So I hear this name get thrown around alot and I decieded to try to read this book and see what all the hub bub was about. I’m just wondering who else has actually read it? And did you manage to finish it. It’s interesting but I do have to keep reminding myself that it was originally published in 1922.
I have a scanned PDF of one of the older editions I just downloaded so maybe the newer editions are more relevant to life as we know it??

@Sassy9226: Newer versions are more relevent. I’m not sure how old the one you’re looking at is, but if it’s prior to the 90’s, I would try to get a more recent copy.
Ettiquette is really just the art of making people feel comfortable, so the basics don’t change that much: say please and thank you, don’t ask the hostess how much the wine cost, etc. But newer versions do eliminate some things that are truly outdated (dance cards, anyone?) and add suggestions for more modern situations, like email.

I haven’t read it, but it’s on my reading list. I want to find the most recent copy, but haven’t managed to yet.
