‘Everything Is Wrong With You’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Guess what gals: Everything is wrong with you.

That’s the satirical story from Wendy Molyneux, author of Everything Is Wrong With You: The Modern Woman’s Guide to Finding Self Confidence Through Self Loathing (TOW Books), a hilarious parody of the outrageous advice for women in self-help books, magazines, and daytime TV.

Molyneux devilishly addresses women’s insecurities in passages like, “You Look Terrible,” and “How Many Women’s Brains Can Fit In One Man’s Brain,” but Molyneux isn’t totally trashing the tabloids.

She says, “I’m definitely a consumer of this stuff, and a lot of self-help books have a core of truth, but most of it’s pretty hilarious.”

And Molyneux hopes women use her social satire next time a guy gives them grief.

She says, “I like the commercials where it’s like, ‘If you use this tooth whitener, you’ll get a man.’ The real message should be if a guy doesn’t want you because your teeth aren’t perfect, he’s kind of a douchebag.”

Everything Is Wrong With You hits shelves this Friday (Feb. 8).
