21st Century Etiquette by Ford et al.

  • Jun 17, 2004
This book would be very helpful in crafting a personal etiquette
routine. The authors explain a variety of strategies advising
extended guests to keep a low profile & pitch in. The authors
advise us to keep our voices low in public places. They also
explain the importance of smiling and greeting people. Occasionally, it may be necessary to notify neighbors of partying-particularly extensive engagements where there are many
people involved. Politeness and giving up a bus/train seat
may be in order. There are occasions where a toast is in order
just prior to the commencement of a meal. In a restaurant, it is proper to raise your hand to signal a waiter rather than making loud and disruptive noises. In addition, proprietors must realize
that customers have rights. This book would be helpful for any person looking to add a touch of culture and refinement to the
conduct of life and pursuits thereof.
