Commonsense Etiquette: A Guide to Gracious, Simple Manners for the Twenty-First Century
For the past forty years I've had the great pleasure of teaching schoolchildren, college students, businesspeople, brides- and grooms-to-be, and other Americans the simple joy of behaving with courtesy and style.
With my sixteenth book I'm thrilled to be sharing with you a complete handbook for old-fashioned and effortless etiquette for the twenty-first century.
Never have thoughtfulness and care been more important in our lives-- from shared conversations at the family dinner table to two-line E-mails written in haste. I hope this book helps bring the joys of graciousness, kindness, and civility to your home and your life.
