I’ve started getting feedback from all the folks who have read Pretty Smart: Lessons from our Miss Americas.  Here are some of their comments.

“I just received “Pretty Smart”, your very impressive book.  How grateful I am for all the time and effort you have given for something good and positive.”  Jean Bartel, Miss America 1943.
