Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meet the personification of today's new etiquette: Mr. Social Grace — weekly advice columnist in print, radio and online — as he reveals the basics of good manners for everyday urban life. Unlike yesterday's etiquette advisors (like your Great Aunt Vivian) Social Grace isn't here to beat you about the head and neck with self-righteous disapproval. Instead, he offers a new interpretation of good manners that can serve as a powerful tool to help twenty-first century people get along better. Presented in answers to real-life quandaries is Social Grace's philosophy of etiquette. It's not about snobbish correctness, but courtesy and common sense.With the help of this fun and lively little book, you'll be able to move confidently through any situation. You'll even be able to deal effectively with the rudeness of others, and, where kindness fails in the face of boorish behavior, to wield the powerful weapon of "applied rudeness" yourself.With gentle humor and encouragement, Social Grace promotes etiquette's critical role in a multi-cultural, democratic society — to guarantee that everyone is able and knows how to participate fully in society.
