    One thought on “21st-Century Etiquette: Charlotte Ford's Guide to Manners for the Modern Age”

    1. I have delved into the etiquette books for some reason. I find them fascinating. This book was OK. It became quite apparent that Mrs. Ford is from a much higher society status than myself, thus rendering much of her advice useless to me. However, manners are manners and most apply to everyone no matter what.

    2. Like it well enough. What can I say, it passes the time when you're REALLY booored. The best part so far is the story about the man drinking out of his finger-bowl.I have finally given up on this book, the highlight of this book is still the part about the dude drinking out of the finger-bowl. Pretty sad if you ask me.

    3. Maybe I've read too many books like this lately, but I was really bored reading this book. There were a couple good/ funny comments. Mostly though it seemed like common sense, or were things that just don't apply to me (like tipping they person who helps you pick a wine - I don't drink wine). Glad to have this one done, glad to be moving on to other books.

    4. I didn't read every page word for word, but more or less thumbed through it and read what interested me. Overall a decent book, but the author is definitely a social class (or twoor five) above mine so much of the information was not pertinent to me.

    5. Well I learned how much to tip to a hotel cleaning person, which I kinda already knew (but forgot last time I was at a hotel i think *** ), how to offer to pay for my meal when on a date, a slew of other guidelines for tipping and conducting oneself in regards to modern technology.

    6. The anecdotes passed the time, like a jokes in Reader's Digest, and that's about the best you can say about it.

    7. Learned some things Need a more updated version and one for moms!!!! Good read , needed that extra boost!

    8. Lame, stuffy and antiquated. I picked this up because it was next to a Kate Spade book on manners that I was checking out.
