Three of the Best: The Modern Woman\’s Guide To Everything is an indispensible handbook for every busy, modern woman. The authors, Candace Lewis and Margaret O\’Sullivan, have cleverly provided three of the best answers to any given question, problem, issue and so much more. Covering everything from healthy meals in fifteen minutes, to first aid in the home, to exercises to tone the body, to time savers, budget tips and to finding a lawyer, it offers three practical, well-researched choices and answers to almost any circumstance in a busy woman\’s life.
The guide is divided into seven sections – Fit, Beautiful, Peace, Fuel, Survival, Downtime and Stand Up â€“ and is incredibly easy to navigate through and use. With an index for quick finding, and some incredibly useful website addresses and phone numbers in each section, it\’s a surprise that it has taken so long for such a user-friendly, informative guide to hit Australian shelves.
I\’ve photocopied the â€˜standard sizing conversion chart\’ and placed a copy in my wallet â€“ so now every time I\’m shopping, I\’ll have a handy guide deciphering European shoe sizes and US and UK clothing sizes for me.Â That\’s the thing with this guide; it\’s just so incredibly useful.
Three of the Best is almost like having a best friend on hand â€“ she\’s full of wisdom, a few wisecracks, and a lot of sense. With personal stories scattered throughout the book, and some of the best advice on organising your household and maintaining your car, it\’s the kind of guide that inspires and motivates, rather than one that dictates. Its aim is to simplify your life, and it truly will.
