"Secrets of a Jewish Mother" shows readers that being clear about what you want is the best policy, and standing up for yourself and your family is always the right way to go. Using real life examples, stories from Jill, Lisa and Gloria, this mother/daughter trio reveals their secrets to life, love, and happiness. Some of their Jewish Mother tips include: - Dating: "A good man is hard to find, but so is a good woman. Don't settle for less than you deserve." - Parenting: "Fair is not always equal; equal is not always fair." - Family: "Bar mitzvahs and weddings: The grudge starts here." - Money: "Don't wait 'til you're dead to give it away." - The cliches that matter: "Bring a gift." And, remember, a lot of love and a little matzoh ball soup never hurt anyone.
