Book Review: Cherry Bomb

You might have read about Cherry Bomb: The Ultimate Guide to Becoming a Better Flirt, a Tougher Chick, and a Hotter Girlfriend--and to Living Life Like a Rock Star in this month's Fashion Rocks magazine. I was given a copy, and I can tell you that I sat down and devoured the entire thing in less than two days.

Mostly, I found it fun and entertaining. Interspersed between truly useful tips (creating an updo, getting that smokey eye) are entertaining tips, funny pointers on getting backstage, and how to play drums.

Best of all, there are essays by Betsey Johnson on personal style, Anna Sui on fashion inspiration, Dita Von Teese on performing your own strip tease, and dating advice from Terri Nunn (of Berlin fame - love her).

This isn't a definitive manual on changing your life, but it does have some fun ways to shake things up a bit. I didn't find anything in it shocking, but those who walk the conservative side of life might want to give this one a pass. The rest of you, well, have fun with it!
