I’ve always had a passion for etiquette books, in addition to the contemporary versions, I also love reading etiquette books from decades past, I find it to be so interesting to visit the societal behavior over the past century or so. I guess I like them because I feel that if we have rules of the road to keep us all safe while driving, we should have a rules or guidelines to stay safe and happy socially as well.
Philip has kindly offered to send a personalized copy of his book to one winning Splendid Market reader!
Details for the giveaway are at the bottom of the post.
Let me share with you a couple of examples:
The chapter “When Strangers Get a Little Strange” features questions from readers about irksome behavior they’ve encountered in public settings and how to deal with those who are behaving this way. In these situations Philip advises readers follow the words of the the 60’s hit sung by Dionne Warwick and just “Walk on By… If you see me walking down the street, and I start to cry each time we meet, walk on by, walk on by. That’s right: Do not tangle with strangers on the street or at the bank, or in line at Starbucks. Just walk on by.”
