This purchase was great value for money and well kept (apart from a few scuff marks that mostly rubbed off). Thank you!

An excellent Book. It covers practically every aspect of living. Quite bulky and not easy to carry around but very good to have depending on what your need is.

Trust the Experts 4 Nov 2011
By Bonni - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
One might think the name 'Emily Post' to be intimidating when it comes to approaching the subject of social etiquette, but what this book, and all previous editions of Emily Post's Etiquette, quickly turns you onto is the fact that 'proper' social interaction isn't that complicated at all.

At the end of the day, what the concept of etiquette comes down to is behaving in a way that shows respect for the people around you. This book is very down to earth; not at all the 'walk straight with a book upon your head' list of rules and regulations we might expect it to be. In fact, I'd like to suggest "The Book of Just Plain Common Sense" as an alternate title. It answers the questions of what to do when your coworkers offend you; whether or not it's a good idea to unfriend that guy on Facebook that you met at a party and has since filled your feed with political propaganda; even how to approach the friend who has a bit of a body odor problem. Is it OK to invite someone to a gathering via email? Sure! Is it OK to keep texting at the dinner table? Probably not.

Whether you're looking for a comprehensive resource, or you're curious to know which fork goes where, this book has all the answers to those questions our modern world forces us to ask. And the Post family does a great job presenting it in a way that doesn't make you feel like a dummy!

Emily Post is not what it used to be 2 Jun 2012
By Caraculiambro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I had long wanted to own a copy of this and finally got around to buying one.

I was definitely in the market for a quaint guide to manners for my edification and amusement.

Unfortunately, the Emily Post empire has changed. Her books from the 60's were unapologetically prescriptive: Do this, Don't do that, Always do . .

But after spending a couple of hours with this book, I believe that over the years the enterprise has been so watered-down that it's now entirely descriptive, instead of prescriptive: Some people do this, others do this. Some otherwise high-class folks can be caught these days resting their elbows on the table during dinner, the editorial staff has noticed.

I know that. I don't need the book to tell me that "Some people hold the door open for ladies, others don't."

Get some balls, guys.

Emily Post Etiquette 18th Edition 1 May 2012
By Anon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
At first I was beyond myself with excitement when this book finally arrived. Then I started reading it and was disappointed to see that the beautiful use of the English language and the firm but encouraging tone that characterized earlier editions of Etiquette was not present. I understand that the authors were being colloquial in order to be more "accessible", but it left me quite apathetic as opposed to inspired to be the very best that I could be. Also, etiquette by its very nature is quite conservative, and this book most certainly is not.

Overall it's a good resource, and I mainly wanted this book for the reference material in the back (which, by the way, is extremely useful and the made the entire purchase worth my money), but it was very disappointing to see how our society has become so inelegant that even Emily Post Etiquette has succumbed. Aside from practical advice on technology, I would stick with the 17th Edition by Peggy Post alone.

I gave this book as a wedding gift after receiving, (not an invitation0, but an announcement for a relative's wedding, which stated that immediate family were the only ones invited, AND that 'CASH GIFTS WERE WELCOMED!!" I was flabbergasted!!! How tacky!!
Hope they get the message! And, no, I didn't send any money!!!
