Reviews

In her experience as a woman, a mother, a lawyer, a family court judge, and a TV personality, Judge Judy Sheindlin (Don't Pee on My Leg and Tell Me It's Raining, HarperCollins, 1996) has learned a thing or two about human behavior. Here, she discusses how women can be successful, happy, and fulfilled by taking control of their lives. Sheindlin illustrates her points with stories from court cases she's seen and her own life. Known for her no-nonsense attitude, she spares no one, not even herself, from scrutiny. She's articulate and witty, and she uses humor well, both encouraging people to laugh at themselves and keeping her tone from being too preachy. This should prove popular with fans of Judge Judy. An excellent choice for self-help collections.ÄAdrienne Furness, Lockport P.L., NY

"Judge Judy rules."-- "Entertainment Weekly""Judge Judy takes on stupidity. Offering advice to women seeking to build a strong foundation for their lives, Steindlin combines her experiences as Family Court judge, wife and grandmother. She clues women in on how to keep their individuality and nourish their strengths."-- "New York Daily News""This book resonates with the voice of Judge Sheindlin.... It is instructional, motivational and full of practical advice.... She empowers through the can-do energy."-- "New York Law Journal""[Sheindlin is] part Harry Truman, part Rhea Perlman: funny, quick-tempered, bluntly honest."-- "People""The reigning queen of small-screen justice."-- "Family Cicle""Sheindlin writes with the same theatrical no-nonsense directness that animates her on-air perssona."-- "Publishers Weekly"

Autobiography and self-help collide in Sheindlin's latest book (after Don't Pee on My Leg and Tell Me It's Raining). Known to millions because of her TV program, Judge Judy, Sheindlin writes with the same theatrical no-nonsense directness that animates her on-air persona. Her theme is stated best in the title, which is just the first of many declarative chestnuts. Aimed at women trying to make it in male-dominated workplaces and traditional marriages, the book is broken into chapters that expound on basic principles illustrated with one or two examples from Sheindlin's long career (Revlon, Manhattan Family Court, network television). There's a slew of surprisingly personal recollections about her own marriages, husbands and divorces. The forthright self-revelations reveal an unusual person with, apparently, no conception of being eccentric. Conventional statements ("I believe that one determined, skilled person can do just about anything") have surprising conclusions: "That's why I keep a Hoover File, as in J. Edgar." Sheindlin unself-consciously goes on to describe how she used her Hoover File to ensure her reappointment to the bench. There are several such gems, all of which will be enjoyed by Judge Judy watchers. Sheindlin's voice comes through with amazing clarity: fans of her show will hear it as they read. (Feb.)
