Manners That Matter Most is a great little book that lays out the basics of grace, etiquette, and good manners in one beautiful package.

...an excellent little book. Manners and Etiquette sound old fashioned nowadays. And in a way, they are, it is. Because we're a mess now. The lack thereof is epidemic and the result is we aren't relating to each other as easily as strangers might/should/could/would. I know a book isn't going to make the difference. I don't know what will. But it is clear to me at this late age that I've only got along in this life with the basics that we call Manners and Etiquette. It's the only way we can all get along. Eding's book is comprehensive, serious, easy to read, and actually inspiring on a certain level. -- David Patrick Columbia, New York Social Diary
