Description

Completely revised and updated with a focus on civility and inclusion, the 19th edition of Emily Post's Etiquette is the most trusted resource for navigating life's every situation

From social networking to social graces, Emily Post is the definitive source on etiquette for generations of Americans. That tradition continues with the fully revised and updated 19th edition of Etiquette. Authored by etiquette experts Lizzie Post and Daniel Post Senning--Emily Post's great-great grandchildren--this edition tackles classic etiquette and manners advice with an eye toward diversity and the contemporary sensibility that etiquette is defined by consideration, respect, and honesty.

As our personal and professional networks grow, our lives become more intertwined. This 19th edition offers insight and wisdom with a fresh approach that directly reflects today's social landscape. Emily Post's Etiquette incorporates an even broader spectrum of issues while still addressing the traditions that Americans appreciate, including:

Weddings Invitations Loss, grieving, and condolences Entertaining at home and planning celebrations Table manners Greetings and introductions Social media and personal branding Political conversations Living with neighbors Digital networking and job seeking The workplace Sports, gaming, and recreation

Emily Post's Etiquette also includes advice on names and titles--including Mx.--dress codes, invitations and gift-giving, thank-you notes and common courtesies, tipping and dining out, dating, and life milestones. It is the ultimate guide for anyone concerned with civility, inclusion, and kindness.

Though times change, the principles of good etiquette remain the same. Above all, manners are a sensitive awareness of the needs of others--sincerity and good intentions always matter more than knowing which fork to use.

The Emily Post Institute, Inc., is one of America's most unique family businesses.

The Emily Post Institute, the most trusted brand in etiquette, tackles the latest issues regarding how we interact along with classic etiquette and manners advice in this updated and gorgeously packaged edition.

Today's world is in a state of constant change. But one thing remains year after year: the necessity for good etiquette. This 19th edition of Emily Post's Etiquette offers insight and wisdom on a variety of new topics and fresh advice on classic conundrums, including:

  • Social media
  • Living with neighbors
  • Networking and job seeking
  • Office issues
  • Sports and recreation
  • Entertaining at home and celebrations
  • Weddings
  • Invitations
  • Loss, grieving, and condolences
  • Table manners
  • While they offer useful information on the practical—from table settings and introductions to thank-you notes and condolences—the Posts make it clear why good etiquette matters. Etiquette is a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others, they remind us. Ultimately, being considerate, respectful, and honest is what's really important in building positive relationships. "Please" and "thank you" do go a long way, and whether it's a handshake, a hug, or a friend request, it's the underlying sincerity and good intentions behind any action that matter most.
