Okay, so a lot of people dislike Rachel Zoe intensely. That has nothing to do with the merits of the book. I can't say that I'd want be pals with Rachel and since I think the 70s were a hideous era I would never be comfortable in her clothes but I have to give credit where it is due. This is an enjoyable book. Rachel Zoe lives a madcap life and she's not apologizing for it and her ideas on how to prepare for your big night out are excellent. I plan to take up her suggestion of buying an instant camera to check out how a potential outfit really looks.

Her section on packing was very good and I even liked the section on entertaining. If you can only afford to get one book on style get Tim Gunn's but if you can splurge and you just want to be amused try Style from A to Zoe.

I was hoping for a great book on fashion and style. This is not that book. It's much more of a "me, my glamorous life and friends" with a dash of usuable information. Not worth the time unless you like that sort of thing.

Don't bother spending the money on this book; use it on a subscription to InStyle instead, or buy a nice bottle of wine and think stylish thoughts while sipping. If you must purchase it what you can expect is photo after photo of Zoe mugging for the camera with all of her glamourous designer and celebrity friends, complete with accounts of her jet setting life and travels to international destinations. It looks like a self-absorbed personal scrapbook that she decided to add some fashion advice to. Even then, the advice is not earth-shattering or ground breaking or even all that helpful. Most of it is stuff we probably already know just by getting out of bed in the morning. Her advice is also not really meant for us,(you know, those who don't hang out with Missoni and Lyndsey Lohan)it seems like its meant to make us realize how terribly unlucky we are not to be living her BEAUTIFUL life with her BEAUTIFUL friends and all her BEAUTIFUL stuff. An example "I would feel so NAKED without my huge, gold Cartier watch." Ummm..yah, me too Rachel, I know the feeling. Soooo tragic. What's tragic is that someone actually didn't have the guts to tell this woman to keep doing her great styling but to avoid annoying the rest of us in the process with this useless book.

I bought this book along with Nina Garcia's Little Black Book of Style. While the other book was great, this one was a total waste of money.

I completely agree with past reviewers who said this book is basically a compilation of Rachel Zoe saying, "Look at me and my fabulousness and all of my celebrity friends!" It's a whole lot of name dropping and the narrative format of the book prevents it from conveying any truly useful tips on building your own style.

And yes, the other reviews do look suspicious.

I bought this book because I liked the tv show and wanted some fashion advice. This book was a let down. It was mostly about the people who she thought were style icons and her life and love of fashion. Sprinkled in are some tips on how to dress for different occassions, advice on how to find you style, and live life to the fullest. Also nice the advice is no better than what you could get from a good friend or your mother.

This book is great if you like celebrity pictures and want a glemse of celebrity life, but you can get that from any magazine.

The book is mostly common sense when it comes to fashion advice, although there are a few interesting tidbits. I enjoyed the book mainly for the "aspirational" value; it allows you to live vicariously through the lovely Ms. Zoe, and come on, who wouldn't want her life?

I'm probably going to use the book as a decorative coffee table piece for my guests to enjoy. It's the worth the buy if you like to look at pictures of famous and beautiful people, and get a little advice along the way.

Awful book. Even though it was a relatively quick read (mostly photos and only 180-some pages), it was a chore to get through. There are more instances of Ms. Zoe frothing at the mouth about her A-list clients than there are of practical fashion advice for people of all budgets. Zoe also blathers on and on about how much she loves '70s fashion, Halston jumpsuits, Missoni caftans, and vintage items that someone may have broken wind in while wearing at Studio 54. She goes on and on about her own personal style, beautiful people friends, and pointless personal anecdotes. As a result, Zoe comes off as caricature of a girl born with a silver spoon in her mouth instead of an in-demand stylist. All this would be well and good if it were an autobiography of Ms. Zoe. However, as a style guide, "A to Zoe" fails miserably, assuming that the reader will want to be a Rachel Zoe clone and dress exactly like her in their own every day lives, rather than finding a way to use style basics and tailor them to their own personal style. In short, this book was crap. For a much more down-to-earth read on style basics and how to jazz them up with your own personal flair on ANY budget, read Victoria Beckham's "That Extra Half an Inch" or Tim Gunn's "A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style."

Too many people like to attack Rachel, but I'm a fan. I approve her taste, save for the skinny/anorexic thing, but that's another story.

This said, I enjoyed the book TREMENDOUSLY. As a fashionista, I find it was very generous of her to share her access (and advice!) to the top fashion industry people (Diane von Furstenberg, Jimmy Choo's Tamara Mellon, Azzaro's Vanessa Seward, Donatella Versace, Margherita Missoni, Decades's Cameron Silver, etc). There's plenty of priceless advice, from choosing the right kind of jeans for your figure to organizing your closet, how to choose vintage clothing right, etc.

I personnally loved the chapter on accessories organizing- where her sister Pamela shares her method.

Despite accusations of "narcissism", I found the tone of her book very gracious, together and smart. She is good at what she does, is a very successful woman and she is, yes, nice.

I recommend it to any fan of glamour and high fashion.
