The Official Sloane Ranger Handbook: The First Guide to What Really Matters in Life
The Official Sloane Ranger Handbook: The First Guide to What Really Matters in Life
by Ann Barr
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Flashback, 5 April 2014
Having grown up in the world described and being a teenager when the book first came out, I find its resurgence both charming and somewhat confusing. The book was a parody of a moment in time, a journalistic in-joke that spiralled out of control. As much as Chaucer's characters or a column in Private Eye this book was a social lampoon ( al be it an affectionate one), that belonged to Pucci Pizza, the Hurlingham Club and MPW. Most of the Schools referred to have since become co-ed the regiments disappeared or merged. It should be taken as what it is and no more, an artefact of social history,

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Roll neck stuff, 16 Nov 2013
I first heard this book on Radio 4, it provided a mid day break from my normal routine of doing nothing as a post graduate student, ( i use the term " student" puerly as the English language has yet to provide me with a better term for the officially sanctioned indolence that characterised my academic life). So impressed was I that as soon as the book was completed on radio I dragged my self of to Bristol's Waterstones and ordered a copy. The book when it arrived provided a wonderful excuse to continue doing nothing in pseudo Bohemian coffee shops around Clifton and feel immensely superior to the enthusiastic undergraduates coining exactly the same thing with copies of Brideshead. being able to read this book in public and not spill my coffee due to laughing out loud remains the gradates achievement of my academic career

I have been drifting towards Veganism for a while, though reading the Engine 2 diet this book is somewhere between the two Epstynes it's more scientific than Rip's Engine 2 books but more accessible than his father's
