Publisher's Summary

There are just some things she'd never be caught doing. Chattering away on her cell phone about the latest family drama while in line at the grocery store? Never. Updating her Facebook status in the middle of a conversation with a friend? Certainly not. Spouting off her political opinions in mixed company? Not her style. Fumbling through airport security with complicated shoes and a misplaced boarding pass? Wouldn’t think of it. Being a lady isn’t necessarily getting easier these days, but the importance of a woman’s refined influence has never been more important. How to Be a Lady reiterates the timeless notions of gracious womanhood, while reconsidering what it means to be a lady in a changing world.

Decent and short enough to be worth it.

While I wouldn't say this is worth a credit I think it is worth it if you get it during one of Audible's sales. This basically reads like a bullet list, reading quick sentences of appropriate versus inappropriate actions. So, the performance/format may not be completely captivating it is short enough that you can attend to it and benefit from the information as it is an interesting list. Some things are obvious/common sense but other points of information are interesting to hear. Overall okay if you get it cheap and have 2 hours of time to kill while cleaning/etc. and want to learn an thing or 2.

Meh

This should be titled “Common Sense and Old-fashioned Ideals, Combined”. It was less about etiquette and refinement and more about such obvious things as: a lady always looks around while pumping gas and a lady never speaks her mind. There was some interesting bits at the end about what to do if you meet the pope {insert eye roll emoji here}. I am sure this review is quite unladylike in the authors mind, but as a courtesy to anyone who may be considering spending your money on this book, there are better etiquette books out there.

Excellent Bullet Point Guide

I love this book. I've listened to a number of etiquette books and this by far is simple and to the point. surprised that more people haven't listened to it.

Clear essentials!

The useful necessities of modern lady behaviour. No excessive information. Very pleasant narrator. Few moments, that'll make you smile.

Dissapointment

What disappointed you about How to Be a Lady?

It has nothing to do with how to be a lady, but more simple recommendations, similar to "wash your hands before eating", which you usually learn before becoming adult.

What will your next listen be?

Definitely something different

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Have no problems with narrator, but with content.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Nope

Any additional comments?

I would like to request a refund, this book is really disappointing.
