  • Exercise. Joan's program is suitable for women of all ages. She is photographed step-by-step as she works out with her daughter, Katy. Looking good takes discipline and organization and Joan does these exercises several times a week wherever she is in the world.
  • Joan's make-up secrets. Joan is photographed from bare faced to fully made up. She reveals tricks she learned from leading Hollywood make-up artist Whitey Snyder, who also worked closely with Marilyn Monroe.
  • Relationships, love and sex. Joan speaks frankly about “everyone's favorite subject,” including her relationship and marriage with Percy Gibson, tips on finding the right man and her views on sexual freedom for women.
  • The art of assertiveness. How to speak your mind, how to say no and mean it and how to avoid being manipulated. Also, Joan's views on financial independence and how she handles difficult people and situations.
  • Achieving happiness. Joan has seen many highs and lows in her life and she reveals what makes her happy, how she handles conflict and bad times, plus her personal advice for happiness.
