About this title

Synopsis:

When it comes to manners in the city, "Urban Etiquette" is the ultimate guide for getting along. Where many cultures converge, respect can succeed where other communication fails. In fact, knowing the right thing to do can bring contentment, love, happiness, and even financial rewards. Meet the personification of modern etiquette: Mr. Social Grace -- weekly advice columnist in print, online, and on the radio -- as he reveals the basics of good manners for everyday urban life. Social Grace isn't here to beat you about the head and neck with self-righteous disapproval. Instead, he offers a new interpretation of good manners and explains how they can serve as a powerful tool to help twenty-first century people get along better. Presented in answers to real-life quandaries is Social Grace's philosophy of etiquette. It's not about snobbish correctness; rather, it's about courtesy and common sense. With the help of this fun and lively little book, you'll be able to mo! ve confidently through any situation. You'll even be able to deal effectively with the rudeness of others, and, where kindness fails in the face of boorish behavior, to wield the powerful weapon of "applied rudeness" yourself. With gentle humor and encouragement, Social Grace promotes etiquette's critical role in a multicultural, democratic society.
