Love u Tim!
His writing is also truthfully tactful when it comes to manners. What I love most about this book is that he is an advocate for basic manners and for basic social decency (eg. Please do not use your stroller as a battering ram, or if you get a gift, send a thank you card, or please do not mistake the open subway door as a free for all battle royale, etc.). I'm just happy that Tim thinks the same way I do when I gladfully help my grocer bag my groceries or encourage a mother with a few items in her cart to hop in front of me. I know it's not much but to see them smile makes my day - if they say 'Thank you!' that's even better (inside joke if you read the book!).
Tim Gunn's delightfully gossipy, readable book nails it -- not just how to behave, but why good manners are essential to lasting success. While he occasionally goes briefly off the rails into anecdotes, they are always fun and ultimately on point as illustrations of how to (or more often, how NOT to) act in public. Even more importantly, he is very clear on why etiquette matters.
Should be required reading in middle school, again in high school, and with every employment interview!
