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.
