Publisher Comments:

For centuries, the seeds sown by advertising to beguile women have fallen on fertile ground. The sell has been soft-to create a feeling of promise. Then, as now, it has been essential to make the product unforgettable, superior, one that outshines all the others-yet, somehow, within reach.
