“Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.” — Emily Post
Manners That Matter Most lays out the basics of grace, etiquette and good manners in one beautiful package.
Etiquette is one of the most valuable assets a person can have: knowing how best to present yourself, and how to deal with others in a direct, effective manner, is paramount in all personal, professional, and social relationships. Manners That Matter Most seeks to resurrect the bygone customs of good manners and graceful style; all while updating and applying them to the modern age.
Covering topics from introductions, greetings and thank-you’s, to the etiquette of modern technology (including the appropriate places and times to call and text message), Manners That Matter Most is a valuable resource and a much-needed guide in our fast-paced world.
Suitable for all readers in all social situations, Manners That Matter Most contains both the information and the support you need to gain and give more consideration in your social encounters. With an emphasis on graciousness and chivalry that lends the book its authoritative tone, Manners That Matter Most is the essential companion for anyone looking to put their best foot forward in any situation.
The book also includes inspirational quotes on the importance of courtesy, respect and dignity; 25 essential lessons everyone should learn to cultivate better manners; and tips for more effective with family, friends and co-workers.
Taking an old subject and presents it in a fresh and accessible way, Manners That Matter Most reminds us why good practice in etiquette not only makes the practitioner look good, but enhances society as a whole. With Manners That Matter Most, the world opens up—and you know just what to say.
The book also includes a special foreword by Norah Lawlor, the Founder and Principal of Lawlor Media Group Inc., a New York-based boutique strategy PR firm focused on a luxury lifestyle clientele.
