Most women get smart the hard way, through first hand experience, and they have the scars to prove it. Painful memories of sleepless nights, tears, confusion, anger, self-doubt, and anxiety can teach you about life, love, and relationships, but that is a high price to pay for wisdom. There is an easier way for women to get smart -- an easier way to acquire the kind of information needed to handle relationships wisely without having to go through the traumatic events that often accompany the acquisition of such knowledge. How? By listening and learning from the experiences of other women. Wisdom without pain, understanding without heartache, insight without melodrama -- that is what this book is all about. The smartest women know that getting smart doesn't have to hurt.
