masthead_021Google Alerts picked up a nice new review of BLONDES today in the Galveston County Daily News. At least some Texans might prefer blondes.

logoYes, I’m surprised by the source, but I love any good review. The book reviewer, Pia Catton, kindly said that Do Gentlemen Really Prefer Blondes? is an…”informative and amusing book…The short answers are judiciously packed with information culled from hundreds of peer-reviewed studies. All of it is relayed in a light, engaging tone…” Very cute that she noted I’m a brunette and called me traitorous. Nice birthday gift.

An AP book review for “Blondes!”

An Associated Press writer, Dinesh Ramde, wrote a review for Do Gentlemen Really Prefer Blondes? titled “Author reviews odd research into the science of love.” He clearly finds the book quirky compared to others on sex and love, but says many kind things: that it’s well-researched, that I’ve simplified the science for a broader audience, and that even though the book is targeted at women, there’s plenty of content for both genders. Best of all, he says the book is likely to prompt conversations that start with “Hey, have you ever wondered why people…’, labels it “a cross between Cosmopolitan and Scientific American,” and an “insightful and amusing read.”

Is there anything I wouldn’t do for this book? I can’t bear to watch myself on TV — nor would I wish for any friends to see this — but, for the sake of getting word out, I dare link to this segment on Fox 5.

And there’s the cute review from the Daily News. Just a little hyperbole about thick waists in hard economic times, but I love the enthusiasm.

review in Library Journal!

Last week, the book got a starred review in Publishers Weekly. This week, a very nice review in Library Journal — the reviewer agreeing with the book’s premise that “it becomes obvious that we are aware of only a small part of what drives our choices when it comes to choosing whom to marry or with whom we have a sexual relationship,” and describing the text as “well-written, entertaining, and easy-to-understand.”

“Blondes” got a starred review in Publishers Weekly — a great honor!  I’m grateful to the anonymous reviewer who said the book is “playfully written,” and apparently thought it was intriguing/unique enough to flag.
