About the Book
In the New York Times bestseller THINK, Lisa Bloom describes the stark paradoxes that American girls and women are living today, such as excelling in education at every level, yet obsessing over celebrity lifestyles and tabloid media, and outperforming our male counterparts in employment, yet electing expensive, life-endangering plastic surgery in record-breaking numbers. These facts have left Bloom wondering: How did we here and --- more importantly --- what can we do about it? Bloom’s solution involves one word: THINK.
In this provocative, entertaining, educational, and thoroughly-researched book, Bloom outlines the ways that we as a society, and particularly women, have fallen off the intellectual path, and illuminates specific steps to reclaiming our brains, regaining focus, and taking charge of our lives. Packed with compelling and revelatory points, THINK is delivered in a no-nonsense, straight-talk manner that will make you laugh, squirm, question yourself --- and most importantly --- make you start thinking again.
