Review:

“[Savvy Auntie is] an ‘all-inclusive guide’ for what [Notkin] calls PANKs: Professional Aunts No Kids. It’s a rallying girl-call in high chick-lit style: lots of hot pink and cheerful advice.” (New York Times)

“A chic guide for new and experienced aunts that establishes their valuable family role . . . Communal childrearing at its finest.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“You’ll be blown away by Melanie Notkin’s expertise on America’s cool aunts, who are over-loved yet overlooked by marketers. If you want to gain the hearts and dollars of these kid-loving, high-spending women, SAVVY AUNTIE is a must read.” (Mary Lou Quinlan, CEO of Just Ask a Woman, author of What She's Not Telling You)

“Here’s a Jewish mother’s secret: having aunties around to love our kids and give us the support we need is priceless. Melanie’s book honors our sisters and friends and I can’t think of anyone more deserving.” (Jill Zarin, Real Housewife of New York and Co-author, Secrets of a Jewish Mother)

“Savvy Auntie is not only hugely informative, it’s great fun to read. Give it to all to your girlfriends--they’ll thank you, and so will all their lucky nieces and nephews. A great gift for anyone who loves kids.” (Melissa Kirsch, author of The Girl's Guide to Absolutely Everything)

“A joy to read. Savvy Auntie is a fun, comprehensive guide that no Auntie (of any kind) should be without! We can’t wait to buy it for our friends.” ("The Guncles" - Bill Horn & Scout Masterson)

“With this savvy guide, Melanie has changed the way we will begin to look at women and family in America. She’s identified the one thing all women - straight, gay, married, single, or partnered - have in common: an unconditional love for the children in our lives.” (Jenny Stewart -- Entertainment Journalist, Voted "10 Amazing Gay Women in Showbiz")

“[Notkin’s] site and new book are filled with smart, frank advice about being a positive aunt for kids.” (Better Homes and Gardens)

From the Back Cover:

Savvy Auntie is the first go-to source for taking delight in the Savvy Auntie lifestyle, based on the popular website and written by America's foremost expert on modern Aunthood, Melanie Notkin. Whether she's an Auntie by Relation or Auntie by Choice, a Long-Distance Auntie or a Gay Auntie, America's fastest growing segment of women, the PANK (Professional Aunt No Kids), needs guidance and advice when it comes to the kids she adores. Why should their parents know all the secrets?

Savvy Auntie empowers sophisticated, educated, and independent aunts to connect with their inner-Savvy Auntie by sharing everything she needs to know from the minute she discovers her sister or friend is expecting, to confidently lending a hand with a newborn niece or nephew, to keeping up with the walking, talking growing-oh-so-fast bundles of energy, while coping with the occasional meltdown—including her own. Notkin provides a wealth of essential information and insight on child development, health and well-being, and spending 'QualAuntie' time with nieces and nephews. Plus she shares tips for baby showers, baby booty, birthdays and big kids.

Notkin also addresses the ultimate concern for the modern aunt: to have children or not, and if so, how? She offers savvy advice on living life to the fullest no matter the choice or circumstance. Chock full of sidebars, fun facts, and helpful anecdotes from every day Savvy Aunties, Savvy Auntie is the indispensable handbook for Aunties of all ages, and for every single, married or partnered woman navigating the ultimate celebration of life: children.
