"Informative and funny ... With each entry, Rinth ponders some new idea and grounds her opinions with research." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The author is able to bare herself figuratively and, as the title suggests, literally. In one section, she confesses to being given a post-hypnotic suggestion while watching a YouTube video. Preparing for a visit home, she hopes her mother will not notice her new 'tramp stamp' ... All of the essays have a moral, delivered with charismatic tongue-in-cheek humor." --Kirkus Reviews

"Clever and well-written ... a revealing treatise on life as seen by one sharp young woman who has the potential to make a mark on her generation." -- ForeWord Reviews

"Rinth was witty and funny ... [and] had some wise advice to give. What she writes is an opinion that doesn't shove it in your face. She casually prods you to contemplate the issue, even if you don't agree with her. I've been very happy with this book and would recommend it as a short, fun read!" --Rainy Day Reads: A College Student's Book Reviews

Why do atheists love breasts? Why should you never have sex in a graveyard? Is "Gossip Girl's" Blake Lively fat or just curvy? Where do human rights come from? Who is crazier, Michele Bachmann or Lindsay Lohan? Can you publish a book that mixes sex, politics, study tips, philosophy, hypnotism, neuroscience, and really awful poetry?

And can you use an expensive scientific calculator for pleasures more physical than educational?

Those are questions that all serious people avoid. But they obsess Rinth de Shadley, who graduated from a top-tier women's college.

She hopes that you read this book. And that her mother doesn't.
