The landlocked mermaid is a symbol of the contemporary woman, trapped in a paradoxical dilemma of being part worldly and domesticated, part untamable and intuitive. In A Survival Guide for Landlocked Mermaids, artist Margot Datz sees the she-nymph within, struggling to emerge, and in a swirl of whimsical and witty wisdom, lovingly offers tips for today's world of dating, mating, and beyond.Margot's beautifully painted, contemporary mermaids are caught in the nets of their own comical dilemmas, circling the heart's fishbowl of romantic longings and in the murky depths of deep emotion. Whether it's the value of cultivating an inner water garden or coping with crow's feet and fish tails, Margot offers advice and an enchanting way of hydrating your weary mermaid soul.
Even though I dont believe this book can help women as much as Mermaid Wisdom: Enrich Your Life With Insights from the Deep I still enjoyed reading this. My favorite part about this book was the dating/ mating section. It gave really good advice on how to maintain and keep a relationship, but still remember to keep a piece of you for yourself and to remember your morals. I like that this section teaches women that you may love a sailor or a pirate with all your heart, but you have to remember that he has to take care of you too. Some men dont understand how to "care for and feed a mermaid". Along with the strong advice this book gives women of all ages, the artwork in this book is amazing! It is fun, playful, vibrant and funny! Many of the mermaids in this book are shown doing human-like things, which helps the reader relate to the authors message more. I reccomend this for women of all ages, especially 18 and over. I give this book (****) 4 stars.
