Book Description

Modern charm involves much more than knowing what utensils to use at dinner or how to eloquently excuse yourself from unpleasant company.

3.0 out of 5 stars its Ok 18 Mar. 2015
For some reason I expected something else in this book and not reading something that should be 'a must' anyway.... Its like for someone who came from Mars and not knowing what is it ..... or maybe for some 'wild' people who NEVER ever been out in public . Haven't learned much from this book and even scrolled through. This book will br good for someone who doesn't know what 'manners' mean ...

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 31 May 2014

Too little about everything and little depth about anything. Very superficial guide to nothing more than manners, I'm afraid. Disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable information for gaining favor with those around you 21 Jun. 2013
By Valerie Caraotta - Published on
This e- book on style is very helpful for all ladies to read even if one feels they already know quite a bit. It covers an array of sections including looks, makeup, posture, and conversation/phone etiquette. Because impressions mean so much this will really help you feel more confident and comfortable when around others you do not know and also help you stand out in the crowd.

The necessity of good eye contact and making others feel very important adds to charm and is attractive. Too important is remembering peoples names and allowing others to talk about themselves as you listen attentively. Along with proper standing posture other types of posture is covered including sitting, driving, and sleeping( which will help align the spine).

There is very helpful advice on accessories and makeup. Accessories do matter and the size of them worn should be relative to one's body size. For makeup it's good to know that evening makeup shade should not be the same as morning/day shade and you will be taught tips you need to know regarding this.

Various etiquette mannerisms are covered including proper introductions, table manners, and phone etiquette. For the value price of this book these tips are invaluable and can lead to favor or promotion on the job. It separates one from the crowd in a favorable way. I highly recommend this book.

I LOVED this book! The author kept the tone of the book light - like having a chat with a friend - and dispensed some amazing and insightful advice at the same time. In particular, I love her definition of style and class - everyone should learn and live by it. The book was well-organized, easy to read, and very helpful. I am looking forward to reading more from this author!

In no time was I smiling at strangers and walking with the proper posture. I noticed how happy it made everyone around me for myself to be happy. I think this book not only taught me how to be graceful, but it also taught me to find my inner lady.

This book was such a lovely surprise! From the “Royal treatment” to the tips on how to be a good host, from fashion to beauty, from traveling to how to start a conversation, everything is easy to read and really useful. I feel already more confident. Great book for a very convenient price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written crap 23 Dec. 2013
By Miss Demeanour - Published on
Verified Purchase
The section on travel is hilarious - I'd be surprised if the author has ventured behind the confines of her home town.She warns unwary travellers to take a pair of heels to Rome as "Italians like to dine out in style and elegance, and there are 'selectors' at doors if you're wearing flats!"

Is this woman for real or is she just blessed with an impish sense of humour?

I've spent a lot of time in Rome and never once did I come across a 'selector', let alone one who refused me entry for wearing flats. This assertion is pure fantasy.
