Despite the fact that this is a British book, it applies, I think, to readers all over the world. (I'm from Manila) It's not just about shopping, but about where to find what is, in the author's opinion, the best of everything - from chocolates to beds, hangover cures, beauty products and much, much more. Where possible, there are websites, store addresses and phone numbers. India Knight's style is very easy to read (think Nigella Lawson)and she often makes her readers laugh out loud. Particularly helpful is the chapter on presents, as well as the one on the perfect way to apply foundation. This is an ideal present for any woman over 15.
