Publisher Comments:

On the runway of life, Tim Gunn is the perfect life coach. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andnbsp;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Youand#8217;ve watched him mentor talented designers on the hit television show andlt;Iandgt;Project Runwayandlt;/Iandgt;. Now the inimitable Tim Gunn shares his personal secrets for and#8220;making it workand#8221;and#8212;in your career, relationships, and life. Filled with delightfully dishy stories of fashionand#8217;s greatest divas, behind-the-scenes glimpses of andlt;Iandgt;Runwayandlt;/Iandgt;and#8217;s biggest drama queens, and never-before-revealed insights into Timand#8217;s private life, andlt;Iandgt;Gunnand#8217;s Golden Rules andlt;/Iandgt;is like no other how-to book youand#8217;ve ever read.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andnbsp;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;In the world according to Tim, there are no shortcuts to success. Hard work, creativity, and skill are just the beginning. By following eighteen tried-and-true principles, you can apply Timand#8217;s rules to anything you set your mind to. Youand#8217;ll learn why Tim frowns on displays of bad behavior, like the vitriolic outburst by Martha Stewartand#8217;s daughter about her motherand#8217;s name-brand merchandise. Youand#8217;ll discover the downfalls of divadom as he describes andlt;Iandgt;Vogueandlt;/Iandgt;and#8217;s Andrand#233; Leon Talley being hand-fed grapes and Anna Wintour being carried downstairs by her bodyguards. And youand#8217;ll get Timand#8217;s view on the backstabbing by one designer on andlt;Iandgt;Project Runway andlt;/Iandgt;and how it brilliantly backfired.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andnbsp;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Then there are his down-to-earth guidelines for making life betterand#8212;for yourself and othersand#8212;in small and large ways, especially in an age that favors comfort over politeness, ease over style. Texting at the dinner table? Wearing shorts to the theater? Not in Timand#8217;s book. Living a well-mannered life of integrity and character is hard work, he admits, but the rewards are many: being a good friend, being glamorous and attractive, and being a successand#8212; much like Tim himself!andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andnbsp;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;He is never one to mince words. But Tim Gunn is always warm, witty, wise, and wonderfully supportiveand#8212; just the mentor you need to design a happy, creative, and fulfilling life that will never go out of style.
