As the other reviewers have said, I too found errors with the editing. I remember two words being lumped into one for example (they forgot the spacing between the words).

That aside, I did like how the book had a compendium of notable shoe designers and their works. I also liked the organisation - you get shoes classified according to style and/or function, and how they were first conceived in the fashion world.

I think this book did a decent research but sucked with the editing. It feels like it's been written as a college research paper. There are some errors in selected pages like the one that said Imelda had 160,000 pairs of shoes but in another paragraph, it said 1,600 pairs of shoes. So... yep, could use some more work.
