Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
For at least three decades, Ms. Baldridge has been my "go-to" source for etiquette advice. I particularly appreciate the advice she gave which told executives to treat admin workers and receptionists with respect. It was definintely needed advice. Anyway, about 20 years ago, I got curious about the lady behind the etiquette books, so I tried to find out as much as I could.She lead a pretty interesting life even before the Kennedy administration. She was the social secretary for Clare Booth Luce, the first American woman ambassador. This book mostly covers that era of her life. If one has a chance, they should read this book "Roman Candle" published in 1956, as well as some of her other works. Then you'll see that she had her successes as well as her faux pas. Plus you'll also notice that even though it was the 1950s, not all women were satisfied with merely being limited to being wives and mothers. They had goals and ambitions just like anyone else. Here's how I see it: despite the fact she did grow up in some privileged circumstances, it's becomes evident that no one gave Ms. Baldrige anything on a silver platter. She EARNED whatever she had. Hence the reason she earned my respect over the years.
