Book Description

18 April 2008 Where to Buy the Best of Everything
Our Born to Shop author Suzy Gershman has compiled her favorite stores, brands, and websites from around the world into one handy shopper′s guide! As Suzy writes, "This book is the cumulative effort of over twenty years of research. It is a thoroughly fact–checked rendition of my Rolodex, my Filofax, my hard drive, and a million miles of international travel—and possibly a million dollars worth of shopping expeditions."

Where to Buy the Best of Everything: The Outspoken Guide for World Travelers and Online Shoppers is divided by product category, with chapters devoted to Women′s Clothing, Women′s Shoes & Accessories, Menswear, Kids, Beauty, Homestyle, Food, Lifestyle & Department Stores, and more. You′ll find close to 1000 stores and brand listings, each with Suzy′s opinionated description, notes on her favorite products, price ranges, and location information. Suzy places a heavy emphasis on online shopping, so you don′t need to travel the world to use this book. Websites are listed throughout, and many reviews include tips about online–only products, notes on shipping costs, and website pricing comparisons.

From food to fashion, this guide spans the globe. Let Suzy teach you, as she notes in her introduction, How to Be a Shopping God or Goddess.

3.0 out of 5 stars for the beginner 24 May 2008

Maybe I shop too much, but I was disappointed that there was not more original/off-beat advice. It might be more efficient than a search-engine for the novice, but for a serious shopper, it will simply confirm a lot of what you already know.

I just returned from the South of France via Paris for a week and I took this brand new Suzy book along......Cannes, Nice, St Tropez, Monaco etc was fun with these tips and I wish I could have seen the entire list Suzy had before the edited version.

I love shopping, what can I say. The book is glossy and fun and pretty and even if I never really use it, I love having it on my desk "just in case".
1.0 out of 5 stars What a joke 24 July 2013
By Rae Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have never spent the time or hassle to return something to Amazon, but after going through this book for a couple days, it went back faster than a snagged sweater. To double check that I was giving this book a fair chance, I turned to some of the destinations or categories I'm really well versed in and the advice and selection of information was very lacking in quantity and quality.

If you really have no idea where to buy lingere or a handbag, this book may be helpful for you. But for the 98% of people that have eyes to see the world around them or could do 10 minutes of easy research online, or ask a local or hotel clerk where a certain type of store is, there is nothing in this book that is so special to warrant the purchase. Actually, even is someone gave me this book for free I don't think I'd use it.
