I recently bought this book for the second time after discussing it with a friend. I originally read it in the 80's and wished I could do all those little things that make life together beautiful, but I had three children instead. Now that they are grown, I have the time to read this book again and incorporate the tips that Alexandra Stoddard so gracefully recommends. I enjoyed reading it again and even purchased a copy for my friend who was as delighted as I am.

The book was delivered pretty quickly. It was in very good condition. Just as described by seller.

This book is mostly about how to relate to those we love, beginning with ourselves. In the process the author gives advice on creating a comforting home, balancing obligations, and good etiquette. It is a great guide for learning how to live and behave more graciously. It is quite comprehensive and addresses nurturing yourself, your partner, children, relatives, friends, mentors, neighbors and others. If you follow the suggestions of this book you have every aspect of your life covered! Her suggestions are very practical and it is all dispensed in a warm, easy to understand way. You do get the feeling that the author is speaking mostly to middle-class American white women. A lot of her suggestions for happiness are on the materialistic side. There are lots of gifts, vacations, bouquets, opera tickets, fine dining, and nice clothes. Yes, you can be happy if you have those things, that is why a study shows that people with more than $75,000 a year are happier than those with less. But that is not reality for a lot of people. However, I agree that people who love themselves treat themselves well and pay attention to their environment. And there are a lot of ways to do that without blowing your budget. I do think it's a bit much though when she boasts of how modestly she lives in a Park Avenue apartment in Manhattan with part time housekeeping help and has eating out as a "passionate hobby." I think this book is good if you are looking for creative ways to add love and fun to your life. It will not help you though with conflicts with your loved ones, dealing with hardships, or existential crises. Money and nice things won't help for those. But having a positive attitude, taking control of your environment, and maximizing your happiness within your budget are all good things to remember.

I am a newlywed...married 3 months and I found this book to put alot of things in perspective for me. Ms. Stoddard encourages you to take time out and invest quality time in YOURSELF, which I have always believed to be important, I just didn't know how to convince my husband! This book helped me find those words! Once you have yourself taken care of, then you can concentrate on your relationship and it will THRIVE! My only complaint is Ms. Stoddard writes as if we ALL live in Manhattan and drink cappucinos everyday...I found her comments like that throughout the book to be annoying and assuming. Overall, the book makes sense....and has made me a more relaxed person!

Alexandra Stoddard has become a sort of guru to my husband and me over the years. Her advice is inspirational, and she is full of suggestions to add beauty to your life in many different ways, some simple, some involving more commitment. Reading her books, and this one in particular, has changed how we view our home and our relationships. The added "Grace Notes" on every page are culled from a wide variety of sources and never cease to be interesting. I have given Ms. Stoddard's books to many, many friends and family.

I bought this book for a friend that has had some difficulties in her marriage these last few years. I am hopeful that it will help her.
