More interesting from the point of view of getting to know how shops work than for the information here. A book more suited to a younger audience than me, but possibly for someone looking for a new look this would be a good place to start. Advises on where to look in particular for certain looks, so possibly if you were looking to expand your range this would be good. However it's one for the shopper not the shopping avoider (like me).It also goes through the year noting when new ranges are due and when sales tend to be due as well. With some very good advice on complaining and what level of service is acceptable, this is a book that should be read by those working in the industry.I also think it would be a suitable book for people looking to move to England (or indeed Ireland, as much of the advice translates well) to get an idea of where to shop and what's available.A negative point is the fact that there actually isn't all that much text. It's well illustrated but the font is almost double normal!
