Lisa Birnbach, written by Jonathan Roberts, Carol McD. The book addresses “preppy” life from birth to old age, lending understanding to the cultural aspects of “preppy” life.

In general, elementary and secondary school, college, and the young adult years receive the most attention. Coverage lessens during the book’s latter chapters. The book was first published in 1980 by Workman Publishing. The Official Preppy Handbook explains and satirizes what it takes to be a preppy person in the 1980s, parodying the lifestyle of the WASP elite. Birnbach reveals through an ironic tone where preps go to school, where they summer, what brands they wear, and how they decorate their homes. Birnbach divides The Official Preppy Handbook into 7 sections, each devoted to a different period of the preppy lifestyle.
