of what etiquette is all about. For her, it is a practical system of
applied ethics, designed to help people get along in a world that
doesn't always make it easy. The book covers a wide variety of
topics, from the ancient, i.e., table manners and how to use all that
silverware, to modern, as in, "Is it OK to send thank-you notes via
email?" (By the way the answer is NO!) This book is funny and clever
and very, very useful for all sorts of situations. The chapter on
workplace etiquette could justify a whole book on its own.
My only wonder is whether she writes her own questions or not. Some are too fantastic to be credible, such as the hostess who stores marbles in her medicne cabinet to catch peekers red-handed. Anyway, read it and see for yourself.
