Although New York City investment banker Duffy admits he has not yet found "the right rich girl" for matrimony, he claims that many such women are his "closest friends and confidantes." He opens this book with "clues" for identifying and understanding their tastes, interests and hobbies ("For some rich girls shopping becomes more than a hobbyit's closer to a profession"). After a geographical briefing (including Bryn Mawr, Grosse Pointe and Tuxedo Park) he offers tips on parents ("Never argue with Daddy"), the six major events in a rich girl's life (from "The Death of Nanny" to "Meeting You") and sources for introductions and sex ("This, unfortunately, will be a short chapter"). There are also many lists here, including "The Classic Horse Show Events" and an "Honor Roll" of poor-boy overachievers (Chuck Robb, Prince Philip, Claus von Bulow) who have married "very, very rich girls." This shopping guide chronicles the affluent with affection and wit, providing a wealth of information on what he terms a "profitable and enjoyable adventure."
