Book Description

'A woman is like a teabag - only when in hot water do you realise how strong she is' - Nancy Reagan

Women are never at a loss to express themselves, and smart women will have something to say for every occasion.

Wise Women is a hilarious, ribald and revealing collection of observations and inspirational quotations reflecting the wit and intelligence of women across the ages. Those quoted range from Dorothy Parker to Joan Rivers, Mae West to Joan Collins, Queen Victoria to Princess Diana, Joanna Lumley to Pamela Stephenson, Beyoncé to Adele, and Cheryl Cole to Lady Gaga.

The famous and infamous of theatre, film, politics, philosophy and literature are featured, waxing lyrical on numerous topics from affairs, ageing, men and motherhood to sex, work and what women want!

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of 7.12 28 Mar 2013
By Peter
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very good female friend wanted to try out my Kindle with the view to purchasing her own.
Not liking my choice of books we purchased the above book.
within about 20 pages she declared "Total Rubbish"!
I can't say it's my cup of tea either.
But she did like the Kindle.
