‘Exact’ is how I would describe this book. Candace Simpson-Giles simply tells the lady in waiting what she is to do and what she isn’t to do matter-of-factly, an approach I appreciate 100%. She is not kept guessing or given double meanings.

This book covers etiquette for a variety of social situations including dinners, funerals, meeting the Queen, a day at the gym, travelling on an airplane and many others. It covers what a lady says, how she dresses and relates with others,
and touches on issues of extreme etiquette.

It does not deal with technology on a large scale, but makes reference to turning off phones at events and meetings. I also like how Candace implores ladies not to waste time on the ATM machine, but to be considerate of others standing on the line.

I got this book about 4 years ago, and I’ve read it so many times. It is my go-to-book for etiquette energy. Whenever I gloss through a page, I just feel the urge to sit up straight or behave myself. Lool

There’s an updated version which I haven’t read, but I hope to do so as soon as I can😊
