Not what it says on the cover
on 11 April 2008
From the title I would have expected to read about some valuable life lessons, or at the very least some wise words. Disappointingly, nothing whatsoever of that nature could be found between the beautifully illustrated covers.
Basically a glorified shopping guide for the very well to do, Lucia Van Der Post comes across as shallow, snobbish and clueless.
Statements like "It is almost always the woman who benefits most from a marriage" in her tiny section on marriage left me feeling incredulous at this womans extraordinary naivety and lack of insight.
