From the Publisher:

In Jane Austen's Little Advice Book, Austen's own words are mixed with the fascinating facts of her biography and the times in which she lived, completing a lighthearted and loving look at this most enduring writer. Those who know Miss Austen's work only from screen adaptations should enjoy reading her actual, wonderful words; those who have loved her novels will enjoy rediscovering the brightest moments of her sparkling wit and vivid insight into human nature.

In these charmless, graceless, loud, hurried times, we desperately long for the serene voice of good sense, good humor and good manners. Never have we needed Jane Austen more.

Jane Austen's Little Advice Book is a celebration of the woman who is perhaps now the world's most famous female author, but who was almost completely unknown in her own lifetime. It is a fitting tribute to a woman whose only byline was: "By a Lady."
