Create an account. Emily Post's Etiquette. This newest book is a revision, not remaking, of the similar 18th and 17th editions from and , respectively. I like to make my social mistakes on purpose. Most people will probably be pleased with this big new book in the Post tradition, but to be on the safe side don't throw away any older guides regardless of lineage. But the Commandments do not always prevent such virtuous scoffers from dealings with their neighbor of which no gentleman could be capable and retain his claim to the title.

When I was a teenager on homeschool, my sister and I decided we would like to do an independent study class on proper etiquette for fun.
This book was so interesting! I feel so much more cultured and educated now that I know the proper ways things are supposed to be done. And it's not something 'snooty' to know about - it's about truly loving and respecting other people. That's what etiquette is all about. It's shows real class. And you don't have t This is self-help so it only gets three stars. And you don't have to read the whole thing through - just refer to it occasionally if you're wondering about something or if you're just curious about a particular subject.
It has everything in it! I almost felt while reading it like I was mad because no one had ever taught me any of those things before! So it's like before I was just an ignorant hillbilly.: Jul 11, Katherine rated it really liked it Shelves: This book is a classic and a must for any young woman.
I read it cover to cover when I was 21 as it was a gift from my grandmother.
It is a pity that so many of these graces and little niceties are going by the wayside in the modern world. I think our youth today would greatly benefit from this book. Should be required reading!
I do not find the Peggy Post revised editions as good as the original Emily Post guides. Jul 05, Stacy Oliver-Sikorski rated it really liked it Recommends it for: This book is a must-have for every home.
I coveted it for years until finally someone - my father - acknowledged my unhealthy obsession with etiquette was best abetted by adding to the bookshelf. The thumbed guide and index make this an effortless reference book. Sometimes I come home from social gatherings and secretly chronicle what my friends have done that Emily Post would abhor with a silent head shake. View 2 comments. Feb 15, Ilona rated it liked it. Now I know the rules of the debutante's ball.
But why? This is an insanely thorough book about all the situations that people encounter during their life. It's written as a guidebook you can use to double check what kind of gifts you should give at a baby shower.
That is both impressive and repetitive. Highly recommended for aliens trying to blend in and general AI that escaped the lab in a stolen robotic body and now seeks to experience simple suburban life. Nov 23, E Sweetman rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Ah, to be gently guided in behaving correctly.
It's what separates us humans from the rest of the animals and that separation is, at times it would seem, quickly closing together. This is a wonderful book. It should be on everyone's bookshelf and referred to so often as to be dog-eared and falling apart.
I love that it can give me patience and restraint when I want to misbehave, say the wrong thing and act like a buffoon in public. I love that it gives me great examples for my Ah, to be gently guided in behaving correctly. I love that it gives me great examples for my sons.
If only the rest of society felt even slightly the same. I truly enjoyed reading this from a sort of ethnographic perspective. So much has changed since Emily Post first published this book in and I found this first edition fascinating.
I found the edition of this book on the free shelves outside the library Mar 16, Melissa Crady added it. Well I feel more confident in my Interpersonal relations now. So basically, don't say what I'm actually thinking. Got it. Aug 26, Cam M. Just one problem: So dated as to almost be fiction - I don't know why Bertie Wooster hasn't switched genres and turned up in here.
But a fascinating glimpse into the upper echelons of society in days gone by. Apr 30, Joe Turk rated it really liked it. I read this book for one reason I wanted to know what rules I was breaking. I like to make my social mistakes on purpose. I found it amusing. Dec 15, Justina rated it it was amazing.
This book gave me a good overview of basic etiquette for events, which is particularly helpful during the current busy holiday season filled with many visiting guests. My favorite excerpt is from Chapter XXV: This is one of the occasions when everyone is always intr This book gave me a good overview of basic etiquette for events, which is particularly helpful during the current busy holiday season filled with many visiting guests.
This is one of the occasions when everyone is always introduced. A ready smile, a quick sympathy a happy outlook, consideration for others tenderness toward everything that is young or helpless, forgetfulness of self, which is not far from the deal of womankind. Well-written and incredibly detailed etiquette advice for virtually every situation. However, I am not quite sure how to use this book. One of the great mysteries of my childhood was why my mother thought it was important enough to have this book on the shelf.
I tried to understand it, but it seemed too complicated.
I remember it now as byzantine. I associated it with many of the old Hollywood movies I saw on TV. They depicted wealthy families speaking with round-toned diction and wearing dressing gowns and negligees at the breakfast table.
Their servants brought in soft boiled eggs in special cups. It also seemed to have someth One of the great mysteries of my childhood was why my mother thought it was important enough to have this book on the shelf.
It also seemed to have something to do with the pilgrims we learned about at Thanksgiving in school. Eventually it dawned on me that we weren't all descended from the Pilgrims, so why was that the way we learned American history? My parents also had a copy of Phyllis Diller's Housekeeping Hints, which was essentially the antidote to Emily Post's writings.
Diller and stand-up comedy in general, was on the edge with dirty jokes, so it was an adventure to sort of sneak read Phyllis Diller, just like sneaking the Ian Fleming novels that were also sandwiched between classics at home.
This was around , when I was nine years old. The world of grown-ups was strange and needed some investigation. It was worrisome to try to figure out how to graduate into being a woman anything remotely like the current popular role models, such as Doris Day.
If you're reading it now, you are literally reading it out of date! If you're looking for actual current advice on how to act right, you might want to check out the dozens of updated and specific versions put out by Emily's estate.
According to Peggy Post, though times have changed, one truth remains constant. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.
