A Guide to Australian Etiquette


'Good manners give a person increased self-confidence and the ability to be at ease in most situations. Good manners mean being kind and thoughtful to others, making allowances for their shortcomings, and being considerate about their feelings.'

Ita Buttrose has been an inspiration to generations of Australian women. In the course of her phenomenal media career she has seen how important etiquette is in every aspect of life, from the personal to the professional. Correct etiquette not only ensures that a meal will be pleasant or a wedding will run smoothly, it can also make or break a career.

If you want to know how to:

- organise a wedding, from choosing a dress to deciding who sits where
- arrange a funeral
- prevent 'trolley rage' at the supermarket
- get in and out of a lift without it turning into a football scrum
- be the perfect guest at a dinner party
- host a business lunch
- carve a roast
- make a speech
- behave in a mosque

About the Author

Ita Buttrose
Ita Buttrose always wanted to write and What is Love? marks a natural progression in her long and distinguished career, which began when she was just fifteen. Since then she has worked for Australia's major newspaper and magazine companies as writer, editor, editor-in-chief and publisher. She has also run her own publishing company and edited its flagship title ITA magazine, for six years. Ita's success has made her a household name in Australia. She is equally at home on television and radio, where she has hosted prime-time shows on Sydney's leading talkback stations. Currently she is a panellist on the popular show Beauty and the Beast, on Foxtel and Network Ten, and a columnist with The Australian Women's Weekly and the Courier Group of newspapers. Buttrose is also a prolific author and has published nine books, including her autobiography, A Passionate Life. In 2011 Penguin published A Guide to Australian Etiquette. Ita has two children and lives in Sydney.
