This enlightening guide to good behavior strikes a beautiful balance between the stuffy, rigid rules of the 1950s and today's anything-goes lifestyle. With good humor, “Her Ladyship” dishes out contemporary advice and discusses which formal points of etiquette remain relevant in the 21st century. From “A Few Basics” (like punctuality and not overstaying your welcome), to handling party invitations and playing host, to dressing properly, eating out, and writing emails, this is an essential look at modern manners.

Light-hearted guide to current etiquette and I wish in fact that I'd read it before, because simple and seemingly obvious (in retrospect) social responses could have eased my way in various situations or made me a better guest/host. You might be surprised at what you don't know or cues you've missed too. Easy to read and well-formatted book.
