The Book that Birthed the Sexual Revolution
This is pre-feminist empowerment, and is an absolute hoot to listen to. "I think the single woman's biggest problem are the people who are trying to marry her off." Gurley Brown declares in the intro, and from there on in it's clever and entertaining advice for single women of the Sixties. Some of it is absolutely applicable today, the importance of financial independence, why it's good to be worldy and intelligent, why sex is a basic right for single women. It also works as a sociological time capsule, a look into pre-2nd wave feminist society.
It's like spending time with your uber-cougar man-eater grandma. Wildly entertaining. She makes singledom sound like so much fun!

Oldie but goodie
I liked the book. Some of the stuff was super old school but a lot of it is still relevant today. The narrator did a wonderful job.
