While she was acting on The Partridge Family, Susan was working on her own project. At age 19, she published a book, Susan Dey’s Secret on Boys, Beauty and Popularity. The book came out in 1972, about halfway through her Partridge Family career.

In the book, Susan talks about her personal experience and advice. Her topics include makeup, dating, staying in shape, and hair care. Although the book came out over 45 years ago, it’s still relevant today.
