Mary Giuseffi sets the tone for her book, Straight Up With a Twist: Your Cocktail Personality Guide to Finding Love and Romance, right in the dedication; “This book is for all the boys who set me up on a platter… ” She goes on to thank guys like Bubble Boy and Margin Call Man for helping her figure out how she could and should, “create my own inner mixology and create a recipe for my life that was fit for a queen!”
There is no doubt about it, this book is written by a woman, for women. As a man, especially one who makes his living writing about being a man, there were times I felt as if I had stumbled into the Ladies room; I had an urge to lower my eyes, mumble an apology and back out slowly. But in the end, Giuseffi’s direct, deep, and witty take on what it really means to be a woman provides an amazing range of insights that I just could not resist.
Mary Giuseffi has an interesting background for writing a book of this sort. A quick trip to her Web sites reveals that she is a former Ford model, she is a fashion consultant with a client list including Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, and she is a relationship expert. She is slim and beautiful, and as comfortable appearing on The Today Show as most of us would be sipping a latte in Starbucks.
