Good girls go to heaven. Bad girls go everywhere. --Helen Gurley Brown

Dainty, delicate, and demure be damned; today's women are bold, brash, and brazen and aren't above praising all their wicked habits. Good Girls Finish Last is a treasury of riotous remarks on bad behavior from some of the sharpest, funniest women of our time. From sex and swearing to shopping and gossiping, readers will be inspired to reach for bold new lows of unseemly behavior or be reassured by the very impressive company they're in.

Sometimes you have to be a bitch to get things done. --Madonna

I want a man who's kind and understanding. Is that too much to ask of a millionaire? --Zsa Zsa Gabor

Shopping is better than sex. If you're not satisfied after shopping, you can make an exchange for something you really like. --Adrienne E. Gusoff

Illustrated with entertaining retro photos of women misbehaving, Good Girls Finish Last is a refreshing break from our taxing world of political correctness and self-improvement. It's conveniently sorted according to vice and all the best bad habits are included: smoking, drinking, shopping, greed, lust, arrogance, laziness, bad housekeeping, vanity, gluttony, profanity, gossip, and female chauvinism.

Timeless greats such as Dorothy Parker and Mae West are represented along with contemporary personalities like Oprah Winfrey, Tina Fey, and Megan Mullally. Pop-culture sources like Sex and the City and Bridget Jones's Diary also contribute to the breadth of topics and depth of humor in Good Girls Finish Last, which will appeal to any woman, good or bad!
