A stylishly smart collection of practical advice for the busy modern woman

With information on entertaining, etiquette, housekeeping, basic home repair, decorating, sex, and beauty, this indispensable book has everything today's young woman should know-but may not! The Modern Girl's Guide to Life is a collection of all the helpful tips and secrets that get passed on from generation to generation, but many of us have somehow missed. It's full of practical, definitive advice on the basics -- the day-to-day necessities like finding a bra that fits, balancing a checkbook, making a decent cup of coffee, and hemming a pair of pants. Modern Girl guru Jane Buckingham includes loads of savvy counsel to help us feel more refined, in charge, and together as we navigate the rocky terrain that is twenty-first-century womanhood.

Summary: Great for college graduates just starting out
Comment: I've had this book since my junior year of college and have found it to be an enormously helpful book. From its collection of quick and tasty recipes to when to splurge/save when building up a wardrobe to the rules of golf (which I needed to learn quickly for a tournament I recently attended), this book has it all. As I make the transition into the "working world", I have used this book to help me balance my checkbook, buy my first car and even decorate my apartment. This is a great book to skim through on a lazy Sunday afternoon as well as keep beside the bed for quick reference.

Jane Buckingham realizes that life, both hers and her readers, is never going to be perfect and does not try to instill a Martha Stewart like quest for domestic perfection into readers. Rather, she encourages us to blend splurging with thriftiness, authenticity with who-would-have-known-these-were-McDonald's-french-fries and optimism with a healthy dose of realism. Ultimately she shows that no matter what your budget or lifestyle is, you can live well and not break the bank doing it.

Some reviewers might deride her for offering what should be "common sense" but with some of the antics that go on in today's world, I think we could all benefit from a quick Common-Sense 101 review session. That said, the majority of her advice and tips go beyond mere common sense.
