Ever wondered what went on behind the shoe seams at Jimmy Choo? If so, I highly suggest you add The Towering World of Jimmy Choo ($17), by Lauren Goldstein Crowe and Sagra Maciera de Rosen, to your queue. This book takes us on a journey through the brand's feeble beginnings in Hackney, London, to becoming one of the biggest shoe brands in the world.
