Product Description

Review

Just what every modern girl needs. (Glamour)

'This is the essential reference book any self-respecting aspiring socialite needs.' (Guardian)

'Not only genuinely useful, but leaves you on a high, lifted by her breezy wit and addictively efferevescent attitude.' (Mail on Sunday)

'Packed with handy hints on almost every aspect of contemporary life.' (Independent, Books of the Year)

'Thoroughly modern...genuinely useful.' (The Times, Books of the Year)

'From playing poker to climbing out of a car in a mini skirt, from tackling lobster to changing a tyre, it's the most fabulous instruction manual the world has ever seen, all told in Camilla's inimitable straight-talking, hilariously funny style.' (Vogue.com)

Book Description

The perfect cocktail of Swiss Finishing School and DIY manual blended by a girl who knows how to use a screwdriver AND keep her seams straight.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glossy, superficial, but entertaining nonetheless 13 Dec. 2007
By Cath
Format:Paperback
I enjoyed this book. It's mostly quite witty, and sometimes very useful - Morton's fashion section is particularly well informed.
However, with each section, the narrative slows down - you can tell what her area of expertise is. It's a nice, lucid read, but there isn't a great deal of substance.
Morton sometimes comes across as being one of those women that conforms to the typical female stereotype (cook, clean, look pretty) - her political stance on which party to support was to choose the colour badge that would match your outfit the most. Despite some wry comments about this type of thing, you have to wonder why she'd write a book on how to be a girl if she didn't want to fall into the stereotype (and similarly, her readers).
Also, style and appearance is CONSTANTLY mentioned - you can't fix a tyre if it means that you'll mess up your hair, etc. This is quite annoying, but that is essentially the book's agenda.
Other than that, the book is very entertaining, and it certainly provides a very sketchy guide to most areas of thought. I'm giving it 4 stars, assuming that the reader had bought the book purely for the wit/amusing guides, such as "How to wear an apron with style".
Just don't buy this book for any of your feminist friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Womans Bible 24 Sept. 2005
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Every week my grandma gives us the books she gets from The Mail on Sunday, out popped the mini version to this book. I read it and fell about.. so decided to buy the full book!! What a fantastic book. With each chapter it just gets funnier. Its a modern womans bible..it tells you how to play poker, knit and garden, make curtains, and how to cook a full english breakfast, shepards pie and spag bol. The love section is so humorous. Can't put it down and keep taking it to work to show everyone. I think when i have finished reading this book, i will be super woman. A must buy!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Style over substance 22 Jan. 2006
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I was very disappointed with this book. It has a great title, and the contents page promises a great deal. It is beautifully produced and the illustrations are lovely - I was looking forward to reading it.
The 'information', however, is superficial at best, and incorrect at worst. Any woman who is at least vaguely competent should know at least 80% of what's in this book already.
There's an uncritical acceptance that whatever leads the market must therefore be the best (e.g. in computer software and MP3 players); the information about fitting a bra is just wrong, as even the most basic research would have shown. It tells you that knitting is the bees knees, but doesn't tell you how to do it or any pointers on how to learn apart from 'get someone to show you'. Helpful.
Names are dropped all over the place - Oooh! Look at my famous friends! - which I found irritating. I was also annoyed by comments such as, "Any connoisseur will know that the only real way to travel is by car or taxi. Live the fantasy and sign off taxi reciepts for the obvious reason: 'SF' (Stiletto Fatigue)", and "If your escort is shorter than you in your highest heels dump him immediately. A pair of Manolos lasts a lifetime, and you shouldn't compromise style for love." And so on, ad infinitum. Since when was it stylish to be shallow?
The book is not well written, there are several errors that slipped by the editor, the index is unreliable, and I'm afraid Camilla Morton came over as the kind of shallow, glossy, self-absorbed woman I try to avoid at parties.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fabulous! 28 Nov. 2005
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I didn't really know what to expect from this book...perhaps a guide to fashion, 'not what to wear' style. I was wrong - this book includes advice on absolutely EVERYTHING a glamourous girl needs. Not only what to wear, but how to entertain, how to be a domestic goddess, how to cope with modern technology - even how to drive! Useful stuff... Anyway, I'm certainly taking Morton's advice, I even went to the supermarket yesterday in my high heels. Not yet mowed the lawn in my stilletos, but I'm getting there... This should be a bible for every modern girl out there, absolutely wonderful!

5.0 out of 5 stars number one girls guide 23 Sept. 2005
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
If I had read this book before leaving home and/or going to University- I think I would be in a better place right now! Once I finally stopped flicking though the illustration and different interviews - I literally could not put the book down. I had read Camilla Mortons articals in the hipster U.K/ U.S magazines and loved her style of writing, "High heels" is no exception- even the sections I never thought I would read- came alive with her words.
This book is perfect for holidays, on the way to work, bedtime, walking the dog, lying in the bath- in fact everywhere- highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is truly a girls guide to everything 22 Sept. 2005
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is the perfect complement to a modern women's life- If I had read this book before university and/or moving out of home-I would be in a much better place right now! I had always enjoyed Camilla Morton's articles in the hipster U.K magazines and so knew that this book would be an enjoyable read- even the subject matters that I would not necessarily have been interested in- came alive with her words. If you are going on holiday, need something to read on the way to work, been dumped by your boyfriend or just need something for bed time! - get this book- it will cheer you up no end...also the illustrations are pretty cool too.

I loved this book when I first read it. However, being a mother to a young toddler and having read it a second time I found a lot of the advice in it no longer applied to me.

3.0 out of 5 stars It really should'nt have sticked to the title...
I would dispense the rather large section of the book that doesn't address fashion and girly stuff, really. That was why I bought the book, period. Read more
