"The only thing you should be faking is confidence." Patricia V. Davis posted that piece of advice along with several others in the hopes that they'd help one of her 20-something readers save the precious time she was wasting by torturing herself needlessly, something too many young women do.

That massive response led to the creation of the inspirational, yet witty and down-to-earth book, The Diva Doctrine: 16 Universal Principles Every Woman Needs to Know. It's the antidote to youth being "wasted on the young".
