Not as much fun as its precursor, "The Official Preppy Handbook", but still amusing enough. As others have noted, it sounds middle aged rather than youthful. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Anne Mills
This follow up is not as good as the original. The original book had real bite and force behind its satirical portrait.
