This handy little guide makes etiquette accessible for the modern lady. Being a lady doesn't mean requiring smelling salts or using bland flowery language all the time. It's about handling a crisis with grace, turning people down with polite elegance, and yes, even swearing - with class.
Simple enough for young readers, yet relevant enough for Grown Women who like the sound of the word Lady, this is among the best etiquette books for today.
I knew this book was great at this very moment: I've been reading a lot of books on ladylike behavior (Emily Post, Miss Manners, guides to table settings, parties, etiquette in different formal/semiformal settings, etc) which have all been immensely helpful - I recommend you read these as well for traditional manners and other info! - but this book cast a whole new (alarming) light when I was watching my usual "trash" reality TV. Suddenly, after reading the description of how a woman has integrity, acts with grace, always says "please" and "thank you," gives everyone the benefit of the doubt and behaves gracefully, always giving a smile even when she's "mad" (she takes a deep breath, counts to ten and lets it roll off her shoulders, not stooping to their level), I was instantly disgusted by the behavior of the women I saw on these shows that once before had entertained me. Their behavior was certainly unladylike. Something just clicked. Can't necessarily put it into words, but I recommend this book indeed.
