This book of manners covers all the traditional rules of etiquette such as which fork to use at a dinner with several courses and how to r.s.v.p to an invitation, as well as new ones that reflect modern times such as the difference between a save-the-date announcement and an actual invitation and which requires a response, or whether it is ever appropriate to send a thank you via email instead of a handwritten note.
I especially appreciated the chapter on teaching manners to children, something that sadly doesn't seem to be as much of a priority as it once was. The author gives great advice on how to instill manners at home with children from toddlers on up, and includes a section on instructing teens on how to behave online and stay safe with social networking. She also addresses ground rules for playdates and how to handle bullies.
Other chapters include etiquette for being a host or guest, dating, getting married, births, personal appearance, conversation, correspondence and communication, tipping, traveling, and more.Read more ›
