6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Sharon T. Foster on May 6, 2002
Many years ago, I entered my first pageant and was thrilled to be named 1st Runner Up. I would never have made it to that level so quickly without the fabulous training I received from Verna Slade, author of The Beauty Pageant Manual. For years, the only way to tap into Verna's vast knowledge of the pageant industry was through many hours of personal training. Now, everyone has the opportunity to benefit from her expertise. By implementing the tips and suggestions that Verna provides in her book, pageant contestants can achieve a higher level of success. I am living proof of that. There is also information that will help judges and emcees improve their techniques and elevate their skill levels.

The beauty pageant manual is the go-to book for success in pageants. In this book, Verna Slade offers her rich knowledge of decades of research on the pageant industry. Verna coached me from a local pageant through a state pageant and ultimately to a national level pageant where I received the First Runner Up prize. I owe EVERYTHING to Verna for getting me there. We worked tirelessly for 5 months, almost daily to get everything in. She was my style coach, my interview coach, my manners coach and my mentor. Any of us lucky enough to experience Verna's coaching know much information there is to learn and she is the perfect teacher. So a few years later, Verna organized this training information into a step-by-step guide for anyone to follow. You can benefit now from Verna's expertise and knowledge. I have used the information contained in this book not just to be successful in pageants but successful in life after pageants. Can I give the book 6 stars?!?
