    One thought on “Beauty Fades, Dumb Is Forever”

    1. While I believe that I personally already got the "gist" of the point that Judge Judy was trying to make, I do believe that this should definitely be a "must read" for girls (and even some older women) who feel that their self worth is based on their looks or how many men they can attract. The truth is clear: Physical beauty is temporary, so you'd better know how to get by in life on more than just a pretty face or a "kickin' bod". Learn to love yourself for who you are, not for what you look li [...]

    2. هذا الكتاب على كل امرأة في الوجود أن تقرأه. من الكتب التي تقرأ باستمتاع بالغ وبامكانه تغيير الكثير من أفكارك. عن نفسي أحببته جدًا. يتحدث الكتاب عن مشاعر المرأة ومكانتها وعن الطريقة التي يجب أن تتعامل معها مع نفسها أولاً ومن ثم مع الآخرين. يأتي الكتاب في عدة فصول يتحدث كل فصل عن [...]

    3. This was just as feisty and funny as the author on her show, Judge Judy. It's about how to be happy, independent and resourceful; speaking up for yourself, instead of trying to please others. The book is full of interesting anecdotes explaining Judy's rise as a lawyer and judge in a male dominated world and how she survived, using her intelligence and humor. It was a story that anyone could appreciate, especially if you've ever tried to succeed.

    4. I've got to be honest: I didn't finish this book, so I don't feel right about giving it a rating. Nevertheless, I'll tell you why I didn't finish it.I love Judge Judy. I just finished reading a book about Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and I was hoping this would be similarly inspiring. My first mistake was in assuming this was a biography. It's not. It's more of a self-help book for young women. There's some good advice in here regarding building confidence, not deferring to men when it comes to decision [...]

    5. I found this in a pile of discarded books at the senior center, so I decided to give it a chance. After a quick read-through, I returned it to the pile. Judge Judy’s recipe for happiness is a sure-fire route to misery: Put yourself first. Make sure nobody ever takes advantage of you. Don’t sacrifice yourself, ever! If you want this philosophy in a nutshell, take the greatest sermon ever given, and turn it on its ear. Don’t go the second mile. Don’t turn the other cheek. Don’t give away [...]

    6. This is quite different than her book I read a few days ago. That one was about the judicial system, and how people manipulate itIS book was, in short, a self-help book. Maybe that's not what it's shelved as, but that's how I took it. Judge Judy lays down her 10 rules women need to follow, and I absolutely agree with them all. The stories she used from her own marriages (all 3 of them - 2 to the same man) were really interesting. She is just a human being, struggling to be happy like we all are. [...]

    7. I am a huge fan of Judge Judy, so when I saw this book on the shelf I just had to have it. It definitely lived up to my expectations, and it was a book i could not put down. In fact I read it all in the first day. It is a very easy read, and Judge Judy has some excellent advice for women out there. Although I think of myself as smart woman, I definitely think I learned from this. Pick this up, you will not be disappointed!

    8. I honestly really enjoyed parts of this book. Judy has some good, straight forward advice for young ladies. However some parts of it felt like it was written by your annoying friend who is purposefully overly brassy and thinks they are hilarious (when they're really eye roll inducing). Ah well. I didn't expect much so I was pleasantly surprised!

    9. قراءة هذا الكتاب واجبة على كل امرأة تسعى لإدراك قيمة ذاتها

    10. I love watching Judge Judy Sheindlin on TV, she just makes me laugh when she is not impressed with a person. The book is good, the circumstances and the advice she gives is quite good.

    11. I'm a big fan of her no-nonsense attitude. I finally decided to read one of her books. This should be a must read for all women. than once!!!!

    12. Obviously if you pick up this book, you must be somewhat of a fan of Judge Judy. I know there are people who either love her brand of honesty or can’t stand it. I happen to be an avid watcher of the show, so you can put me in that camp (although I’m sure that was evident by my choosing to read this book). I was worried that this book would go over the same stories and pieces of advice she doles out in the court room on TV, but luckily that wasn’t the case. Her stories, especially the ones [...]

    13. I am completely biased because I have an unhealthy obsession with Judge Judy because she is perfect in every way and she should definitely be president of the United States, so of course I found this book perfect. The best way to explain it is that she gives such urgency to everything she writes that even when the topic is a total bore, it's exciting, although I think it's probably much more enjoyable from someone who won't relate to the people she scolds. Her goal of this book slaps you in the [...]

    14. One of my vices is Judge Judy. I sit mystified as to how people live their lives. It's like a comedy show. If there was a Judge Judy channel I would tune in is as often as I do HGTV for House Hunters re-runs. I think Judge Judy is on the crass side and I find her an embarrassment at times when she goes too far, but overall she has good points in this book. I was raised by parents who have her mentality: dad paid for my sister and my college educations so we will never have to rely on a man and c [...]

    15. I was browsing in the non-fiction section of my local library when I came across this book, written by none other than Judge Judy. I quite like Judge Judy; I am a fan of her television show, and this book was no disappointment. Beauty Fades, Dumb Is Forever was so her. I also really like the advice she had for women regarding self confidence and not being afraid to be who you are, even if that means you have to stand alone. My favorite part was the last chapter, in which she describes that you c [...]

    16. I love Judge Judy. She gives some pretty good (common sense) advice like: get an education and don't rely on other people to support you forever, 'cause, spoiler alert people die (and your boobs sag eventually); women defer to men and we shouldn't do that (not all women, obviously, but in general); grow a spine.She views men as VERY simple creatures, which is a bit sad and off-putting, and I don't agree with her about everything (see: men), but she's still a cutie pie and she's smart as a whip.

    17. This is Judge Judy's second book and it was written after she started on the TV series. She talks about her marriages and what she has learned in the courtroom about relationship (such as women who fall for men who are just using them). She also talks a lot about responsibility or the lack thereof that she sees (like couples who think having a baby will solve all their problems). It is an interesting read. I'm not sure as an adult that I agree with all of her points but she does make some valid [...]

    18. I'm sure 90% of the women that read this book are going to say that every woman and the significant man in her life should read this book. I am included in that pervcentage. Breaking through the glass ceiling and being successful for a female is, duh, attainable, and certainly not impossible; yet, the themes and struggles and compromises Judy reveals are in my opinion 100% true no matter the woman and her career goal. Even though she is from an older generation, the responsibilities of family li [...]

    19. I bought this book thinking it would be a guilty pleasure book, but it is full of very useful and interesting insights and advice for women. Also lots of little humorous stories and anecdotes. It is really tailored for women, but I think many men would find it equally interesting (and maybe useful).

    20. Really refreshing. Although this book is about 12 years old, not much has changed. Women can still be pushed into the same rolls, the same attitudes as before. This is a must read for all young women. Some might already be working this direction, some might be on there way. Some might have no idea what they are doing to themselves.

    21. While I like Judge Sheindlin's no-nonsense style on TV, and there's plenty of it in this book as well, her view of men seems to me stereotypical (heck, at least I HOPE reality is different -- maybe I'm just an optimist). However, I found a lot of (probably) helpful, keep-in-mind advice in the book, and many of the stories are hilarious.

    22. I love her show and this was a great book. It reads just as she talks on television. It was straight to the point but humorous along the way. Judge Judy wittingly drives home the message to women that we've got to be real, stick up for ourselves, have confidence and self-esteem and don't play into the role of woman that the male society wants us to. I recommend this read to any woman.

    23. I really like Judge Judy.We are same generation and think alike ( a bit old fashioned) on quite a few things. Her book was just about what I expectedd she is a no nonsense woman. Her book is filled with good antidotes and advice for women. I'm torn between a 3 or 4 rating wish I could give it a 3 1/2.

    24. قرأته بامتعاض لأنه غلب في تصويت نادي القراءة، لكنه كان مُتعة حقه في كل قصص القاضية جودي وحياتها الحقيقية جدا. لم يكن كِتاب عن الأمل والدُنيا الوردية، كان عن الحياة. عن الأخطاء والزلات والقاعدة الوحيدة للعيش: يجب أن تؤخذ العلاقات بروح خفيفة مُتقبلة ومُنفتحة.صديقاتي السيدات و [...]

    25. Terrific. A manual for every American professional working woman. Some excellent strategies for how to get ahead in a male dominated work field. Some wonderful thoughts about fashion, makeup clothes, jewelry and hair cuts and men. Couldn't have done a better job writing an advice book for my Boo Baby. What a wonderful father.
