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.

Here’s some photos of me with  several of the Miss Americas I interviewed for Pretty Smart: Lessons from our Miss Americas.  We’re at the glamourous Evening of Dreams Gala at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas the night before the January 24th Miss America Pageant.  I’ll be posting more photos of Miss America and me over the next couple of weeks as well as photos of so many of the people who bought copies of Pretty Smart!
