Review

“A lifesaver…. [The Modern Girl’s Guide to Sticky Situations is] the paperback personification of a BFF, and you won’t want to leave home without it.” (LATimes.com)

From the Back Cover

This is the book to grab when . . . you're pulling your hair out, screaming like a banshee, blubbering with frustration, or hyperventilating because you just don't know what to do!

Jane Buckingham, author of The Modern Girl's Guide to Life, is back with a collection of helpful quick fixes for the deserving gal with the best intentions who gets caught in sticky situations. Here are warm, witty, and eminently wise solutions to those everyday problems that pop up as a result of impulsive actions or just plain bad luck—helpful hints on what to do if you:

  • Send an e-mail you instantly regret
  • Botch your self-tan
  • Discover your best friend's husband is cheating on her
  • Break your corkscrew while opening your only bottle of wine
  • Run into your ex and need to look hot, fast!
  • Are expected to name your baby after a family member with an awful name

And that's just a small sampling of the scenarios for which Jane Buckingham offers solutions in The Modern Girl's Guide to Sticky Situations. So if you find yourself in a pickle . . . just leave it to Jane!

LOVED this book! As a single woman in my late 20's this book is filled with aha moments that have come in handy already. Who knew you could get red wine out of a white couch? Or when the cork goes into the wine bottle, to use a coffee filter to fix the problem. I've also started putting tweezers in my car, because Jane Buckingham is SO RIGHT! You do see those unwanted stray chin / eyebrow hairs best when the light is shining...

Definitely recommend this book. Its laugh out loud funny, honest and filled with information to get anyone out of Sticky Situations!! Its become my own personal "survival guide".

THE MGGTSS covers it all, all the sticky details. there is nothing too sticky for the author. what a great girlfriend advice book as well as a fun gift to give. a couple of my gal pals and I have had quite a laugh playing with the book. almost like we've created the Sticky Situation game. Great fun, good read, I wish she was back on TV with her modern girl's guide and this. 5 stars for the girls.

I already own The Modern Girl's Guide to Life and absolutely love that book, so I thought this one was a must-have. It is full of lots of great tips on getting out of sticky situations, but didn't seem as complete a guide as I had hoped. If you can purchase this at a discount like I did, it would definitely be worth it. I doubt I would've paid full price for it, because it isn't full of enough information for me.

I would recommend this book to everyone, but more so to those who attend parties and work in the corporate world.

This book made me laugh. in fact, it made me laugh so hard out loud that my husband kept looking over at me from the other end of the couch rolling his eyes. There are so many truths in this book whether you're a single woman in her 20's or married woman in her 40's, there's always something you can relate to on every page you turn. I highly recommend this entertaining and even pithy book...Girlfriends Guide is a perfect summer read and an even better girlfriends gift...

Format: Paperback
This is a fun well written reference book with concise answers to specific embarrassing, often silent screaming scenarios facing females (and by extrapolation of relational implication males) in modern society. The topics run the gamut of nine sticky chapters (love; weddings; home; family; parties, beauty fashion, and shopping; work; and on the go) and one dedicated section to the Icky. The topics include a vast range. For instance, Jane Buckingham provides short treatise on giving a toast in public when public speaking requires adult diapers to social internet commentary on your date mate to secret physical issues that range the gamut to having kids at home, etc. Whether it is the "Sticky" or the "Icky" Ms. Buckingham provides easy to follow and apply advice on how to survive and often thrive during a social tsunami that might feel yucky and sticky.

To be perfectly honest, I usually hate most advice books-- to me they usually come across as preachy or obviously superficial. This book is different. It is edgy and fun. Buckingham is someone you feel like you want to be friends with-- in fact, i feel like a collection of my girlfriends wrote it under a pseudonym.

I often wish that I could have a personal rewind button to pause and erase what I just said or did and start again. Until then, this book is extremely helpful!
