Better than Beauty A Guide to Charm characters Ø eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Read Better than Beauty A Guide to Charm While beauty makes a first impression charm lasts a lifetime It's the perfect simplicity of manners a winsome blend of kindness confidence and grace Better than Beauty resuscitates the long lost art of charm with hints tips and tricks guaranteed to boost our charm uotient First published in 193. As a staunch feminist I expected to find this vintage self help book ridiculous and hilarious because I thought it would be full of ideas about how to catch a man and develop my womanly charms I was pleasantly surprised to find that although the description makes it sound like the Cosmopolitan of the thirties this book is full of relevant and interesting advice for every woman I give it three and a half starsSure the first half of the book dwells on physical appearance for far too long but it makes sense that careful grooming and personal hygiene are desired in every era I like that the two authors of this book sound remarkably advanced in their beliefs and values they have progressive ideas about race and gender and their witticisms liven up the pages of this short engaging book Examples include Better a few extra pounds than a shrewish disposition and Your face can t look serene your conversation can t be bright your personality can t radiate if your feet hurtFull of simple truisms and nonjudgmental advice this was an enjoyable read
