The great-granddaughter-in-law of etiquette doyenne Emily Post updates the "dos and don'ts" of contemporary social interaction. Susan Bennett confidently presents logically grouped categories of behavior--family, business relationships, and everyday social encounters. Lighthearted but helpful guidelines include teaching children to be polite to each other and adults, to be aware of public decorum, such as not wiggling and fussing in restaurants, and to gracefully share with others. Bennett adopts a more serious tone when covering party behavior, such as what to do about double-dippers, how to treat late dinner guests, and when to write thank-you notes. What makes all this work so well is Bennett's smooth, intimate voice and nonjudgmental attitude. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
