Honey Money shows how men and women can do better in the workplace and life by boosting their attractiveness. Why are some people a success at everything? Why do doors open for them wherever they go? The answer, Catherine Hakim shows, is the power of erotic capital: a magic combination of attractiveness and charisma that is at the heart of how we work, live and conduct our relationships. She reveals why erotic capital is just as influential as how rich, clever or well-connected you are in life - often more so. And how reading this book can help you boost your potential. 'Should be read out to young girls because it states that you can be a feminist, you can be strong and independent and clever, and you can wear a nice frock and high heels while you do this' Bryony Gordon, Daily Telegraph
