9780061740237: Emily Post's Etiquette: Manners for a New World

Etiquette experts Peggy, Anna, Lizzie and Dan answer today's toughest questions, from Everyday Manners and Life in the Workplace to Life Stages and Special Times including: Do I have to respond to every email and text? A business client is sick with a cold - am I obliged to shake his hand? When is it ok to unfriend someone on Facebook? If I'm in the middle seat of an airplane row, do I automatically get both armrests? My niece doesn't write thank-you notes for the gifts I send. Can I stop sending gifts? Is it wrong for the bride and groom to tweet at their own wedding? Do I have to bring a gift to my friend's engagement party? And should I cover my tattoos and piercings before a job interview? While they address contemporary issues, the Posts don't stint on classic conundrums. Emily Post's Etiquette includes guides on names and titles, official forms of address, dress codes, invitations, eating and drinking, and wedding budgets. This book mirrors the Emily Post Institute's online etiquette encyclopedia, etipedia, - where new content is regularly added to reflect the constantly evolving nature of manners in American society. According to Peggy Post, though times have changed, one truth remains constant. Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.

Dalla quarta di copertina:

Millions of Readers, Eighteen Editions, One Trusted Resource

From social networking to social graces, the name Emily Post has been the definitive source on etiquette for generations of Americans. That tradition continues with the 18th edition of Etiquette, which welcomes a new generation of Posts—Anna Post, Lizzie Post, and Daniel Post Senning—the great-great grandchildren of Emily Post. Led by Peggy Post, author of the 16th and 17th editions of Etiquette, this team shows how twenty-first-century manners are a combination of kindness, confidence, and awareness.

New trends, topics, and societal hot zones include:

  • When is it okay to “unfriend” someone on Facebook?
  • If I’m in a middle seat on an airplane, do I automatically get both armrests?
  • A business client is sick with a cold—am I obligated to shake his hand?
  • Is it rude for guests to tweet from a wedding?
  • Do I have to buy a gift if I attend a destination wedding?
  • Can I email a condolence note?
  • Should I cover up my tattoo for a job interview?

The Posts don’t stint on classic conundrums, either. Emily Post’s Etiquette includes advice on names and titles, dress codes, invitations, table manners, workplace frustrations, and weddings.

According to the Posts, though times have changed, the principles of good manners remain constant. Above all, manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. Being considerate, respectful, and honest is more important than knowing which fork to use. Whether it’s a handshake or a fist bump, it’s the underlying sincerity and good intentions of the action that matter most.
