I enjoyed reading this book. Tim Gunn is exstremely witty. Also, he doesn't put the reader down. He encourages the reader to in his own words "Make it Work." I learned a lot about myself from this book.

I really like Tim Gunn and would love it if he came to my house and went through my closet!

Having said that, I was not super-impressed with this book. I think Tim comes across better on tv than in a book. I was somewhat bored with this book (and I LOVE fashion).

You will pretty much enjoy this book if you like to read books with Tim Gunn's voice and overall Tim Gunn'ness overshadowing everything.

Not so much a "Guide" book which is understandable since you need to write a book that will help the "masses" so his advice was pretty much generic and something that you can read in any fashion-ish magazine which has a section titled "5-10 basic things you need in your closet" that will never go out of style.

Also if you are reading this to acquire fashion knowledge (which means you have none) you will need a fashion dictionary and google to look up any terms you don't know or the people he listed as "fashion mentors" because most likely you will have no clue who they are...as most of them are not with the living or have "dumb-downed" fashion lines at your local Kohls, Walmart, etc.

If Tim Gunn writes a third book...or even has one out already...I might not be so quick to pick it up...as much as I enjoy watching him, his writing style is just as starched as his shirts...lol, I made a fashion joke!

Very disappointed by this book. I am a big fan of Tim Gunn and Project Runway, and I thought this book was very generic, not memorable, and disappointing.
