    Say YES to Manners

    This book is hysterical while giving sound appropriate advice. I love her approach, and don't find that she is 'name calling' at all. (If you think she is, if the shoe fits...) I especially love how she discourages people from correcting others. Learn by example, Miss Manners is the perfect example....

    Horrible..DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK

    Miss Manners is just the opposite. Sounds very trailer parkish. Name calling, degrading. In a society where we should be assisting people to become better, Miss Manners thinks it's her duty to belittle with her childish opinions. The worst book ever. Read, 'Love is the Killer App' by Tim Sanders instead.

    There is too much name calling in this book

    Miss Manners' makes some good points in this book, however her points are often ruined with the name calling of people, especially those who choose not to follow cultural norms. For example Miss Manners' calls people who enjoy computer games 'geeks who should grow up'. There are plenty of good 'self help' books out that do not resort to blatent name calling. I would recommend one of these instead.

    Miss Manners, May I Introduce Gentle Reader?

    Miss Manners has quite a few books out there. There are two big ones from the eighties (M.M.'s Guide to Perfect Behavior and M.M.'s Guide to Rearing Perfect Children), and a bunch of primers for the 1990s that concentrate on just one area like business, weddings, etc. If you want or need a big, encyclopedic etiquette manual that covers everything from a French vacation to a fox hunt, don't look here. If you want a book that stays at home and deals with wit and wisdom about modern hassles like leaf-blowers, no-show help and self-inviting guests, then this volume is for you. Miss Manners' advice is always good-humored and rarely goes astray; if it does it's usually on the conservative side. But I should stress that this book is fun just to read, especially if you don't have access to her daily columns.
