Read full description of the books:
I liked the parts of this book that detailed girly things: how to walk in high heels (obviously), how to pack for a vacation, how to accessorize, how to behave like a lady in social circumstances, how to throw a dinner party. It's written in a sort of chick-lit voice, which can be rather enjoyable if it isn't overdone. I like this sort of thing for the same reasons that I enjoy fluffy girly movies; they're bright and colourful and good distractions.
That said, I think it tried a little too hard to be the girls' manual for everything. Some of the stuff early on I found actually rather illuminating, but then they started trying to give tips on how to change a tire (short version: look helpless and a man will stop to help you, which actually does work even if you aren't TRYING to look helpless and know damn well how to change your own tire). While I appreciate that Morton is trying to keep up with the "classy lady who can't cook and can't do handyman things" facade, I still can't shake the third-wave feminist in me who ardently believes that every woman ought to know how to change her tires/oil (even if it gets her dirty). I'd be alright if it just mentioned how to do these things in CASE one needs to, but it didn't. That, combined with the assumption of TOTAL mechanical incompetency on the part of ladies worldwide, made it end on a disappointing note for me.
