Nice refresher

I definitely learned some things, but mostly a nice refresher. There were a couple of things that I completely disagreed with but maybe they were just a difference in culture.

Concise, accurate, entertaining

this is a good manners book. it doesn't draw out each point with a long story example like many other books. it's focused around eating but still covers social functions bcs most social functions include some type of meal.

Best of year

Loved this book. Yes, it's about table manners, etiquette and staying cool in sticky situations, but it's done with panache and even made me laugh out loud a few times. Great advice in here too!
