Empower yourself and the latest generation of girls with this collection of inspiring reflections from notable, highly accomplished women in politics, academia, athletics, the arts, and business, including Madeleine Albright, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and more. In What I Told My Daughter, a powerful, diverse group of women reflect on the best advice and counsel they have given their daughters either by example, throughout their lives, or in character-building, teachable moments between parent and child. A college president teachers her daughter, by example, the importance of being a leader who connects with everyone—from the ground up, literally—in an organization. One of the country’s only female police chiefs teaches her daughter the meaning of courage, how to respond to danger but more importantly how not to let fear stop her from experiencing all that life has to offer. A bestselling writer, who has deliberated for years on empowering girls, wonders if we’re unintentionally leading them to believe they can never make mistakes, when “resiliency is more important than perfection.” In a time when childhood seems at once more fraught and more precious than ever, What I Told My Daughter is a book anyone who wishes to connect with a young girl cannot afford to miss.

This book is about a mother’s account of her daughter telling lies. This book discusses the lies told by a daughter from the time she could talk until her adulthood. The daughter does not tell little white lies, but lies that are hurtful and quite colorful in nature. The mother can’t even fathom how the daughter comes up with such creative lies. Mom’s advice to all children is not to lie. When a child needs someone to believe him or her after he or she has continuously lied, he or she will find out that his or her credibility is nonexistent.
A warm and witty memoir of motherhood (or what you meant to say but were too busy parenting ...) Every middle-aged woman wants to say in a firm, clear, loving voice to every young woman: 'I have been you. But you haven't been me, yet ... You should listen.' Liberated from the daily minutiae when her daughter left home, Michele A'Court suddenly found the time she'd never had as a parent -- to think about being a parent. Mostly, she spent the time wondering if she'd told her daughter everything she needed to know -- such as how to store ginger, get rid of bloodstains, calculate GST, stop your tights snagging, the meaning of feminism ... that sort of thing. So she began to make a list. The list became a hit solo comedy show. And then the list kept getting longer. So now it has become a book. A funny, wise, honest and maybe even useful book. Turns out I raised a determined young woman with her own very clear ideas about how to live her life. Who saw that coming? I blame the mother.
Humorous and witty, light and scarily dark, this book takes you on romp through the drug filled, criminal, artistic adventuresome thirteen years that incorporate the famous "sixties" of a scamp, artist, seeker of truth and drop dead junkie whose social mobility has him hanging out with gangsters, famous artists, diplobrats, a gamut of human experience more the entertaining because it's entirely true.
This book explores the beauty and purpose of the design and patterns of our universe. It pulls together what we have learned from science, ethics, religion, history, and living to present a unified spiritual world view that is a very significant and positive statement about who we are.
