Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Written in 1966, this book is Marys first and best autobiography. It tells her story from childhood and ends with her still busy helping to define a decade. Its full of fun and really makes the excitement of the sixties come alive.

Just after this book was published, Mary brought out the first ever Hot-Pants and had many more years of success!!

I'm sure Mary Quant had a very interesting life, but the way this book is written does not endear her to the reader.Very self aggrandising.

A very interesting read, and most enlightening if you want to know about life in the 1960's! Written in the present tense can be a little disconcerting until you get into it.

Quant by Quant 5 Dec 2012
By Cindy L. Urban - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I owned the original book printed in the 60's and loved it ! This rendition has the wonderful story of Mary Quant,but is missing many of the pictures offered in the original book,and the quality of the paper used is of poor quality,and the cover is very flimsy,making this books shelf life limited.I still enjoyed reading this autobiography again.

A nice flashback to 60s fashion 10 Nov 2013
By Fashion on bookshelves - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
In her autobiography, Mary Quant tells her story in such a sincere way, so much that it feels like you are having a conversation with her. The story starts from her family life, her school years in Goldsmiths College where she also meets her future husband Alexander. It is “marvelous” (she uses this word very often) to discover how she later becomes the fashion icon she is, by making a revolution, something that not anyone has a chance to do.
It is a pity that the book has few pictures.
