The book is spot on with many suggestions but it could be spot-checked a little better. There are a few instances where the same suggestion is made again (and it's a proofreading error, not for emphasis).
Nice to see the book is starting to incorporate more modern technology. It would be great to see a chapter emphasizing cellular and email etiquitte in any updated editions. Beyond a gripe about how it is rude to text when with others, it seems like the younger generation (myself being in it and teaching college students also in it) does not realize that it is not appropriate to use the same language or symbols in an email that might be common while texting. A series of these kinds of suggestions would help make a newer edition appear timely rather than a book that has a few random sentences added to it so a newer edition can be published.
This book could be expanded in several topics that do not change often: like how to pair or use certain dresswear. I appreciate the diagram on tying a bowtie. From the description and the picture, I figured out how to fix a problem I had been having with my knot (and that I picked up in several online videos as well as a diagram I had seen before). I was a bit surprised not to see something similar for a few types of normal tie knots or at least a mention of how to use some of them (depending on a particular collar or jacket).
Overall, this book was a pleasant and helpful read. I will eventually get a version of this kind of book for my son or daughther (in addition to passing down the tips they will encounter).
