Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether a woman is a contractor, a stay-at-home mother, or a high-powered attorney, the suggestions in How to Be a Lady will cause others to think Wow She's got it all together

  • If a lady is on a diet, she does not speak of it at the table
  • A lady never eats a meal while behind the wheel of a car
  • A lady makes it a point to know the names of the teams playing in the Super Bowl

The roles women play in society today are drastically different than they were 25 years ago, and some of the rules are different as well. Somewhere along the way, says the author, the art of being a lady was lost in the shuffle to become a self-sufficient, straight shooting, agressive survivor in the world . . . Some of us lost sight of the rewards that being a lady could bring.

How to Be a Lady is a practical book of etiquette that is not snobbish, boring, or intimidating. Designed for a new century, it addresses such issues as how to dress for the workplace, the importance of knowing self-defense, and how to deal with divorced friends and unmarried couples.
