Tim Gunn is best known as beloved mentor to the competing designers on TV’s Project Runway. Throughout his work in both fashion and television, as well as daily life in New York, he has been exposed to quite a bit of bad behavior. He, however, believes that decency is possible. Gunn’s Golden Rules offers simple principles to “make it work” in your life. More than just a modern-day etiquette book, he gives glimpses of jaw-dropping scenes of entitlement by well-known personalities. Even better, Gunn also shares chapters of his personal story, and his earnest perspective offers warmth, wit, and wisdom. In times such as these, we need a truth-teller who admits that integrity and character are hard work, but who reminds us that the rewards are many.
