Product Description

An essential guide to modern manners, this enlightening and useful book strikes a balance between the stuffy, rigid rules of the 1950s and today's anything-goes school of thought. It is packed with good-humoured advice for the way we live today, but also discusses which formal points of etiquette are still relevant in the 21st century.
