I think it's one of the best purchases I have ever made. That may be true for some people. But for me it was not. I felt I was stuck in a fashion rut. I'm 22 years old, almost 23, about to be married to a graphic designer, and I feel like I look like I just walked off my high school campus. I'm a jeans and tank top kind of girl

Fashion guru Tim Gunn details his new book, his hopes for American fashion and what he expects to see in this season's 'Project Runway. His new book is a how-to in wardrobe and apparel, a self-help guide for creating an individual style, and how exactly to make that style work. He's got a new television show out ("Tim Gunn's Guide to Style," also on Bravo) based on that premise-a makeover series that will school the clueless on the art of dress, groom and poise.

Once again, the series uses Gunn's book, Tim Gunn: A Guide to Quality Taste and Style, as a manual. Gunn and Monahan won't be making anyone over – with tough love and guidance, they'll help people make themselves over. I want every woman to achieve her style zenith, said Gunn. Looking good takes hard work and commitment, but this series makes it fun. Each of the women I worked with discovered her own signature look, with a little coaching. My hope is that we’ll inspire others to achieve their own stylish identities.

I really liked this book. I'm sure you could find a more comprehensive volume that would cover more territory, and in more depth. But that's not why I like Tim Gunn. I like him because he's witty and erudite and that's a hard combination to find in fashion. He's not rude or sarcastic, he simply tells it like it is. He has pointed comments to make on contemporary American life, such as the tendency to wear sweat suits when traveling, pajamas in public, the ubiquitous and not always appropriate flip flop, and the equally ubiquitous bared midriff and Crack of Doom.

There's the usual list of wardrobe and personal care must-haves (trench-ish coat, boots, occasion-appropriate evening wear, perfume, exfoliant and moisturizer) and also a list of must-see films.

One quirk that I noticed he dropped in his most recent book, "Gunn's Golden Rules" is that he speaks in the royal "we." I have no way of knowing whether he was referring only to himself, or to his co-editor, Kate Moloney. It was quaintly old-fashioned in this book, but I'm glad he dropped it for his autobiographical book. Hopefully it won't make a comeback.

You can almost hear Tim Gunn's distinct voice as you read this book. His thoughts translate as well on paper as they do on television.

In the "Who You Are" chapter he sets you at ease with his characteristic warmth as he tells you that you are who you are for a reason and he is here to help you accentuate your positive features and mitigate the negative ones. He recognizes that there is a connection between inner and outer beauty and encourages you to think hard about who you are.

This book doesn't contain lots of details about what to wear or not to wear. He zeroes in on the basics - he provides a top ten list of wardrobe essentials (he convinced me that ballet flats are necessary, for instance) - and doesn't overwhelm the reader. There is a chapter devoted to posture and walking. A chapter devoted to style icons ranging from Katharine Hepburn to Kate Moss to Patti Smith. Instructions for how to dress for various special occasions. There's a chapter about the challenge of finding the right fit. There's much more to style than merely the clothes and his book addresses this very well.

The most helpful section is the one that addresses Creeping Closet Syndrome. He gives specific instructions about editing your closet and every woman should heed them. The New York apartment in which he lived for 15 years had seven linear feet of closet space so he knows how to edit.

He praises stores like H&M and encourages quality over quantity. Every woman would do well to read his chapter on shopping before succumbing to the urge to go on a shopping spree. He says, "The most important part of your expedition should take place before you leave home. The salient question to ask is: 'Why am I shopping today?'"

I finished this book with regret, wishing for more, which is how I imagine I would feel after finishing a conversation with him over lunch. Now, I'm off to buy some ballet flats...

I admire Tim Gunn's classy fashion style and practical advice, but IMO his book could have been better designed and executed.

For example, had I been Mr. Gunn's editor, I would have suggested that he use photographs to help present his case. Reading about how to develop one's sense of quality, taste and style is one thing; illustrating those traits with actual before-and-after examples is quite another. I think this would have given his words more emphasis and greater meaning -- and perhaps save a few more trees.

Still, this is an informative read by a master of fashion for those of us who want to expand our knowledge of the art of presentation, and thus increase our self-confidence and enjoyment of life. We are so worth it.

I looked at this book a couple of times at the bookstore but passed it by because it didn't have a lot of glitzy photographs. Then I ordred it anyway. To my surprise, it is chock full of great advice. Tim Gunn writes with humor and humility. He NEVER speaks down to the reader. In fact, he's very encouraging as he tells the reader to celebrate our flaws and to not be so hard on ourselves. He doesn't insist that everyone run out and buy the lastest fad, in fact, he discourages it. He urges simplifying one's wardrobe and continuously emphasizes scale and silhouette. Just because an article is a great piece doesn't mean it is right for everyone of every shape and size. Mr. Gunn discusses quality vs quantity...but he's always on the lookout for a bargain. He touts buying those few really great pieces and filling in with basics from you local discount store....IF you can find good quality for a good price. All in all, I was very happy with this book and the advice given by its author.
