    " I tend to be too nice to strangers and I picked this up in hopes of getting polite ways to be more assertive.I enjoyed it, skipping over a few chapters that weren't of interest to me, but laughing at some of the other situations (having been there). "

    " Don't know why, but I like reading etiquette books. I find them interesting, and I liked this one. It had lots of practical, every day dilemmas, apart from what fork to use with fish and all that fussy stuff. "

    " I enjoyed this for the light reading and reminders of etiquette. I especially enjoyed the chapter on cell phones. Apparently we really don't have a year to give a gift following a wedding. That's an urban myth. Also, apparently it's not best to ask a widow whether the spouse had life insurance! "
