Jane Austen's Guide to Life playfully and poignantly examines Austen's life and vels for the timeless advice that still applies for today's women. Austen may t understand texting or tweeting or platform heels, but as an astute student of human nature, she can surely teach us an awful lot about ourselves--and we might just be surprised by what she has to say.
