Great book about Etiquette for Modern Times

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, For some of my Mom friend's with young men. To teach manners in a way that applies to them specifically.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Overall all the tips in the book were very informative, well described and applicable.

Have you listened to any of Madonna Lucey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't. She has a very precise and soothing voice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

This is something that if you start with young kids will follow them into adulthood:

"Getting your child involved in the community has many benefits. It will help him to become knowledgeable about local culture and customs, and it will keep him up on current events in the area as well. It also allows him to personal bonds with the people in his environment. There are many ways to get your child involved. Fairs, festivals and community performances are some of the many events in which he can participate."

Social and community involvement are something lacking in our strictly online society today. I am glad the author added this to the book.

Any additional comments?

Each chapter starts with a quote and I like that it sets the tone for the next reading parts.The tips and descriptions of etiquette and teaching young children are easy to comprehend.I enjoyed this audio book very much.

Great refresher for myself and my kids

I really enjoyed this book. I think good manners and sophistication are becoming a lost art. So many people aren't even taught manners anymore and are at a loss when they want to instill them in their children. More than manners, this book teaches sophistication. My only complaint is that so many of the suggestions for bringing up sophisticated children require that you have more money than most people - for example, taking your children to bespoke clothing stores. I can't afford that for myself, much less for my children who grow into a bigger size every year. Other than that, I really liked the book. Though I was raised with manners, I've become lazy and sloppy as time has gone on and the stresses of my day catch up to me. I'm really excited to start training my children, as well as having the review for myself.
