    Great, Well-Needed Book!

    I thought this book was excellent. It's too bad there isn't a little more common courtesy in the world today. This book is easy to read, full of brief suggestions on how to be more courteous. The only complaint I have is that it is not well-organized, and about a handful of tips were mentioned more than once.

    Needed Today

    In a society where people are in too much of a hurry to be bothered with the common courtesies of holding doors, saying 'please' and 'thank you', and using turn signals, hope springs eternal. This back-to-basics book puts a practical, relevant spin on the timeless principles of personal grooming and working and playing well with others. This title would be a welcome addition to middle school required reading lists!

    Hilarious For Such A Stiff, Proper Book!

    This book had me crying in the middle of Barnes and Noble it was so hilarious! The thought of such etiquette during this century- it's almost absurd! You don't see someone following 'a lady never salts her food before tasting it! It's an insult to the cook!' It's so proper and so much fun to read, it makes want to have elegance!!

    This dumdum had a shadow writer

    She didn't write any of it, she was approached by the editors since she seemed to be a 'lady of style'

    Extremely Disappointed - Haven't we made more strides?

    I'm not sure if I can even summarize this book - it's monumentally disturbing. This isn't even one of those books that's making fun of gender roles. It's real. Most of these rules are ridiculous, but they are just basic rules for being a courteous human. Not just women only.
