This book looked older than 1994. I would have sworn late 1980s, tops. The advice is not that bad and mostly common sense stuff. The illustrations are awful and that alone would make it weed-able, in my opinion. (I can just imagine my teen patrons rolling eyes at this one.)
Ladies, I encourage you to take a look at how to rate with guys. Obviously, we need to all examine our “ladylike” behavior. (The book doesn’t give us details on what that behavior might mean.)
Submitter: Recently my colleague showed me her copy of [this book] and I immediately thought of your website. When I looked at the cover I thought it was a cougar training manual. What’s written inside is just as precious as the cover. It seems that Ellen Peck was a younger version of Helen Gurley Brown and even includes some of Gurley Brown’s recipes for breakfast beverages for when you feel gaggy.
Holly: Hippest? Grooviest? Oh boy. I am cracking up at the cougar training manual bit – the woman (teenage girl??) on the cover does look rather old to be picking up teenage boys, doesn’t she? Or is that Ellen Peck herself on the cover?
