Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The ultimate guide to modern manners from today's authority on gracious living--Town & Country. In a world where the rules keep changing and informality reigns, how does one know how to behave with courtesy and grace? Is it rude to keep checking my Blackberry during lunch with a friend? How do I speak with the parents of the child who bullies my son at school? And really--is a hand-written thank-you note still necessary? Town & Country Etiquette has the answers to all these quandaries...and more. Written by a respected etiquette coach, it covers all of the traditional subjects (place settings at formal dinners, appropriate language for invitations), as well as those that are unique to our time: issues of privacy and cyberspace, personal interaction in an increasingly diverse society, and professional protocol in a global business environment. Written in the magazine's sophisticated, witty voice, Town & Country Etiquette is filled with real-life anecdotes that help anyone--of any age and social status--learn the manners of the modern world.
