Get the 2nd edition; the first is terrible. There are a lot of misprints and some sections are completely duplicated exactly.

I have given this book to all my nieces and nephews and other young people. It gives excellent tips and hints about how to avoid social mistakes and how to feel more at ease in social situations. It is very easy to read, with a good format, and highlights special tips to remember. It is a good preparation for high school students and those going off to college as well as young people who are entering the business world for the first time. A good summary of the basics.

It seems like a no-brainer that people should say please and thank you and excuse me, but how often do we all have the opposite experience? This book covers the basics of etiquette along with other scenarios that you might not run into but once in a lifetime.. Ways to handle important business dinners/meeting, gifting, disagreements, and more are covered in an easy and readable format. No boring lists or feeling like you are reading something written by surly old school marm with a bun so tight she can't blink. Good reading for anyone who wants to present their best front in any social situation.

Originally I researched a number of "manners" books and then gleefully purchased this one for a friend's grandson whose table manners were below terrible. Suggested I was not trying to be unpleasant and then suggested he would be invited to a girl's house for dinner and would thereafter wonder why the girl's mother would never ask him back. Or he would lose a job after a lunch or dinner interview and never, ever know why. It was stuff he needed to know that would give him a decided advantage, because many, many young people don't learn manners these days.

It is written to make logical sense. It is not just a list of rules as several of the others were. Position your gift as "a whole undercurrent of standards on which you may be judged but may know noting about" and apologize for the inappropriate judgment of the title. In my experience and having been so positioned it has been read cover to cover by high school age people and those going off to college. One mom told me her son -- headed for a prestige university on a full scholarship, by the way -- had kept in in the bathroom and often approached his dad with, "Did you know ... ?". It was the core of several family discussions.

Following the "you will be judged according to standards you know nothing about" I just gave a copy to an immigrant family acclimating to this country. Have read and reread it myself and learned more every time.

Here's one book everyone should have. It takes the guesswork out of situations that one is not sure about. I've given it to several students who had low self-esteem to show them that most of what they were doing was correct, and what they didn't know, they can learn.
