In this deeply personal collection of essays, creator of the The Conversation Amanda de Cadenet shares the hard-won advice and practical insights she´s gained through her experiences as a businesswoman, friend, wife, and mother. Amanda is on a mission to facilitate conversations that allow all women to be seen, heard, and understood. Through her multimedia platform The Conversation, she interviews some of today´s most badass women - from Hillary Clinton to Lady Gaga - in no-holds-barred conversations that get to the heart of what means to be female. Now, in It´s Messy, Amanda offers listeners an extension of that conversation, inviting them into her life and sharing her own story. From childhood fame to a high-profile marriage (and divorce) to teen motherhood to the sexism that threatened to end her career before it started, Amanda shares the good, the bad, and the messy of her life, synthesizing lessons she´s learned along the way. Through it all, she offers an original perspective as a feminist on the front lines of celebrity culture. Edgy, irreverent, poignant, and provocative, It´s Messy addresses the issues, concerns, and experiences relevant to women today. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Amanda de Cadenet.

If you´re looking to get married and you´re not, there´s most likely a very good reason: you. Not that you´re a bad person - you´re certainly not! It´s just that you haven´t yet become the woman you need to be in order to have the partnership you want. So how can you grow into someone who is ready to say ´´I do´´ and to attract the same in a mate? You start with this book. Based on her wildly popular Huffington Post article - one of the site´s most-viewed of all time - Why You´re Not Married . . . Yet dishes out straightforward, no-holds-barred practical and proven advice for women hoping to head down the aisle or just have a great relationship. With sisterly insight, razor-sharp wit, and refreshing candor, McMillan points out the things that might be in your blind spot: unhelpful attitudes, behaviors, and beliefs so easy to identify in others, but much more difficult to see in yourself. Then she shows you how to adjust them to get the relationship you deserve. Like a no-nonsense but loving best friend, McMillan meets you right where you are to help you get where you´re going - with clarity and honesty. And she´ll make you laugh out loud along the way. More than just a relationship manual, Why You´re Not Married . . . Yet will help you diagnose what´s preventing you from getting what you want. Do any of these chapter headings sound familiar? You´re a Bitch: How defensiveness and anger can hide behind a tough, take-charge exterior, and why being nice is never a sign of weakness. You´re a Liar: How to stop lying to men - and get honest with yourself - about the kind of relationship you really want. It´s the only way. You´re Shallow: Being a woman who insists on a tall guy is no different from being a man who demands big boobs. Learn why you should let go of trying to get what you think you should have and focus on getting what you need. You´re Selfish:... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tracy McMillan.
