This book has some really good ideas for "finding your wild woman" - or really living as your authentic self. There are many "tapes" that we hear in our minds about how we "should" behave and what we "should" do. This book addresses the idea that we need to get back to what we really want to do and who we really are. There are some practical ideas for doing this. Perhaps the most helpful for me is the ideas on really taking care of yourself. As a woman who takes care of everyone else, I often forget to take care of myself.

I did think some of the stories of people who find their wild woman to be a little crazy. I do think that finding your wild woman should not mean hurting other people.

The author also gives a brief autobiographical summary at the conclusion of the book of several well-known women who she considered to be in touch with their wild woman.

Overall I would say it is a worthwhile read.

Leaving this in the teachers' lounge at my school, maybe it will get someone to stand up to our principal. UPDATE: Left it there a week, no one took it, not even the music teacher.
