Title: 211 Things a Clever Girl Can Do
Author: Bunty Cutler
A possible alternate title to this book might be "The Dangerous Book for Young Women." Inside are helpful essays on "How to escape a vicious swarm of bees" or "How to descend a staircase in high heels." You will be as impressed by its real-world knowledge as you will be humored by its tongue-in-cheekiness. My favorite entry so far is "How to lose six pounds in six hours," which includes recommendations such as "blow your nose" and "shave your head." A must-give from every girlfriend, to every girlfriend.
