Debrett's A-Z of modern manners Debrett's Peerage Limited


You could wonder why a book about something as mundane as etiquette is in the collection of a National Library. Well, it might be old fashioned but manners are important and help us navigate more smoothly through the complexities of human relationships. This guide, on top of giving sound advice on various delicate matters ranging from the dreaded “faux pas” to the importance of making a good first impression, will give you the keys to become nothing less than perfect. It also constitutes a very entertaining read punctuated with great quotes from Gandhi to Shakespeare. And it is important to be reminded that “real manners are practiced by people who know how to make others around them feel at ease, how to make the world feel a more civilized, friendly and calm place, and who like to put others’ comfort ahead of their own.”
