Format: Kindle Edition
This is an unstuffy guide to how to behave well in every social situation. Accepting that rigid rules of social etiquette have more or less disappeared, this instead tends to focus on considerate behaviour as the ‘new’ manners.

Most of it, as the author states, is common-sense and yet bears repeating. Sadly, some of the people who would benefit from this most (the person with the *massive* rucksack on their back on the rush hour tube... the parents who allow their toddler to kick the back of your seat all the way from London to New York and consider you bad-mannered when you politely ask them to make it stop... the friend who is late every single time you meet up) are the least likely to read it.

So, if you’re not sure what polite funeral etiquette is, or how to deal with unwanted fruit pips at a posh dinner – answers are within.

This book is astonishingly badly written, and not at all useful as a guide to good manners.

I bought this as a gift for my wife, as she loved another book in this series that she bought at Buckingham Palace after our tour of the palace. She loves it.

kinda lame and pretty general 13 May 2014
By Katarina Ortmann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This one was a disappointment for me.

It was pretty lame...I was expecting a lot more useful info, instead of mostly general info and glossing over topics.

Most of the book, about 80%, were just common sense or very basic obvious knowledge to me. Ok, so I was taught good manners by my parents growing up, but I figured I could find some more useful info in this book....unfortunately I didn't.
