That is the main message of the book. It reiterates over and over that styling is not as glamorous as the public eye may perceives it to be; it is truly like a non fictitious "The Devil Wears Prada" lifestyle. The book is extremely helpful in the way that it shows actual photos and commentary from today's most successful stylists. However, readers may be completely disenchanted with styling as a career as it is made clear throughout the book, you give up and sacrifice a lot of your personal life to do what you love. Read this book to educate yourself in the fashion industry and to aid you in truly making a life decision in pursuing styling. I've highlighted and post-it'ed nearly half of the book and stopped reading it completely to realize that maybe styling is not for me.

I found this book to be a fairly good read for anyone interested in the world of fashion,especially those interested in Styling their clients or themselves to the very best:) I liked that their was great info from so many Amazing stylist's in the world of fashion expressing themselves in to what brought them into this Unbelievable world of Fashion. Their are lots of tips here to follow with styling clients which I found to be a great variety of info that you for sure need to make yourself or your client to handle any mishap that could happen at a big event. The author is realistic in her writing stating that this field you must love fashion to truly work in the industry as the hours are long and intense, and sometimes the payoff can take awhile,but as long you LOVE FASHION THIS THEN YOU HAVE FOUND THE RIGHT BOOK TO GO TO ALONG THE WAY OF THIS FAST PACED EVER CHANGING CAREER OF STYLING!!

An excellent resource book for budding stylist with tips, tricks, and great insider information; developing personal style, the role of a stylist, outline of different types of stylists, how the business of styling works. Wish I had this book, when I began...

I should've ready the synopsis better, but I'd expected more of a "Style for dummies"-type of approach.

What I got was "How to survive and thrive at being a stylist." Useful tips for organization, understanding personality types, inner workings of the business of fashion. Definitely more of a professional's handbook.

The book was in good condition with the exception of it being a little dirty but not bad enough to return. It took a while for me to receive it but overall a very good purchase.
