About this title

Synopsis:

For a decade, Amy Dickinson has been the "Chicago Tribune"'s signature general advice columnist, helping readers with questions both personal and pressing. Her column is syndicated in over 150 newspapers nationally and internationally, and "Ask Amy: Advice for Better Living" is the very first collection of her daily columns, which are read by an estimated 22 million people. Featuring over 200 question-and-answer columns taken from 2011-2013, this book is filled with warm, witty, and insightful advice. After taking over for the legendary advice columnist Ann Landers in 2003, Dickinson charmed her way into readers' lives with her sensible takes on etiquette, relationships, and the gray areas of day-to-day life. Her wry humor and practical wisdom comes through in her eloquently crafted tips on problems both personal and professional. Broken down into distinct categories, Dickinson tackles issues ranging from marital to financial, familial to romantic. Having trouble with in-laws, online platforms, or a pesky sibling? Dickinson has answers for those questions and more. She's not one to mince words, and faces the problems head-on with honest and thoughtful advice. "Ask Amy: Advice for Better Living" is a great collection to have on hand, written in the tone of a best friend who gives the hard truth and a comforting hand in troubled times.

Review:

Praise for Amy Dickinson and her memoir, The Mighty Queens of Freeville:

"Perhaps Dickinson's greatest natural asset is the ability to draw people's problems out of them, even in real life—not feeding on these people as if she were drawing strength from their misery but, rather, responding to them with empathy and warmth and understanding." —The Atlantic

"Dickinson quickly charmed legions of fans with her unabashed candor, tension-diffusing wit, and astute reasoning." —Booklist

"Dickinson writes with an honesty that is at once folksy and intelligent." —Publishers Weekly

"Smart, humorous, common-sensical...a passionate proponent of small-town American values." —Washington Post

"A woman who understands the power of defusing pain with humor. Which just might be the best advice there is." —People magazine
