A long list of disjointed rules. Very basic.
What disappointed you about Modern Scholar: On Your Best Behavior?
Two things: one, it's extremely basic -- it's like etiquette for cavemen. You'll hear pearls like "don't touch a pregnant woman's stomach" and "it's okay to open the door for a pregnant woman without asking her for permission." Two, worst of all, there are no _principles_ given, it's merely a list of disjointed "things one should do". There is nothing in the way of "it's your duty to maintain the good mood of your guests, even if you are in severe discomfort yourself, because of reasons x, y and z". For a $40 (!) "book", this is just ridiculous.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Something else on etiquette, specifically in business.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I think it's the author reading. He's ok, but not professional.
