5.0 out of 5 stars Genuinely refreshing take on the genre: an informative yet humorous read, 11 Sep 2009
This review is from: How to be Adored (Hardcover)
Granted, there are a lot of books of a similar vein out there but I have to say this one really stands out because it actually has some really new and insightful things to tell you about being 'adored'. I loved the little titbits about the old Hollywood stars - the lengths some of them went to in order to be glamorous!! But beyond the tips about how to make my hair shiny or dress well for my shape this book gave me some really useful advice about how to be a more 'adorable' person(ality) - like how to talk to people at parties and how to speak beguilingly for example. I really did feel like I was learning something, but this book isn't just a lecture or a dry 'how to' manual. The author writes wittily and scathingly when appropriate and it was like being confided in by a brilliantly gossipy and knowledgeable friend.
