Reviews - What do our customers think?
Mildly entertaining but mostly fluff (and not the good kind)  Aug 8, 2008
I was expecting an easy summer read with some fun fact and useful tips. It certainly is an easy read, but not the kind that leaves you feelings sort of light and refreshed afterwards.

Most of the tips are quite standard. Many fall within the usual rules of etiquette or other well-known techniques like making others feel like they are the centre of attention. Others are completely impractical - I would love to get daily massages, keep a personal staff, have my sheets changed every day (or maybe not), but none of this is possible with the average person (can YOU afford Kiton?)

Finally, the none-too-subtle emphasis on finding rich, handsome men (tip on physical fitness: activities that put you in proximity to healthy, wealthy males are preferable) is pretty disappointing. Is that the point of being like Jackie? This book could have been witty and fun but instead is chatty, making use of the most annoying kind of chick-lit banter (with an unnecessary number of French words thrown in where common English words would have done.)

Upsides: the Jackie facts are interesting. There is no doubt she was well-bred and led an interesting and accomplished life. A good number of the tips are valid, if not necessarily new information.
Fun, surprising read  Apr 15, 2008
This was a lite read for fun and proved itself to be quite informative. Surprising
at times, too! I've admired Jackie's style and smart presence, but now see much more behind the icon. Kind of a gossipy biography, but still interesting and useful for style perks!
I Love This Book!  Feb 29, 2008
I absolutely LOVE this book! What a breath of fresh air and it truly is a handbook for anyone interested in "distinctive living." Reading it is informational, educational, and exciting all at the same time. It really does make you want to become a better person. It covers all aspects of life from decorating, to clothing, to relationships. I highly recommend this book and will definitely read it again, and again -as it is an excellent reference to style. It is a great gift idea, as well. Buy this book, you will definitely enjoy it!
Interesting Unknown Insights about Jackie O  Feb 8, 2008
I like this book. But I like Jackie and I like books that read like this. Cute, put in a guest suite for people to flip through. Reads less like an instruction book and more like a string of tiny antidotes around a specific topic. Some great stories about how Jackie dealt with her philandering men. Also, some interesting dating tactics.
How to Live With Distinction  Feb 4, 2008
For a generation raised on Britney Spears and Hannah Montana, this book could be a godsend. For the rest of us, it's a reminder that we are more than how we look, with some helpful advice on how to look as good as possible without sacrificing health or bank account. How to arrange your life so that you aren't a burden on anyone and a gift to those you choose. How not to be taken for granted. Exercise and fashion. Saving money. Raising children. Furnishing your mind. What nobless oblige is, and how to practice it: something today's young women get little exposure to in the guides that tell them how to be seductive. In short, there's a lot of good advice in one place. I confess I enjoyed every page.
