How to be a more interesting woman

How to be a more interesting woman
Wedgwood
1965

Ladies, here is your chance to shed your boring personality.  Learn to speak “properly” with a variety of conversation topics. Don’t be too aggressive and attempt to share your personal opinions. (Men don’t really like that.) I am really going to work on my lady skills with this nice book. I’m already halfway there since an interesting woman evidently hangs out in the library.

Mission Possible!

Peter Lupus’ Guide to Radiant Health and Beauty:
Mission Possible for Women
Lupus and Homola
1978

I think every guy wants a cadre of superstars surrounding him. This particular guy was a supporting actor on the old Mission Impossible series back in the day.  He has all the answers to your beauty and health needs. Also, he will dress in some pretty groovy outfits and go to the gym with you.

I can’t wait to try some “sex-a-tonic” exercises. It’s your mission now. As usual, ALB will disavow any knowledge of your actions.

Advice from Zsa Zsa

Zsa Zsa Gabor - cover

How to Catch a Man
How to Keep a Man
How to Get Rid of a Man
Gabor
1970

Youngsters, you probably don’t remember the Gabor sisters. They were kind of like proto-Kardashians. Zsa Zsa and her sister Eva were Hollywood glitterati from the old days. Both sisters racked up quite a few husbands and had minor acting credits. (Eva, probably the best known from the show Green Acres, and both showed up on the old Hollywood Squares occasionally.) Zsa Zsa gives all her womanly advice in this rather uninteresting book of quotes. I get the feeling this was more publicity stunt than actual book. She even states on the inside flap that the advice is “inconsistent” and “not logical.” No argument here.

Excuse me while I retrieve my feather boa from the dry cleaner.
