Publisher Comments:

Good manners will make you fabulous. Good manners will make you sexy. The well-mannered get invited to more dinner parties, see their career aspirations blossom, and have a wider array of friends and eligible suitors. So if you want to become your most fabulous self, read on-The Fabulous Girls Guide to Decorum is your ticket to becoming the girl you want to be.

Authors Kim Izzo and Ceri Marsh know first-hand that todays young women require etiquette advice that speaks to their modern sensibilities. Yes, we girls need to know how to write a perfect thank-you note and set a proper table-but we also need to know how to handle a one-night stand, how to ask for a promotion, what to wear at an art opening, and when a budding romance should move from supper to sex.

With The Fabulous Girls Guide to Decorum, Izzo and Marsh have written the etiquette guide for the new millennium and created the ultimate icon of style for the 21st century: The Fabulous Girl. Shes liberated but chic, impeccably mannered but never a snob, confident but compassionate, full of verve instead of vanity. Shes the epitome of Audrey Hepburn-esque style and savoire faire at the workplace, at a dinner party, and even in the bedroom.

The Fabulous Girls Guide to Decorum addresses all aspects of urban life, including careers, friendships, families, entertaining, socializing, romance, and sex (these days they dont necessarily go hand in hand!) and provides invaluable advice on how to navigate these tricky waters with unfailing grace. From what to wear at a power lunch to how to behave at a film premier, Izzo and Marsh address topics such as:

·Coping with an office backstabber

·Taxi and door-holding protocol on dates

·How to handle an affair with the boss

·Hosting the perfect dinner party

·How to handle fair weather friends

·Protocol for first-night sex

·The 10 things an FG will always have in her handbag

·Saving face when a male buddy has become too attached

Charming, witty and eminently practical, The Fabulous Girls Guide to Decorum is as essential as the little black dress and a must for every young womans bookshelf.

This is a fun read, but some parts you really cannot take seriously. Still, there are sections, such as on work and relationships, that come in handy and the authors keep the reader's attention. In all, this is a good book, as long as you come to it with a sense of humor. I like the set-up of the book.
