I'm someone who absolutely loves all kinds of fashion books, and I am always reading a fashion book. I want to share my knowledge on these books, no matter if they are photography books, books on designers, books with outfits or fashion sketches in them, or any other type of books on fashion. So read my reviews and feel welcome to give me tips on other good fashion books that I have not read yet!

Review: Gunn's Golden Rules - Life's Little Lessons for Making It Work

I am a huge Tim Gunn fan, I think he is amazing, and I love Project Runway as well, which is why I have read basically all Nina Garcia's books (which reminds me, I should really review those here as well), as well as at least one of Tim Gunn's previous books.

So I was super excited to find out that Tim Gunn actually had a new book come out, called Gunn's Golden Rules - Life's Little Lessons for Making It Work, and immediately got it.

And the book is definitely very Tim Gunn, with a lot of tips on how to make your life in general better, meaning the book is not only about fashion (but of course it is about that TOO). Gunn uses a lot of real life examples to illustrate his points on behaviour, attitude and more, which is nice, but at times the book is a bit too filled with name dropping, in my opinion, and not all the things Tim Gunn says about people in the book are all that nice, which was somewhat dissapointing, since he seems so nice on the show and otherwise. So I think he could definately left some of the more bitchier parts out, but as a whole, the book is really worth reading, especially if you are a fan of the show, but probably for anyone interested in manners and fashion in general too.

So I recommend the book, even though it is not my favorite book among the ones the Project Runway participants have published.
