Overview

Whether a woman is a contractor, a stay-at-home mother, or a high-poweredattorney, the suggestions in How to Be a Lady will cause others to think"Wow! She's got it all together!"
  • If a lady is on a diet, she does not speak of it at the table
  • A lady never eats a meal while behind the wheel of a car

The roles women play in society today are drastically different than theywere 25 years ago, and some of the rules are different as well.

Patterned after the successful How to Be a Gentleman, How to Be aLady is a practical book of etiquette that is not snobbish, boring orintimidating. It is designed for a new century by discussing such issues as howto dress for the workplace, the importance of knowing self defense, and how totactfully ask for the sexual history of a person with whom a lady is consideringan intimate relationship.
