From New York Times best-selling author of Adulting: How to Become a Grown-up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps comes a funny, charming guide to modern civility in these - yes, we'll say it - rather uncivil times.
Graciousness is practicing the arts of kindness, thoughtfulness, good manners, humanity, and basic decency. As a bonus, it makes your life and even the world (or at least the room you're in) much lovelier.
It's not about memorizing every rule of traditional etiquette to a T (though there is so much there to explore!) or spending all your time maintaining a spotless house. It's about approaching the world with compassion, conviction, self-confidence, and wholeheartedness, whether you're at the Met Gala or saying good morning to a convenience store clerk.
From chatting easily with anyone to mastering the subtleties of social media etiquette (hint: block early, block often), Brown has talked to gracious women and men all over the country to give you easy ways to embody your own graciousness.
Throughout the book, she provides tips on how to deal with the people and circumstances that challenge even the most socially graceful among us, advice on how to practice graciousness in everyday life, and thoughtful discussions on being kind to those around you without ever losing your sense of self.
With the wisdom of gracious folk ranging from celebrities to the author's mother-in-law, this book explains the perspective, actions - and, sometimes, inaction - that help us move smoothly and effectively through whatever life tosses at us.

Don't BUY Audible version of this book!
The file dowloaded in a manner that when imported into iTunes did not show any chapters -- just one large file all bunched together. So good luck trying to skip to a certain chapter, or return to a specific point later on. Really - the CDs I used 20 years ago were better an easier than this download! This is not the way it was advertised on the website at all.
I may never buy another AUDIBLE product again, if this is how they do all their downloads. I am considering filling an BBB complaint for false advertisement...and placing a copy on YELP.
I may never buy another AUDIBLE product again, if this is how they do all their downloads. I am considering filling an BBB complaint for false advertisement...and placing a copy on YELP. I will also place this comment on the main AMAZON website.
I was irritated and angered at the poor structure and controllability of the download...and I haven't even gotten to the content of the book....
