    This book is overrated. I bought this because of heaps of positive reviews I have read online and the cute cover. I guess books shouldn't be really judged by its cover. This book is just plainly lame. Camilla Morton has written pieces of advice which everyone who has common sense already knows.

    I thought the 50's were over. Im sure this book is mean to be lighthearted and not taken too seriously, but I'm scared that many young women will take it seriously. Instead of teaching girls how to put on makeup in five minutes or load your ipod as fast as your dishwasher, why not teach them to not rely so much on material crap that doesnt really matter anyway. This book is just another example of why women are treated like crap in today's world. Why not write about teaching women how to demand respect and be smart.

    2% brilliant. 18% interesting. 30% celebrity trash...50% UGH. Fi

    2% brilliant. 18% interesting. 30% celebrity trash...50% UGH. First of all, this book does NOT teach you how to walk in heels. (Heel toe Heel toe? No!!! I've even tried it and twisted my ankle.) Practice does not make perfect with that technique. The book only gets worse with subjects such as: How to Unblock Drains and How to Put Up a Fence with ridiculous answers…”Uhhh…too much work. Someone else has to do this.”(p.313) Then Morton explains how to be an Independent Woman, “Uh, Destiny’s Child made a cool song.”(p.412)
    I knew I should have read the first 104 pages and realized that Ms. Morton is either a VERY bored woman or she had this book published by a drunk nobody…speaking of “drunk,” in the chapter, How to Have Good Table Manners, she dedicates FIFTEEN pages to wine and how to LOVE it. (Not everyone drinks alcohol, nitwit. -_-“) Page 394, she gives an awful list of activities to do in foreign countries. Does “rolling your own cigar in Cuba” sound like something a “Girl” should do? Not chic at all!
    She advises girls with big hips to wear “baggy tops” (p.40) and that they should “highlight another area.” Blue lipstick is gross. (p.41) Only wear pink nail polish (p.37)and go to alcohol when you want to drink yourself into oblivion! (p.195) When you wear heels, “Leave spikey marks on their carefully polished floor.” (p.30) How to Make your Hotel Room Feel like Home. EWW!!! (p.389) How to Mirror, Signal, Makeup, Maneuver…”Clearly a car was designed for a woman: there are mirrors everywhere!” Ha. (p.389) This woman is full of bad advice. Oh, and chardonnay! (p192)
    Despite the drug references and stupid ideas, she gives some good insight every few dozen pages. The best thing I learned from her book is how to pick up dog poop.
    I give this book one star because I cannot figure out how to give it zero.
