At first I was a bit nervous about buying the book, after all it was just a book on how to be a lady. But when I started reading I could not stop. The book tells you everything you need to know about being a modern lady. It is funny, a nice easy read, and very educational. I must admit that I did know a lot of what I read in the book, but it was good to actually read it.
I particularly enjoyed the pages where Derek demonstrates the differences between being a lady and a tramp with photos of his friend Byrdie Bell. The end of the book even has suggestions on what books to read, artists to know, documentaries and movies to watch and lots more!
This will surely be a classic book in the future as the new etiquette book for girls, since it is updated to include cell phones, computers and more new technology.
The people that will read this book are most likely those young women that do not need to be told how to be a lady. The "tramps" as Derek calls them, that should be reading this book have probably never heard of it. A few of my "friends" should read the chapter on being good friends and how to act around people. But I will not name names, not like any of my real life friends know about this blog anyway.
- Is there such a thing as being too tall?
- Can I wear a short dress to prom?
- What is the Proper Attire for Airports?
- Lots more here!
UPDATE: hmm...after reading this it sorta seems negative at some points, but here's the bottom line:
I LOVE THIS BOOK! It is so awesome and everyone should buy it!
P.S. Thanks Derek for actually reading this! :D :D
