More About Tripping the Prom Queen by Susan Shapiro Barash
 
 
 
Overview
"Tripping the Prom Queen" is a groundbreaking investigation into the dark secret of female friendship: rivalry.
Susan Shapiro Barash has exploded the myth that women help one another, are supportive of one another, and want each other to succeed. Based on interviews with women across a broad social spectrum, she has discovered that the competition between women is more vicious precisely because it is covert. She tells us:
* Why women can't and won't admit to rivalry.* How women are trained from an early age to compete with one another.* In which areas women most heatedly compete.* How rivalry is different among women than among men.* The differences between competition, envy, and jealousy.* When competition is healthy and when it isn't.
* Why women find it irresistible to "trip the prom queen."* Useful strategies to stop the competition and forge a new kind of relationship with other women.Whether you've tripped the prom queen or been tripped yourself, you will discover an engrossing exploration of this female phenomenon, as well as a beacon of hope for better, more fulfilling relationships.
