If you are questioning buying this book, don't. Buy it and you will not regret it. Unlike most books that tell you how you should act, be or do, I found that I really enjoyed this one. 50 Things Every Young Lady Should Know, was a great read. It wasn't long paragraphs of other people's experiences, nor was it all 'do this' and 'do that'. Each section was pleasurable to read. And I loved the modern spin on the book, with the 'social networking', compared to other books on how a lady should act, where they are all stuck in the 1950's ways, where we can no longer be like that as the world has evolved. I was defiantly recommend this book to every young women out there. Everyone needs to know the basics of people proper.
