Bad Girls Go Everywhere: The Life of Helen Gurley Brown (Oxford University Press, 2009) has turned up among O, The Oprah Magazine's top 10 books about sex.
The feature, "Under the Covers: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Sex (But Didn't Know to Ask)," has Professor Jennifer Scanlon's biography of the longtime Cosmopolitan editor at number nine.
The article says, "Scanlon's shrewd biography reveals a woman of contradictions (e.g., Brown is happily monogamous), a strategically racy cultural pioneer."

Scanlon's book has enjoyed rave reviews from major publications, most recently in The New Yorker, The Washington Post and National Review.
