Product Synopsis

Etiquette experts Peggy, Anna, Lizzie and Dan answer today's toughest questions, from Everyday Manners and Life in the Workplace to Life Stages and Special Times including: Do I have to respond to every email and text? A business client is sick with a cold - am I obliged to shake his hand? When is it ok to unfriend someone on Facebook? If I'm in the middle seat of an airplane row, do I automatically get both armrests? My niece doesn't write thank-you notes for the gifts I send. Can I stop sending gifts? Is it wrong for the bride and groom to tweet at their own wedding? Do I have to bring a gift to my friend's engagement party? And should I cover my tattoos and piercings before a job interview? While they address contemporary issues, the Posts don't stint on classic conundrums. Emily Post's Etiquette includes guides on names and titles, official forms of address, dress codes, invitations, eating and drinking, and wedding budgets. This book mirrors the Emily Post Institute's online etiquette encyclopedia, etipedia, - where new content is regularly added to reflect the constantly evolving nature of manners in American society.

According to Peggy Post, though times have changed, one truth remains constant. Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.
