I'm Wild Again: Snippets From My Life
and a Few Brazen Thoughts

By Helen Gurley Brown
(St. Martin's Press, 287 pages, $24.95)

Twenty-five years ago when I wrote for Cosmopolitan, I was lunching with one of the editors when the conversation turned to the enigma that was Helen Gurley Brown. "I guess we'll have to wait for her autobiography," I said.

The editor shook her head. "Helen will never open up."

She was right. Brown's new book, far from being the tell-all of its advance publicity, is exactly what the subtitle says it is: snippets from a life, some of them taken almost verbatim from her earlier books, which in turn were variations on the theme of her first book, Sex and the Single Girl, the 1962 self-help land mine that gave her her start.
