Format: Hardcover
Came across this book and had to see what every woman should know.
Now being the age I am(not telling), I wondered what I didn't already grasp
in my life so far.
This little gem has tons of information to help you in all aspects of your life.

The first section deals with how to "Do it yourself".
Tips like fixing a flat tire, how to sew a hem, plus,how to parallel park.
These indeed are important, I agree.

Next, this book deals with business and pleasure.
This is one of my favorites, by the way.
How to ask for a raise, how to throw a football,and how to act confident (Even When you are not.)

There are chapters on frienships, beauty and fashion, plus etiquette and socializing too.(too late for me now)!
Now some chapters were better than others I have to admit.
Like the one where it tells you "How to Give a Passionate, Mind-blowing,Knock-His Socks-Off Kiss".

All in all, this little book helped me in my quest for knowledge.
What shall I do with this booklet?
I have the perfect place, in the powder room for other people to enjoy!
The author Alanna Kalb, did a fine job with the 'Little' things in life.
As she states,"Taking care of yourself is the ultimate gift you can give yourself,
and you'll be a happier, healthier person for it."

I am a college student and let me just say, this clueless girl had lots to learn when she left the nest lol. This book has basic little things that can can definitely help as long with some silly tips like "Good response to bad pick-up lines" If your from a family where you parents made sure you can survive, this is not the book for you, but for me it's perfect! I love how tiny it is and how cute it looks in my book shelf! It's a perfect little gift for people taking off to college and i definitely recommend it to people who are feeling like they lack basic knowledge, but are too embarrassed to be asking questions about it.

If you want a book that has a story line then this book isn't for you! The book has advice and tips on common every day activities and tasks that women should obviously know! The tiny size of the book allows for it to be just thrown in your purse and keep at all times. Enjoyed the book and will probably pass it on to my children some day.

The book is pocket sized.A lot of the information is common sense or tips you have heard before. Some of the information in the book is about personal preferences. However, there are some tips in the book that are not common knowledge that can come in handy...like removing specific types of stains, what drink to pick in differnt social situations etc...

It is a great little book for your purse. Very cute and actually has really good stuff inside!
My favorite part was the Good Responses to Bad Pick-Up lines. They were hilarious

I had loved "Stuff Every Man Should Know" but this this Woman's version was underwhelming. There were a few useful tidbits, but it's not worth the price, nor is it a good tabletop book. I'd pass on this one.

Purchased this as a high school graduation gift for my son's girlfriend who knows a lot of stuff about a lot of stuff. However, as is the case with many young women these days they're so busy they just don't have time to learn things that their mothers or grandmothers did. This pocket companion is the perfect "quick fix" guide that can show them how to get by in a pinch and (hopefully) call back home to Mom when they get more time.

I'm personally bookmarking this edition on the "Cooking Tips" page for my son's girlfriend as she goes off to college with some cooking advice from me (cooking isn't really her thing), as well as pizza money in case of emergency!

Lots of great advice throughout from how to change a tire to how to talk to anyone (love that!).

Great gift idea for young women graduating high school.

i like to read a lot, so I've read and know most of the things in this book.. but i guess it's handy to have it written down somewhere. I'm sure this book would make a nice stocking-stuffer for a girl in her late teens.
also, it shipped pretty fast.
