I live with a real-life preppy (Prep School: Groton - University: Yale) and I can vouch for how close this hits home! Every time his mother signs a card or letter "Love, Mummy" I giggle and he doesn't know why...

Everything you could possibly need to know about the preppy lifestyle is contained in this book. Presented as a work of humor, still it reads like the real deal. It explores the preppy lifestyle from childhood to retirement, describing the right clothes, shoes, pets, schools, sports, clubs, interests, the right mates, it covers it all. Even though it was written it the late 1970s, I expect it is still relevant and true in its revelation of what it means to be preppy.
