User reviews
I purchased Etiquette by Emily Post many years ago, loaned it to a friend and never got it back (talk about poor manners!), so when I decided to get a new copy of it, I was delighted to discover that Peggy Post generously modernized it for our digital world. The heart of Etiquette is closely reminiscent of what we learned in kindergarten: don't butt in line, be polite, treat other people's things better than your own, etc. This is no snob book for the privileged and the preppy - it is a real-life guide on what's appropriate in every conceivable social situation and keeps you from embarrassing yourself because you don't know which fork to use or how to compose a letter to an elected official.

It is written in a format that is not condescending to the reading and is easy to navigate quickly to the information you need. Today's society is in desperate need of serious guidance and reminders of how to speak to and treat others with respect (I'm looking at you, Facebookers). The Golden Rule should be this book's title and should be required teaching to everyone child in school. And a great majority of adults.

While the book is chock full of detailed what to and not to do, the most impressive points to me were the explanations of why certain etiquettes exists. Putting heart in to what's usually regarded as a mental or social game, Ms. Post breathes a life of understanding into what otherwise would be a trite lexicon of customs. To the modern individual, it promotes ideas of selfless acts and words to create a better society, just be advised of the pitfalls of judgementalism, acts for the sake of routine, and false demeanor. Putting these latter three social sins aside, the book can be quite beneficial as well as enjoyable!
Everyone should have this book on their shelf and give it a good 30-60 minute skim at some point (if not once a year). There is a huge amount to be learned for EVERYONE and you will be very surprised how many little things you notice other people doing correctly (or incorrectly) that you never noticed before. It doesn't mean you need to be a 24-7 etiquette snob, but it's great to be able to pull it out of your memory when the occasion calls for it. If I go to a nice executive business dinner now, I notice that half the people are following the subtle rules of etiquette that I never even noticed before. It's frankly a little embarrassing that I made it so long not knowing!
I have the original version on the kindle which is free and like it a lot even if it is so out of date. Some have observed, and so did I, that it was very prescriptive or didactic. It gave you more than the description of etiquette, but the why as well. Emily's voice came out clearly in the first edition, I felt her instructing me and others as to why we should have good manners. For example, I read the part on instructing children to have good table manners and I felt she explained why it was important and made me feel responsible for their training (she used the word and compared them to puppies). This edition as others as well are updated, thus eliminating prescription for description. It is like reading a typical how to. The part on instructing children is gone. I am not that old, but I think our society needs to know why we should have good manners or etiquette not just a list of what we should do without the moral imperative to do so. I think this edition is good for the how to, but if you are like me, stick to the older(st) edition. I like Mrs. Post's voice and instruction.
This book promotes kindness, politeness, and appropriateness as a lifestyle. The situations, of course, are entirely outmoded -- almost 100 years old -- but an intelligent reader can read between the lines to discern the appropriate, polite, and kind way to behave in contemporary situations. Simply because of my own interests, I particularly like Mrs. Post's observations on style and dress; her comments about fashion are spot-on, even for the 21st century. Because of changes in dress over the course of the 20th century, her list of clothing appropriate for a well-bred man can be used even for a contemporary woman to build her own wardrobe -- with reading between the lines and discernment, of course.
I saw this book at a friend's house, and was immediate intrigued. I have always enjoyed reading about etiquette and manners, and am rather particular about my own etiquette. I had to get this book! I purchased it and found it everything I had expected. If you are wanting to know what a proper place setting for a formal dinner looks like, here's your answer. If you want to know how to word an invitation, this is the place to go. If you want to know the way to properly introduce people, this book has every imaginable instance. Some things are a little bit dated. This is an older book, but most things still apply. I look at it a lot. It isn't really an entertainment read, though. Mainly reference.
Let's skip over all that could be said about the lack of etiquette (or even awareness of other people) in today's culture. Let's be polite and not put anybody down. And let's show some goodwill for our fellow citizens, and not grill them when they have an etiquette lapse.

I am surely no etiquette pro... I live in rural New Mexico now, not the Upper East Side. But whether you are in a co-op on Carnegie Hill or 30 miles west of Silver City, etiquette still applies. And, frankly, etiquette applies even more when the other party is not practicing their etiquette.

I have this and Miss Manner's most current tome on behavior. I like Miss Manners a bit more because she is funnier, but Emily Post is a necessary backup. It's interesting, too, because sometimes the two sources disagree.

Whether you need this now for an interview, or you will need this 3 years from now to succeed on a visit to one of the "old" families in New Orleans, you need it. If you can not afford it, that's fine. Make sure your library has a copy. If they don't, make them get one. But do make sure they get the most recent one.
