From the author of The Official Preppy Handbook comes a new take on the old world that Lisa Birnbach turned into an international best-selling phenomenon thirty years ago.

True Prep
looks at how the old guard of natural-fiber-loving, dog-worshipping, G&T-soaked preppies adapts to the new order of the Internet, cell phones, rehab, political correctness, reality TV and . . . polar fleece.
• Wardrobe: Recent prep brands we are forced to recognize. How to tell Casual Friday from, say, Saturday.
• Money: We never talk about it.
• Food: Does the Food Network mean we're going to have to cook? Bake? Now you're going too far.
• Scandals: Poor Mrs. Astor. When Mummy's plastic surgery goes terribly wrong. Rehab and the slammer: the new prep schools.
• We're outta here: When to name something after yourself, and when not. The right obituary. What to do with your dogs if you predecease them.
