Emily Post's revolutionary 1922 book jettisoned rigid Victorian rules and viewed manners as adaptable to the times and belonging to people from all walks of life. Despite today's "anything goes" attitude, research and the many questions sent to Peggy Post's columns and to the Post Institute website show that Americans remain interested in the basic courtesies and seek the self-confidence, positive image, and improved relationships that come from dealing respectfully with others. This new edition includes: 20 all-new chapters: Today's Families; Dating, "Netiquette"; The Home Office; Dealing with Rudeness; New Times, New Traditions; Separation and Divorce, and more. 2 all-new sections: Children and Teenagers (raising well-mannered children) and Relationships (from stepfamily harmony to noxious neighbours) New topics: How to have an argument, Instant messaging etiquette, re-gifting, 10 e-mail transgressions, 4 cell phone never-evers, today's 12 rudest behaviours, travel etiquette, same-sex wedding ceremonies...etc Updates on: holiday tipping (who/how much), when thank you notes are optional, new wedding trends, observing/attending others' holy days/ceremonies, and more
