Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After years of giving it their best shot, most Americans have concluded that an etiquette-free society just isn't the fun it was thought to be. The citizens are clamoring for a return to civility. Hearing their cry, Miss Manners has revised, edited, and updated her most authoritative work on how to behave like a decent human being--Miss Manner Rescues Civilization--for its paperback version.
        
In it, Miss Manners demonstrates etiquette's essential role of settling our inevitable social differences without the aid of lawyers or the courts. Proving that etiquette-society's common language of behavior--is not for sissies, she examines political correctness, multiculturalism, sexual harassment, educational failure, freedom of speech, and the many other dilemmas that grow ever more acute without the intervention of a few basic rules to protect the combatants.
        
Whether on the job, in the streets, in schools, or in Congress; whether shopping, dining, attending a concert, or commuting to the office, Miss Manners: A Citizen's Guide to Civility is the practical, no-nonsense primer that is required reading for everyone unhappy with the current state of etiquette but at a loss for a way to restore it to its rightful place in the daily life of an irritable nation.
