Every girl knows that shopping is one of life's greatest pleasures. But did you know that retail therapy—that is, shopping when you're feeling down, undesirable, or simply bored out of your mind—can significantly improve your state of mind and quality of life? Enter A Girl's Guide to Retail Therapy—a celebration of shopping and the innumerable ways it can make you feel better fast.

Dreading that 40th birthday? Find out exactly what will help on page 91. Want to reward your pup for his unconditional love? See page 52 for ideas on how to spoil him. Need to get "high" in a hurry? There's an entire chapter devoted to the pursuit of cheap thrills.

Throughout the book, the author offers insider shopping tips on everything from hiring an interior designer to selecting a confidence-boosting shade of lipstick; every chapter also includes testimonials from real women who have benefited from the healing power of retail therapy.

    A fun, quick read

    No lectures about the evils of spending here! Still, this 'guide' does a pretty good job about offering a little insight into why we love to shop through anecdotes and suggestions for ways to get the shopping 'fix' without breaking the bank. Most of us love to shop... while a slightly frivolous purchase in and of itself, this book can help you get the most out of each dollar.

    A good mood enhancer

    A really nice 'light' book to brighten up your day or night. I only wish it had more listings of relevant stores...
