4 stars for incomplete directions.
The substance of the book is also great. There is a good mix of etiquette tips, party hosting suggestions, and even tips for staying the night at a friend's house. The recipes are interesting at first read and vary on difficultly level. I haven't tried any yet but I did attend one of the Deans' classes in Charleston about a year ago and will tell you everything we made that morning was divine.
Within two days of receiving the book and forcing myself to read it slowly (I just wanted to read it cover to cover when it arrived), I was inspired to host a dessert party. It was great fun and I'm looking forward to hosting another event at my home soon.
