“Funny, smart, and compulsively likeable, Anna David is this decade’s answer to Carrie Bradshaw. There won’t be a single second you won’t root for her as she bravely tries to answer the resonating question: how can I be my best self?”
—Allison Winn Scotch, New York Times bestselling author of The Department of Lost and Found
The sex-and-relationship expert on G4’s Attack of the Show, author of Party Girl and Bought, and the editor of Reality Matters, Anna David is smart, successful, and single. Falling for Me is Anna’s provocative, eye-opening, and inspiring chronicle of the year she changed her life by following the advice of Cosmopolitan Magazine guru Helen Gurley Brown in her classic Sex and the Single Girl. Anna’s story of “How I Hung Curtains, Learned to Cook, Traveled to Seville, and Fell in Love”—and her determination to either find “the one” or accept once and for all that it’s not in the cards—is touching and transformative, exhilarating and uplifting, and belongs on every bookshelf next to Eat, Pray, Love and The Happiness Project.
Like most women, whether they’ve chosen the Fortune 500 career path or have had five kids by 35, Anna David wondered if she’d made the right choices. Then she came upon the book Sex and the Single Girl by Helen Gurley Brown, Cosmopolitan’s fearless leader from the mid-sixties to the late nineties. Immediately connecting with Gurley Brown’s unique message of self-empowerment combined with femininity, Anna vowed to use Sex as a lesson plan, venturing out of her comfort zone in the hope of overcoming the fears and insecurities that had haunted her for years. Embarking on a journey both intensely personal and undeniably universal, she becomes adventurous and spontaneous—reviving her wardrobe and apartment, taking French lessons, dashing off to Seville, and whiling nights away with men she never would have considered before. In the process, she ends up meeting the person really worth changing for: herself.
