The Tricky Art of Co-Existing
No one learns “etiquette” anymore (except by embarrassing trial and error). But manners are more than a dusty tradition: Done right, they make life easier—for everyone!
That’s why Sandi Toksvig highlights decency rather than convention in this entertaining guide! She will offer spot on advice, like “Remember—you don’t have to answer the phone, so don’t do it if you don’t have time to be polite.” Also learn fascinating trivia, like “It is very rude to clear the plate of someone who hasn’t finished. In fact, the Romans believed doing so would bring about the diner’s sudden death.”
With the author’s trademark wit, you’ll be the most decently behaved person in the room, and the most interesting, once you’ve mastered The Tricky Art of Co-Existing!
