O knihe

A gorgeous facsimile edition of Agnes M. Miall`s classic 1916 volume, this is a charming resource for the modern-day `girl on her own`. Truly a `Guide to Everything`, the straight-talking Mrs Miall offers timeless advice on a minefield of everyday dilemmas from how to be successful in your career: `When dealing with employers or fellow-workers who are men, try to forget that you are a woman`; to how to avoid unwelcome advances, `walk along briskly and purposefully, not staring at anyone; loitering and aimless strolling are to be avoided. If spoken to in spite of precautions, a decided answer or a cold stare will usually end the annoyance`. With instructive gems on every page, this delightful piece of retro is a revealing window onto the life of a single woman during the first world war, and at the same time a hilarious reminder that sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same!
