This book, "A Touch of Grace -- How To Be A Princess, The Grace Kelly Way", by Cindy De La Hose, could easily be called "The Grace Kelly Finishing School-In-A-Book", or "The Big-Little Book of Grace Kelly." I truly believe, that, had Grace Kelly NOT become an actress, and NOT become a Princess, that she probably would have used her money to open up a finishing school for under-priviledged girls, (and boys), so that they, too, could have the social graces and advantages that would help them in life. This book outlines, (with topic headings, examples from Grace's life, and many, many, many wonderful photos, a summation of Grace's philosophies of life: what she believed, and how she acted on those beliefs. It is a small, though thick book, (5 1/2" x 7 1/2" x 1' thick), and thus also earns the title, "The Big-Little Book of Grace Kelly". It packs a lot into a small space. It doesn't show everything about Grace Kelly's life, (for instance, she once left a famous New York City restaurant, when that restaurant would not allow the Black entertainer, Josephine Baker, to enter its premises, and she did come back, several times, to Hollywood, to see old friends, taking her children with her to see what her former life had been like) -- but there is definitely enough here to at least begin to grasp what went on inside the head and mind of Grace Kelly, both before and after she became a Princess. For anyone wanting to emulate Grace Kelly and her way of life, this book shows there is a lot of hard work one must do to do this! The very real Princess Grace, (like the fictional heroine, 'Dagney Taggert', of Ayn Rand's 'The Fountainhead'), was quite definitely, "as delicate as a steel spring -- and as strong as one.Read more ›

I liked the book but don't expect to learn a lot about Princess Grace. It's mostly pictures with captions that may or may not have anything to do with the subject matter in the photo. I liked it because I like "Hello" magazine and the book reminded me of that.

This is not a good book if you are looking for a biography of Grace Kelly. This is not it. This is a very breezy, yet beautifully done hardbound book with tips on how to be like the effortlessly elegant Princess Grace.

And since this is just what I want to be, I bought this book. It has some lovely, wonderful shots of Grace. There is a good balance of text, quotes, and pictures... so that it is not a serious read but more than a coffee table book. Nice split between verbal and visual by Cindy de la Hoz (I've been familiar with some of her previous work, such as "Lucy at the Movies," which I also own).

I can also sincerely say that this book can help you learn how to be like Grace, how to be just that "lovely lady." If you are familiar with Grace Kelly and a fan of hers, you must get this book for your collection and you'll enjoy it. (As I did). If you don't know that much about the Princess of Monaco, go out and buy a biography of hers first, then come back and read this and you'll have a much better experience.

A Classic Hollywood collector (of books, movies, pictures, etc.) should indeed have this in their line up.

This is a sweet book for any Grace fan. Pictures are nothing new, nor is the text, but it's kind of fun. I purchased copies of this for Valentine's Day gifts and we mourned the fact there are no longer Jackie, Audrey or Grace types to be interested in. Not absolutely necessary to purchase but if you loved her you'd probably get a kick out of it.

One caveat, I ordered two copies I'd planned to give as presents. The dust covers were so damaged I had to purchase new ones from Barnes & Noble, I couldn't give them to friends.

A must-read for any Grace Kelly fan!

This book covers how to live one's life as graceful as Kelly did. It is full of colorful pics, quotes, and facts.

It's not a biography, so don't expect any "dirt" on the actress. The book takes on the classy side of Grace.
