Overview

Seventy-five years after Emily Post wrote her groundbreaking book, Peggy Post, her great-granddaughter-in-law, has thoroughly revised and updated Emily Post's Etiquette to take us into the next century. The hallmarks that define Emily Post's Etiquette as an indispensable resource remain: the correct table-setting for an intimate dinner party of eight, the proper response to a formal third-person invitation, and of course, all the details of planning a wedding. But in a world where our neighbors and coworkers are as likely to come from the other side of the globe as the other side of town, changes both subtle and radical are necessary in our manners. In addition to a chapter devoted to doing business internationally, readers find not only advice for visiting those from other cultures living in our country, but also guidance on wearing ethnic clothing when traveling in other countries. Previous editions have explained the traditions of Christianity and Judaism but now for the first time readers learn about birth and death ceremonies of Buddhism, Islam and Hinduism. Sports participants who used to read only about the etiquette of golf, tennis, skiing and sailing, now learn about inline skating and snowboarding as well.

    Wonderful Content.

    This isn't our parent's Ediquette book! It has lots of useful hints on modern living. For example, I've always wondered how much to tip my hairdresser and taxi drivers. It helped my relationship with my housekeeper and the employees in our residential building. It has lots of good hints about relationships at work too. The one downside of the book is the paper it is printed on. I got the hardcover version. The paper is only slightly better than newsprint. I guess that helps keep the price down (it is an impressive 2 3/4' thick!). But don't let that stop you. The content is worth suffering through the cheap paper it's printed on.

    Truley entertaning and informative!

    Emily post is a legend and this book truley helped me with writing an essay about the etymology of the word ettiquette. Although it bases on teaching readers about how to properly enhance their etiquette.
