    Story
    (10)

    From the excesses of the late 19th-century Gilded Age, through the horrors of World War I, to the transformations of the Roaring 20s that gave birth to her magisterial Etiquette, Emily Post unfailingly took the measure of her era. A Baltimore blue blood with a populist heart, she helped the masses live the American dream with her hugely popular book, which has been continuously in print for over 85 years.

    "Surprising and interesting"
    Overall

    ...especially Emily's connection with architecture.
    She was not a trend-follower, but a trend-setter who believed that "etiquette" was all about making others feel comfortable.
    The narrator was good, but mispronounced some names and words which she should have looked up if she was unfamiliar with them.
