Men are stupid ... and they like big boobs : a woman's guide to beauty through plastic surgery by Joan Rivers( Book )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 811 libraries worldwide
Joan Rivers is one of the few celebrities unafraid to admit what she's "had done" to keep looking so great. Now, she gives women straight-talking advice on better living through looking better. Informed by the country's top plastic surgeons, she takes the mystery out of cosmetic surgery, taking you step-by-step through the entire process, from finding the right doctor to the bruising truth about recovery and the facts about cosmetic surgery's very real risks. But don't worry--there's dish, too. This book is rife with Hollywood gossip about who's done what and how often--and is filled with Rivers's personal anecdotes about life under the knife. This is a funny, frank, and genuinely passionate argument for a woman's right to do whatever it takes to be beautiful, to feel better about herself, and be happy.--From publisher description

"Once a month, four New York City moms forget about shaky marriages, rebellious children, and rocky careers--and place a bet on friendship. Besides the fact that their kids all attend the same fashionable Brooklyn Heights private school, Bess, Robin, Carla, and Alicia have little in common. Thrown together on the tony school's Diversity Committee, the women impulsively turn their awkward first meeting into a boisterous game of poker. Instead of betting with chips or pocket change, however, they play for intimate secrets about their lives. Soon enough, virtual strangers are transformed into close confidantes. As the Diversity Commitee meetings become a highly anticipated monthly ritual, the new friends reveal more with each game. Appearances deceive. Picture-perfect housewife Bess struggles to relate to her surly teenage daughter and judgmental mother. Robin, a bohemian single mom, grapples with the truth concerning her child's real father. Carla, an ambitious African American doctor, attempts to balance the colossal demands of her family with her dream of owning her own private practice. And to distract herself from her troubled marriage, shy copywriter Alicia fantasizes about an attractive younger colleague. Putting all their cards on the table, the four women grow to rely on one another, bracing for one final showdown"--
