Mary Young is principal of the Mary Young Model School and Agency in London, organizer and chief instructress of courses on Poise, Dress and Personality for the London County Council and consultant to many schools and businesses. This, her first book, is witty but extremely wise, superbly illustrated and packed with useful hints and sound and helpful advice."
