I have not read much about this particular time period, but this was a great peek into the lives, loves and losses of Emily Price Post and her peers.
Would you consider the audio edition of Emily Post to be better than the print version?
Yes, but only because I prefer audio over print. This book would be enjoyable in either, 'tho the print version probably weighs a ton!
What did you like best about this story?
The revelations about the true meaning of the word "etiquette". That sounds boring but believe me it is not. This story starts out well and gets better and more interesting as it unfolds. Great research!
Any additional comments?
I can't seem to do justice to this book. It is one of my top tens, if you like the gilded age and enjoy reading the lifestyle of the rich and famous, you will love this. But there is much more to it. It really is a social history and a fascinating one. The 1922 Emily Post Etiquette is available on Kindle (very inexpensive) and is a fascinating read after listening to this book, especially when you contrast it with the current Emily Post which is still being revised and published by the Emily Post Institute.
