"A brilliant, bracing book...The world has changed - a bit - over the past decade and a half, but not enough: this remains essential reading" (Guardian
"Essential reading" (Fay Weldon)
"This is one of the most brilliant books...One doesn't have to agree with every sentence or even every implication of the statements to realise that they revolutionise the discussion of women's magazines and other parts of the ideology about women" (Shere Hite)
"Naomi Wolf's uncompromising, hard-hitting investigation of the coercion of women by the Beauty Myth has the power to changes lives" (Kim Chernin, author of The Obsession and The Hungry Self)
Provocative, punchy and important, this is one of the essential classics of modern feminist literature.
