A great title for what is in fact a practical, sensible and highly informative guide to life, spotted with humour and some charming asides. It’s a great gift for any girl, fun to read and in doing so to pick all sorts of practical information on everything from how to understand politics, send an attachment or buy a house to beauty, dress and style hints. I particularly like the various sections of advice from the famous like Stella McCartney or Kylie Minogue, however it does seem to have some serous gaps, for instance how to look after your shoes!
