Overview

"If a man has good legs, the rest of the body will follow; if a girl has good legs, men will follow." —Rudolf Friml 

"You can be as old as the hills," Jane Merrill's mother advised her at a young age, "and still show a little leg." Mom knew best. After all, she'd modeled for Vogue and other fashion magazines and considered good leg care a great investment. Jane took note—actually lots of them as she grew up and saw what great legs can do for any woman—until she had an encyclopedic file on how to get great legs and keep them at any age.

Merrill's Great Legs! shares that wealth of leg care and fitness knowledge. The book covers everything from traditional and home treatments to once-proprietary spa secrets and high-tech leg care techniques. The author delivers this gold mine of "limb-formation" in a fun and easy-to-grasp style, as one girlfriend passing on beauty tips to another. A healthy combination of quotations, photographs, fun facts, and hip shopping tips makes Great Legs! a must-read for all women.

Great Legs! includes home methods of hair removal, self-tanning and blemish-disguising tips, leg-pampering recipes, leg and feet exercises, dos and don'ts of cosmetic surgeries, and much more. Merrill taps a team of exercise and medical professionals, such as the chief of surgery at Tufts/New England Medical Center, to back up her information. This book struts!
