    Fun and Cute!I have this book and have recommended it to ALL of my single girl friends. It’s cute and funny with a touch of a girl power attitude and imparts words of wisdom about being happy with yourself and taking advantage of the delights of being single (and there are quite a few!) rather than wallowing in being alone. Imogen Lloyd Webber offers some good advice to ANY girl, not just the single ones and I found so much advice that I have applied to my single life!

    Single Girl’s Essential KitI must be honest and admit that I’ve only read the UK version of this book, but when I saw it had come out in the US, I thought I had to let all you US single girls out there have my top tip for surviving single life: Buy this book!!!Imogen Lloyd Webber manages to be both very funny and very wise. She divides her book into chapters, each dealing with a different issue that a single girl might encounter on her epic journey through boyfriends, parents, friends, work etc etc etc. A book you can, as I did, read straight through in one sitting, or one to dip in and out of when you need a little friendly advice. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

    REALLY NEAT TO RELATE TO, FOUND IT HELPFULBeing the type of girl who doesnt put herself 1st enough in her own life to not get 3 “to the point where your bedridden for almost an entire week + call in 3 days in a row risking your own damn job” major heartaches right in a row, i found what was in these pages helpful. Most of all, how to move on, which is distance/space/time/no replying to his “i let you go cuz im dumb” ass. We are not always what another person wants or needs, doesnt make us lesser than the other girl he is with now and for sure shouldnt make us think less of ourself. We are unique. There are always the possibility to be in love and have a connection with more than one person these days, and thats what makes it so hard. Modern love will never be as it used to be, where you meet in a ballroom and are happy till you both die. that isnt entirely fantasy, it really used to be true. but with how our lives have to be lived now just to get what we need, its so hard to accept it when love just once again slams you into a wall and says “stay there!”…it hurts like a bitch. and there arent enough steps you can take to fully recover, there is no such thing as a 100% recovery from a heartache, but there are certain things u can surround urself with…like this book. whatever helps, no matter how silly. my sis got me this for christmas, its something i would have never bought for myself, maybe skimmed through it in the library. but i find parts of it are what i can relate to and look back over from time to time to help my “too many thoughts” stay in check. and to keep that smile on my face after everything. Adrea E Sherman. hope this helped someone out there 🙂

    AvoidI just received the book today and I already have it in an envelope to send back.There is nothing cute or funny in my opinion, just negative. Her view on family is extremely dysfunctional. My family and that of my single friends is hardly perfect, but unlike the author’s advice we don’t need to get drunk to be around them. Also, there is an attitude that if you do anything more than bump into your mother in a public place and you actually have a friendship, there is something wrong with you.Very negative and snarky British attitude.

    Loved this book!!I absolutely loved this book. There was so much truth to Imogen’s writing and her sense of humor had me laughing the whole way through. It’s nice to know that there are others like us out there.

    Not what I expectedIt’s pretty much an entire book of complaints about being single. There’s an entire section about how to write a resume and stuff, why that’s included I have no idea. Not what I expected…

    a survival guide for the young single urban femaleImmogen Lloyd Webber’s The Single Girl’s Survival Guide is a social tip guide for the young single woman.This book offers an interesting glimpse of the world of the young single urban female. This book explains a bit about my urban girl friends. Her experience with family is different than my own so I couldn’t really relate to it. As for the rest of the book, it was pretty good. Webber is British but she moved to the States, so it wouldn’t be suprising if she used her moving exprience in acclimating to a new environment in the States in writting this book.If you’re a social butterfly, this book might be remedial. If you’re a guy, totally skip this book. However, if you believe you’re socially lacking or lacking confidence in going on your own in an urban environment, this book might be for you.
