Lessons from a Role Model are the fastest way to learn

It is wise advice that the best way to improve one's sense of etiquette and polish is to identify someone you admire and learn by their example. In the world of savoir faire and diplomacy, Jackie was known for her style and grace. A saint she was not but in pure terms of manners ... she was known for them. So in the manners department she is one to watch, along with Queen Rania of Jordan, Queen Noor of Jordan, and modern class acts such as Natalie Portman and Kiera Knightley. Jackie belongs to an era where manners were held in much higher esteem and counted for something. Sometimes the old school is worth keeping current.

Fun, smart and classy just like Jackie

The authors keep this book very entertaining while providing valuable insight into Jackie's life and helpful ideas to make our own lives more intriguing. The book is a fun read that you won't want to put down. It offers a whole new perspective on Jackie and tells the reader how they can add more elegance and diplomacy into their own lives. It is a definate must read for anyone who likes Jackie but also for anyone wants to add a little pizazz into their lives. Enjoy!

A Good Introduction

Having grown up slightly too young for all the Jackie hype, I have always been curious to know what was behind it all. This book is a great way to learn about all the mystique behind the woman (while also learning how to bring that mystique into your own life). It has an easy-to-read colloquial style that is engaging and funny. I recommend it to anyone wondering about the faux-pas in your own life, or curious about Jackie's.

A Wonderful Original And Funny Read

When I heard the title, I couldn't wait to open the book. I expected further insight into one of the most fascinating people of the last century. I got that and much more. Thanks to the witty and charming portrayal offered up by the authors, I discovered new shades of Jackie's appeal. It was a fun read that delivered the Jackie I really wanted to know. A woman of style and substance who speaks to real life issues of people today through the playful and savvy intrepration of the authors. I laughed out loud, took notes too -- and this coming from a guy.

Live a Distinctive Life Using Jackie As Your Role Model

This book isn't about trying to BE Jackie; it's about living your own best, most elegant life, and doing it with dignity and style. The authors are clearly Jackie fans (though they don't hesitate to point out her shortcomings and bad habits), and they respectfully apply a sort of "Jackie-meter" to all sorts of topics, such as: grooming, style, makeup, lifestyle, money, men, etc. They also include some personal tidbits about Jackie's life, which, at least to this reader, were interesting. I didn't find the book at all "gossipy" (as one of the editorial reviews called it), but rather, I found it a respectful tribute to an icon who was obviously admired by the women who wrote this guide.
