Publisher's Summary

“Wake up, Muffy. We’re back.”

From Lisa Birnbach, the author of The Official Preppy Handbook - and designer Chip Kidd - comes a whole new take on the prep world that Birnbach turned into an international best-selling phenomenon 30 years ago.

True Prep is a contemporary look at how the old guard of natural-fiber-loving, dog-worshipping, G&T-soaked preppies adapt to the new order of things. Birnbach considers the prep attitude towards money (ambivalent), schools (good investment), wardrobe (now your clothes fit), work (some careers will never be prep), decorating (ask mummy), scandal (including rehab and prison), and food and drink (with some classic recipes for both). She also looks at weekends (and what to do to get asked back), entertaining, sports (including sailing and shopping), weddings, etiquette, the Internet and electronic gadgetry, political correctness, reality TV, and... polar fleece. And last but not least: a do-it-yourself eulogy.

    "Preppy basics and prep then now"

    It was a fun book to listen to and a how to introduction to the preppy world. I would recommend this book to any wanting to read a preppy themed book.

    "Rambling"

    If you're looking for a couple hours of pointless rambling about what the author believes is a "preppy" and that make believe world, then this book is for you. If you're actually a preppy, or just a human being with a mind, you may want to steer clear of this one. I loved her seminal work on "preppy". This one is a miss.

    "I really need to start being more careful"

    I’ve checked and unfortunately there is no federal law against being cutesy-wotsey in writing style and, I’m told, therefore the authors cannot be deported for churning this pile of words out and I doubt that Audible will return my money.
