9780060929916: Beauty Fades, Dumb Is Forever: The Making of a Happy Woman

Judge Judy has heard enough.As a family court judge in New York City and now in her successful TV courtroom show, she has listened to thousands of excuses, complaints, and tales of woe from women of every background, and she's ready to rule. Women, she states with her trademark frankness, need to wise up, stop subjugating who they are, and stop making stupid decisions in the name of love. They hide their talents and opinions so they won't offend. They tiptoe through life letting others take credit for their ideas because they would rather be liked than respected. They spend their lives trying to please everyone but them-selves, and then they wonder why they feel so frustrated and unfulfilled.

Beauty Fades, Dumb Is Forever presents Judge Judy's ten hard and true lessons for happiness:

  1. Beauty fades, dumb is forever.

  2. Don't crawl when you can fly.

  3. What goes up must come down.

  4. Denial is a river in Egypt.

  5. Master the game--then play it.

  6. You're the trunk of the tree.

  7. You can't teach the bull to dance.

  8. Failure doesn't build character.

  9. Letting go is half the fun.

  10. You can be the hero of your own story.

About the Author:

Judge Judy Sheindlin established herself as a tough but fair judge in New York's family court. She is the presiding judge for Judge Judy, a nationally syndicated daily television show based on real court cases, and the author of two best-selling adult books and a children's book. She lives in New York City with her husband, Jerry, a New York Supreme Court Judge. She is the mother of five and a grandmother of four.

From AudioFile:

With the same in-your-face style that has made her television show a hit, "Judge Judy" provides some of her views on the need for women to become self-reliant. Fans of her show will certainly not be surprised by her opinions or manner of presentation. Those who have never heard her will find her to be someone who believes in good humor but does not suffer fools. She draws liberally upon her own experiences as both a family court judge and television judge to illustrate her basic point that women must have their own dreams and not lose themselves in relationships that strip them of their individuality. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
