1. How to Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World mentors women who want to live “with style, class and grace.” Unlike a self help book, Jordan Christy has written a reference manual of modern etiquette that draws on the wisdom of old-fashioned advice.  This book inspires the reader to demonstrate self respect from how she spends her time to the people she spends time with, from her words to her actions.

4. The Bombshell Manual of Style is a treasure from Lauren Stover. The book defines the classic bombshell in a playful tone. Stover avoids giving the reader precise advice on how one can become a bombshell, instead she paints a glamorous picture of a woman who is sensuous, sophisticated, and above all else, polite.

5. The Skinny Rules authored by Board Certified Sports Specialist Dietitian, Molly Morgan, is the antithesis of a diet book. If you want to lose weight fast, get slim quick, or any other euphemism for crash diet, this book is not for you. “The Skinny Rules” is written for the woman who wants to adopt a healthy lifestyle that includes proper nutrition.

6. The Art and Power of Being a Lady is not about being a doormat, a bully, or vulgar. Noelle Cleary and Dini Von Mueffling champion a woman who can be considerate, assertive, and sexy. The authors advocate that a lady can be found in women from a variety of disciplines–from athletes to pop stars to politicians. This book is relevant for ladies of all ages.
