The Indispensable Handbook.
There is no better time than now for a definitive guide to contemporary civilised living. As traditional codes of behaviour have given way to an increasingly informal society, many people are disconcerted by the current lack of guidelines. The established rules are as important as ever, but need adaptation for the complications and developments of the twenty-first century.
This guide cuts through the confusion to combine the very best of traditional standards of conduct with acceptable modern innovations. Packed with no-nonsense step-by-step advice, it covers everything from basic table manners to how to equip yourself at the grandest royal and diplomatic gatherings.
Written with John Morgan's customary clarity and wit, this book celebrates the charm, beauty and fascination of classic good manners and their enduring role in civilised society.
