Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up Post and Coles treat etiquette questions, including how to eat artichokes and chicken nuggets, when girls can call boys, how to break up with a steady friend, and how to handle ``call waiting'' in a thorough manner. Although the use of witticisms to replace actual names is traditional in Post's books, ``Justin Jock,'' ``Muffy Spensamore,'' and ``Sam Spaced'' are not welcome updates. Still, there are some excellent chapters. Particularly important is advice for latchkey children involving safety at home. Sex is treated conservatively, and absolute prohibitions are levied on drugs and alcohol. Methods for obtaining help for family problems are discussed. Employment etiquette covers resumes and interview situations. More detailed than Carlson and Fitzgibbon's Manners That Matter (Dutton, 1983), it is also somewhat formal and assumes that readers will be going to restaurants, the theater, and other fairly expensive places. Cindy Darling Codell, Belmont Junior High School, Winchester, Ky.

    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.

    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.
