What's Being Said About The Diva Doctrine?
"Patricia V. Davis is the ultimate diva! Wise and witty, she enlightens the rest of us on how to remain true to ourselves, how to shine in a world that needs her beacons of hope like never before. Every young woman should have a copy of THE DIVA DOCTRINE." ~ New York Times Bestselling Author Brenda Novak
"Davis is like the cool aunt who tells it like it is. With two failed marriages and 50 years of life lessons under her belt, she’s comfortable with her role as a horrible warning rather than a good example." ~ Deseret News
"Ladies, grab your gold hoops, hairspray, little black dress or whatever else it takes to make you feel like a star, and don’t forget your attitude. From Beyoncé to Rachel Berry, America has seen the rise and redefinition of the diva—a new role model for girls and women and a confident go-getter with all the sassy self-assurance of Glee’s Mercedes Jones and the fierceness worthy of Tyra Banks herself." ~ Justine McDaniel, Boho Beat
"A fun and empowering read... This book is absolutely fabulous." ~ The Book Garden
"Any book that helps women feel empowered to be themselves, fully and freely, makes a valuable contribution to our society. Speaking in a language young women can embrace, this book does just that." ~Anita Rufus, J.D., “The Lovable Liberal”, KNews Radio, National Board Member NOW
“'The Diva' is once again dishing out well-seasoned advice, but who better to learn from than someone who unabashedly reveals blundering episodes from her past? While navigating the perils on the way to becoming a confident woman, the examples Davis packs into this book show you what to do and what not to do, with an eye on wisdom.” ~ Lynn Henriksen, The Story Woman, President, Women’s National Book Association–SF
"Davis brings in her own life experiences in a strong, engaging voice that makes you feel like you’ve spent quality time with a warm, compassionate friend." ~ Wendy Nelson Tokunaga, author of Love in Translation and more
“Renaissance woman Patricia V. Davis’s book started out as a blog answer to a 20-something reader from this 50-something writer, and wound up being picked up and reposted hundreds of times. It’s good advice for any woman.
~ Carine Nadel, Orange County Register
“Patricia is a bright light in the San Francisco Bay Area literary scene, a person with talent and energy.”
~ Sam Barry, Author, How to Play the Harmonica: and Other Life Lessons and member of The Rock Bottom Remainders
