Emily Post's Etiquette (Emily Post's Etiquette)by Peggy Post
Synopses & Reviews
Millions of Readers, Eighteen Editions, One Trusted Resource
From social networking to social graces, the name Emily Post has been the definitive source on etiquette for generations of Americans. That tradition continues with the 18th edition of Etiquette, which welcomes a new generation of Posts—Anna Post, Lizzie Post, and Daniel Post Senning—the great-great grandchildren of Emily Post. Led by Peggy Post, author of the 16th and 17th editions of Etiquette, this team shows how twenty-first-century manners are a combination of kindness, confidence, and awareness.
New trends, topics, and societal hot zones include:
The Posts dont stint on classic conundrums, either. Emily Posts Etiquette includes advice on names and titles, dress codes, invitations, table manners, workplace frustrations, and weddings.
According to the Posts, though times have changed, the principles of good manners remain constant. Above all, manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. Being considerate, respectful, and honest is more important than knowing which fork to use. Whether its a handshake or a fist bump, its the underlying sincerity and good intentions of the action that matter most.
For nearly a century, one name has been trusted above all others when it comes to proper decorum: Emily Post. In this completely updated 18th Edition of the classic Emily Posts Etiquette, the mantle is picked up by the great-great-grandchildren of the First Lady of Etiquette, who tackle the latest issues and demands of the twenty-first century—from texting and tweeting to iPhones, Facebook, and all forms of social media. The perfect guide for Millennials living on their own for the first time who wish to establish themselves properly in the workplace—as well as for Baby Boomers in the midst of planning their childrens weddings, entering retirement, and helping to care for elderly parents—Emily Posts Etiquette, 18th Edition, remains the essential handbook to proper social behavior.
