Poorly typeset, blog-level amateur content
on May 25, 2012
I bought this book based on the good reviews here at Amazon, but was not impressed when I received and read it.
The content is poorly typeset, with grammatical and typesetting errors throughout, and looks like it was put together on Word.
The content of the book is unoriginal, and reads more like a mashup of Cosmo advice column content than anything new and insightful. There's a list of "must have" items - like you'd find once a year in any women's magazine - or on any fashion blog.
Then there are the tips for tall women, short women etc. I'm a very tall woman, and would have thought the author could have come up with something better than "get a tailor" and "pretend your too-short trousers are 3/4 pants"! Oh, and "push your too-short shirtsleeves up to make them look like they're 3/4 sleeves".
The author comes across as an intelligent, pleasant personality. I'm just not impressed with the standard of the book she's written. I wouldn't recommend buying this book - there are much better offerings on Amazon elsewhere.
