What this book is, essentially, is a travel guide - there are pages and pages of shop listings (some of them clothes shops, many not), plus hotel and restaurant recommendations etc, and then thrown in for good measure, some extraordinarily patronising style and beauty advice, pegged on to the premise of 'the Berlin woman always...' or 'the Berlin woman never...'. Some (paraphrased) examples: get plenty of sleep; drink lots of water [this appears more than once]; watch your weight, but don't count calories as that's boring and unattractive; never wear red lipstick if you're over 30; never wear sleeveless tops unless your arms are really toned (a la Michelle Obama), but not TOO toned (Madonna)... on and on it goes.
Much of the 'advice' is very specific to the author, a 50-something book editor who claims that most of Berlin is self-employed in the creative professions.
Bottom line, this book is very much NOT an overview of Berlin street style, which is disappointing.
