1962, 1st edition; Prentice-Hall publishers, New Jersey; hardbound in ivory boards; no dust jacket; wonderful black and white drawings; quite good conditon of book with no markings; cover has minor foxing and minor fading along spine; I wish I had this book in high school...
As I read this book, I couldn't help but hope that the men who read it will, with Jon's help, learn something about the female of the species that they didn't know before - something of her secret desires, fears, ambitions. I'm equally hopeful that women who read All About Girls may gain new insight into themselves and realize that a man, even one as appreciative of beauty as Jon Whitcomb is, wants them to be not only something special to look at, but something special to admire.
In writing about women, Jon has always been honest, and honesty is after all the truest form of kindness. It is because of men like Jon Whitcomb that we women are better able "to se ourselves as others see us."
