Reviews - What do our customers think?
A great book   Dec 28, 2008
Thank you to the author and publisher for writting this book. I read the entire book, and keep it close by to go back to it. Ive also shared it with some friends. This book should be read by every woman. We are All ladies. And this book is just perfect. Thanks again for having this book. You won't regrest purchasing this book, and reading it over and over.
 
Charm School in a Book  Jan 10, 2008
This is a good primer for people who need to improve their manners, and it's a great book for brushing up on them. I love books like this, and this one is outstanding. The author wrote another book similar to this called "As A Lady Would Say," which I gave four stars. This one gets five because it is absolutely perfect.
 
is this really a joke book?  Jun 7, 2007
I bought this book looking for a reference for teenagers on how to make decisions about proper ladylike behavior, manners and fashion. Instead, it has become one of our favorite "make funny quotes" about books. Some of the items listed are far outdated and downright silly, such as "A lady wears clean and fresh underwear"......give me a break!! Stick with Emily Posts Etiquette book. She addresses the real life issues associated with everyday life.
 
Incomplete  May 11, 2007
I agree with another reviewer that this book is incomplete in its advice on "how to be a lady". In my very humble opinion, a lady would have provided further explanation instead of repeated, one-sentence instructions. Some issues only require one sentence, but other issues do require some instruction for those who are less-educated on the finer details of etiquette.
 
Needs a more apt title, but is a good little book.  Mar 30, 2007
If this book had a better title, something more approriate, I'd give it 5 stars. I was misled about what information the book would give me because the title made it seam like a book on etiquette and manners. It does list habits and behaviors indicative of a lady with a dash of pointers on such things as seating a table, and it hints at the core of what makes a lady a lady, but it is too lightweight and never really hits the essence of what makes a lady. For example, instead of a section on how to be a good friend, it says "A lady knows how to be a friend to other ladies as well as gentlemen." It only scratches the surface of behaviors and attitudes a lady exemplifies. It lists courtesies a lady would have in dealing with other people. This is a really light read broken down in many places to mere sentences on a topic- very few paragraphs. It was a great read for me on vacation since I was looking for something lightweight before bed anyway, and I did learn or be reminded of a few things. I think with a more apt title, it would have been a 5-star. This would make an excellent book to gift to a teenager for high school graduation (with money, of course) or a recital gift. I would even think it appropriate to give to a recent college grad or any young 20something-year-old, as long as the recipient is someone who values and wants to improve her own courtesy and decorum. A good book of this nature written in a similar manner for men is From Clueless to Class Act: Manners for the Modern Man. It is slightly more specific than this book.
