About The Book

A charming, clever analysis of how women's personalities are reflected in their choice of handbags. Fully illustrated with colorful depictions of 40 different handbag styles, the text describes characteristics of the women who carry each one.

According to fashion expert Kathryn Eisman, to understand a woman, first understand her purse.

In How to Tell a Woman by Her Handbag, Eisman cleverly contends that fashions come and go, but a woman's handbag is eternal, forever revealing her nature--and just maybe her secrets. With forensic precision and cutting wit, Eisman helps women identify their own handbag personas as well as those of family, friends, and foes.

Thanks to How to Tell a Woman by Her Handbag, the next time you rub shoulders with Canvas Tote Lady or Decrepit Briefcase Lady or even Bamboo Cane Handle Lady, you'll be able to discern just what makes her tick. But you'll also recognize the bond common to women the world over--we're all bag ladies!
