Alot of Fluff, not much Stuff. 15 avril 2007
Par Lincoln - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I agree with the person that said this was the equivalent of a bunch of magazine tidbits. There is ALOT of nothing in here... things that I could've gathered on my own. It was quite disappointing on so many levels. Barely entertaining bathroom reading?! Yes, but not for the price and hype. Here are some low-lights in this first half of the book.

How to be stylish: "remember a good pair of shoes can make any outfit. Likewise, a bad pair can do irrevocable damage." (Okay, so what's a good pair and a bad pair?)

Half a page on how to stick to a gym membership summed up: Tell everyone. Ideally go with a friend. Know what will scare you into action. (DUH.)

How to swim in shades (summarized): wrap a rubber band around each arm of the shades. Then make an inconspicuous ponytail with a small strand of hair to keep the shades in place. (Sounds like a breeze.)

Hair: Dry shampoo is perfect for reviving bands. (Proceeds to offer how to for teasing hair into a big bouffant, no pictures included. At least in magazines there are pictures.)

Tips for the salon: dress to impress, giving the stylist some inspiration. Be prepared (ie-bring a book for the down time.) Do not opt for a style that you cant re-create (Duh.) Know the style that suits your face (DUH) and get your punchline out before the dryer is on (as you and your stylist cant hear as well when the dryer is on).

How to deal with bad hair days: wear a hat. (This takes up two pages. Two additional pages on "how to wear a hat".)

Some of the biggest disappoints:

How to deal with unpleasant situations covers how to avoid the flu "keep your hands clean... eat fruits and vegetables..."; how to apply adhesive bandages, how to be stylish in a sling; how to use toilets at concert venues; how to pick up dog doo with style...

How to survive an occasion "weddings, funerals & birthdays". (The book skimps on the most important aspect... gifts!) "If they have a wedding list, go for it. If all you can afford is a sugar-bowl lid, so be it." (Did I need a book for this?!)

How to dance: "Invest in VH1 and MTV- watch the videos and learn". (If it were all that easy, we'd all be dancing like Beyonce and Justin Timberlake, no?!) Precedes to outline the moves to the tango with no foot charts or pictures.

How to grill bacon, sausage, and tomato: Generously piece and put under grill, and flip when they look done.

How to get a mortgage: all you need to do is go to Google, type in "mortage broker," et voila. (sounds fail proof to me, seeing as there are very few internet scams out there nowadays)

Save your money! 6 septembre 2007
Par Melissa G. Chattaraj - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
You barely have to read a page or two into the excerpt here to see that you will not get the best advice here. What kind of advice does it give for emphasizing the waist? Low slung pants, cropped tops, and belly piercings. SERIOUSLY? That's about the worst fashion advice I've ever heard. Maybe that's ok for sassy little 15 year olds, but it is the farthest thing from classy, and not usually appropriate or flattering! Honestly, the advice in this book, save for a few words of wisdom from some bona fide experts, is at best fluff, and at worst just plain bad.

Needs work. 2 septembre 2008
Par Jami J. Russell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This, like The Little Black Book Of Style, really only has advice that applies to skinny girls. Not fat ones like myself. Yet, it's easier to read and doesn't leave me wanting to burst into tears like LBBOS.

However, I disagree with 99% of what the author has to say. Now I'm glad she said that if you have a big belly and/or hips you should wear baggy tops. If only my fellow fatties would listen to her on this! (Please, the skin-tight clothes do NOT make you look thinner, it just makes people point at you and laugh.) And that she admitted no one looks good in horizontial stripes. Now if she'd just add "If you have fat, fleshy arms, you MUST wear REAL sleeves - and cap sleeves are NOT real sleeves."

Really though, the book is a waste of time and money. A lot of things she says are just stupid. You don't have to watch MTV and VH1 - good music ends in the 80s. Anything past that that isn't a Broadway musical isn't worth wasting your time on. Modern art isn't art. Her advice to be up on these things can just be thrown away. Why all the discussion on poker and horse betting? Why would a girl need to know this? Gambling is boring.

And of course her talk about how a woman should never wear a heel lower then 5 inches is just insane. There's no such thing as a comfortable high heel. And saying that lower heels are actually worse for your back then a 5 inch heel just defies medical and common sense. Finally, dumping a man just because he's shorter then you is pretty darn shallow and makes a woman look like someone no one wants to spend time with.

If anything, the only thing this book has done is further convinced me that I will never be able to walk in high heels and need to accept my place as "Failure As A Woman."

If you must read it, borrow from your local library and return on time so you don't waste money on it like I did.

What a waste of paper 19 avril 2012
Par Spm G. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
How to load a DVD player.
How to tell a palm tree from a Palm Pilot.
How to make popcorn.

Not only is it grossly outdated, it's garbage that women all know based on common sense. On top of that, it plays into the stereotype that women are idiots who couldn't tell their head from their butts. It puts women back a hundred years! Don't waste your money on this book.

An exercise in desperation 9 janvier 2009
Par Antonia Jenner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Oh how disappointed I was by this book! Although witty in a few places, it read very much like someone trying very hard to create something that just wouldn't come together. I'm a Brit living in Canada, and excused the parts on electronics that would have little value for anyone on this side of the pond, but the rest of the book was so utterly juvenile that it seemed written for a child. How to thread a needle? Cook bacon and sausages? Come on! Oh yes, and someone once told me he valued our friendship too much to "risk" it by dating. We've been married for over 25 years and are looking forward to the next 25. And he's not a liar :) I'm assuming the never wear heels under 5" bit was tongue-in-cheek. The book started out in a promising note but, by the time I'd dragged myself to the end, I'm afraid it only qualified for one star.
