|The TALL Book [signed copy]|
by Arianne Cohen
|Buy From Amazon.com Do you know someone who's tall? |
This book's for them.
Smart. Wealthy. Successful.
Presidents. Oscar winners. CEOs.
Scrunched into airplane seats. Unable to find good clothes. Why?
Arianne Cohen--all 6'3" of her--takes us on a tour of Tall World, traveling from endocrinologists' offices to the annual European Tall Club Convention, to unlock the mysteries at the center of talldom: Why do tall people succeed professionally, financially and intellectually? Why are tall men the most successful dating and mating group on earth, while tall women have low birth rates? And who the hell is behind those airplane seats?
Part investigation and part personal story, The Tall Book follows Arianne as she circles the globe, meeting the tallst people in the world, questioning them on how to raise a well-adjusted tall kid, and, yes, becoming one half of America's tallest couple.
Lively, witty and erudite, The Tall Book is a must-read for the tall and not-so-tall--or anyone searching for the secrets of living the high life.
