K.K latest fashions

the devil wears - PRADA
This book is amazing in all ways, it's a fashionable but comedy book. I mean what does a women want more than that?
Olivia

Excellent
This book might take a little while to develop, however once it does get to the main plot it proves an excellent read. As a reader a person can laugh and feel frustrated along with the narrator, Andy. She provides an inside look into the fashion world, but also what it is like to work for a boss from Hell. Weisberger does a great job with this book.

I think that Lauren Weisberger did an incredible job. The book is hilarious and I have enjoyed every minute of it!!!!!!!

As an executive assistant (way outside of fashion) I can so relate to the insanity. I love that book. Its original, fun, easy to read AND it is ever so true.
I will give copies to my exec collegues for christmas.
Unbelievable but true: none of that stuff is exaggerated, moreover: It happens around the globe in every business.
I feel in such good company. Thanks!

Having been personal assistant 3+ years to a woman executive in another (non-fashion) industry, what I took from this book wasn't the "insider detail" about fashion. Though the book's "in the moment" descriptions (including name-dropping of both "haute" faskion and today's "famous") makes it a fun, fast and easy read - perfect for summer (and easy to envision on the Big Screen - wouldn't Hugh Grant make a great Christian, with the same brown curl on his forehead) - what I enjoyed was how Lauren Weisberger NAILED the experience of working for a demanding female boss. If I'd read it 4 years ago, I'd even have implemented The Bulletin - it answered how best to record the hundreds of phone calls, requests and To-Do's we were expected to manage every week! There's nothing "unreal" about how Miranda rattled off her demands in stacatto fashion - my boss did the same thing! I considered buying several copies of the book and giving them to friends and family who didn't understand what I was going through at the time. Frankly, once you've lived in that world, you realize it isn't YOU who was being self-centered and selfish when you "ignored" your friends. It was them, ever unable to understand what complete, total exhaustion and constrant battering does to a human spirit. A year later, in a new job I love - I'm still healing from the experience! But, OH, did I learn a lot. GREAT work, Lauren W.!!!

I really enjoyed this book, I would highly reccomend it. It kept me laughing for a long time. It's a nice e.asy read
Kymber

This book was hysterical. "Andrea's" sarcastic wit combined with "Miranda's" ridiculous behavior was a perfect match. I often found myself laughing outload only to look up and find people looking at me. The book was a quick read that should make anyone else feel better about their own boss/job.
Ilana

I thought this book was incredible. i barely ever read books but this one i could not put down form the minute I started readinit . It does potray many bosses form all differnt types of companies in different industires.
