman's Guide to Controlling Her Destiny, a succinct manual for making immediate life changes. The authors debunk common pitfalls people encounter when they attempt to change their lives (e.g., fearing that no matter how hard one tries, things will end badly; belittling oneself for not being perfect; trusting ""experts"" rather than going with a gut instinct) and explain how to toss these inhibitions to work toward personal success. Exercises and chapter summaries make this an easy-to-follow, helpful handbook. (July)
