    Cute little book with current advice

    This was an impulse buy. It looked like a fun quick read. I found it had a lot of really good advice. The information is organized in small easy-to-read paragraphs. I liked that it included examples of etiquette for our current e-world. (Texting at the table in a restaurant on a first date is not good manners.) I also liked that it covered everything from what undies to wear to how to enter a room.
    Of course there were a couple of things that I didn't find worked for me; for example, what colors are my 'good' colors and carry ballet shoes in my bag for when I take my heels off. They may work for someone else though.
    Overall, I recommend the book. After I read it, I will definitely pass it on to girlfriends. Good manners never go out of style. And this is a nice reminder.
