Emily Post's Etiquette, 18th Edition Manners For A New World Review Holiday Gift Guide

Emily Post's Etiquette, the latest and 18th edition, is the new book of manners for this new and changing world. For generations, Emily Post has been the authority on good manners, proper social conduct and how to live a gracious life. But times have changed and just a few years ago the term "social networking" didn't even exist. So many of us are now plugged into the ever expanding world of technology, and good manners are needed there as well.

This new edition of Etiquette tackles all the modern issues that most of us face daily, from texting and Facebook, to tweeting and iPhones. We are introduced to a new generation of the Post Family, Emily's two great-great granddaughters and grandson. These new and younger voices offer answers and insights into some of todays' complicated social questions regarding technology and it's uses. Questions about on-line dating proper behavior on Facebook, tattoos in the workplace and more are just some of the subjects found here. All the questions and social situations that our parents once turned to Emily Post for the answers to, are covered here as well. Weddings, table manners, dress codes, family celebrations and more are all covered in a friendly and easy conversational tone. Thoughtfulness and consideration are just as important today as they always have been.

I think this is an important and excellent book for everyone to have in their household. We all want to have an active, happy social and family life. Good manners are key to good relationships, in the workplace, and making and keeping friends.

You can purchase Emily Post's Etiquette, 18th Edition Manners For A New World from Harper Collins, Barnes and Noble, Books A Million and many other book retailers.
