Overview

• The book is an edited and illustrated version of the original one and includes 35 or more unique illustrations which are relevant to its content.
• The book was considered revolutionary in its time because it recast manners from rigid Victorian rules into behavior that was based on ethics, values and common sense. It also serves as a reminder of how individual choices may affect others and how easy it is to choose—words, wardrobes, gifts and actions—more wisely. “Self-respect is just as important as respect for others. A person who respects herself isn’t boastful or pushy but is secure in a way that inspires confidence in others. She values herself regardless of her physical attributes or individual talents, understanding that integrity and character are what really matter. “

This book surprised me in the style in which it was written. There was no snobbery, just explaining it is always to our advantage to be considerate of other people. Of course, in earlier generations centered on ultra wealth and different lifestyles, some information doesn't apply to us without a house full of servants and calling cards for visitation; yet, it is interesting to read about. Basic pleasant conduct and being mindful of others' comfort paints a lovely picture of how society today should be. The book was easy to read and I wish this basic instruction would be given to our children as well. Manners gives self confidence!
