Unleash Your Inner Siren and Mesmerize Men
with Help from Some of the Most Famous
and Infamous Women in History
We all know them: the women who light up a room when they enter, and have men hanging on their every word. The secret of these “Sirens” is more than good looks—though that of course helps. It’s more important to follow your passions, play up your talents, and learn to live as fearlessly as any of the great adventurers in history. Every woman has got what it takes to be a Siren. The trick is realizing just what kind of Siren you are and working it confidently. (See Your Siren Type)
"White's ravishing recap of the world's heartbreakers provides portraits of women who knew how to work it (and a few who are still at it), breaking down their immortal charms into imitable archetypes...dashing, fun and informative, the book is a spirit-lifting tonic for any woman with a case of the gravity blahs."

Books of Style
“Open this book and enter the pantheon of sirens, a crash course in femme fatale-ism. The faculty is handpicked by Ellen White, who sees the divine in all women and not all of them require stilettos to make a deep impression in the wet cement of the male psyche.”
The Bombshell Manual of Style
Within the pages of Simply Irresistible, the collective wisdom of some of the great sirens of history—among them, Eva Peron, Greta Garbo, Coco Chanel, Nigella Lawson, Angelina Jolie, Edith Piaf, Mata Hari, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis—has been distilled to its essence, and embellished with homespun lore (see the Gallery of Sirens). Maybe you’ll borrow a page, a chapter, or a few of these lessons in love. Maybe you’ll become a disciple.
