Amy Vanderbilt's Everyday Etiquette

Book Club Edition. Garden City, New York: Hanover House: 1956. "A knowledge of what constitutes good manners makes us comfortable within ourselves and with other people. Automatic good manners under difficult circumstances increase our security and our ability to help others achieve social poise, too. Reduced to a phrase, good manners is consideration of other people in respect to their feelings, their safety, their privacy, and their full social rights and privileges." - Amy Vanderbilt, quoted on the book's back cover
