This book is terrible.
Summary of book: 'What is a lady? A lady is a woman who conducts herself with grace, charm and dignity. Ladies are graceful and have self-respect. A lady is treats people with charm and respect, because they have dignity and pride. We surveyed a bunch of ladies and they all agreed that a lady has confidence, grace, and dignity. Oprah, Candice Bergen, Julia Roberts and Juliana Margulies are all ladies they respect themselves and act with grace. Juliana Margulies loves to wear pants.' I cannot finish it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Really enjoyed the book, as these days it seems that so many women are concentrating on rudeness and think that is cool. Nice to know that the lessons I learned as a young woman still apply. We get so caught up in dealing with life that we forget that some of us have a learned gift of being both womanly and a real lady. Wish they had a high school or college class on how to accomplish this level of social intelligence for young women today.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Why consideration matters and this book should be read
Noelle and I, the co-authors of this book, are overwhelmed with all the positive feedback we are getting and the amazing media coverage. We are delighted that our readers 'get' the book - that a lady is a modern woman who is above all considerate of others, has grace, dignity, style, a sense of humor about herself and is socially responsible. Think Oprah, Audrey Hepburn, Venus Williams, Julianna Margulies, Madeleine Albright, Rosa Parks, Christy Turlington, Mia Hamm, Michelle Yeoh and Candice Bergen and you'll understand what we're trying to say - a lady is not the least bit the image of a stuffy marm. Nor does she have to be famous as the 200 respondents who participated in a survey that was a basis for the book knew and told us. A lady is who you are, inside and out; someone others want to know and who succeeds, whether she's a stay at home mother or a ceo. We hope you enjoy The Art and Power of Being a Lady!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
