Description

Product Description

Here is the perfect little book for anyone—teenage or otherwise—who has ever wanted to master the art of good table manners. Written by Walter Hoving, former chairman of Tiffany''s of New York, it is a step-by-step introduction to all the basics, from the moment the meal begins ("It is customary for the young man to help the young lady on his right to be seated") to the time it ends ("Remember that a dinner party is not a funeral, nor has your hostess invited you because she thinks you are in dire need of food. You''re there to be entertaining"). In addition to the essentials about silverware, service, and sociability, it includes many of the fine points, too—the correct way to hold a fish fork, how to eat an artichoke properly, and, best of all, how to be a gracious dining companion.

Concise, witty, and illustrated with humor and style by Joe Eula, this classic guide to good table manners has delighted readers of all ages for more than 50 years.

From the Inside Flap

Written by the former chairman of Tiffany''s, this is a simplified, illustrated guide to basic table manners for anyone--teenaged or not--who''d like to dine correctly. More than a handbook on which fork to use, this small volume explains how to be graceful and sociable when dining out and at home.

I don''t understand some of the reviews I''ve read AGAIN. Written in 1961 by at New Yorker (I was raised in the ''50''s & 60''s in Connecticut) it is difficult to fathom unless the user is planning on dinner at Downton Abbey. The style of using the knife in the right to push food onto the fork in the left is very British, not how we eat here in the USA. And it gives as a ''don''t,'' placing the knife across the edge of the plate at the 1:30 when put down. ''And don''t be switching the fork back and forth...as I have been doing all my life. Nowhere does is say, don''t rest your arm on the table and lower your mouth to the fork. I could go on...

Excellent. I heard this reviewed on Public Radio as "the best book" regarding manners and bought one for each of my grandchildren. They didn''t love them, and I noticed they sat up straighter and placed their utensils neatly and correctly on their plates after they had finished eating. I must order another now for myself.

I purchased this book to share with my granddaughter and use as a guideline for some special meals together. The only thing I liked about the book was that it was a quick read and I was out of my misery in less than 30 minutes. Most of the content is very dated and the illustrations are absurd. I wouldn''t wish this book on any teenager. My copy is in the trash.
P.S. I never write reviews for my purchases. This book forced me to speak up!

Pequeña joya con tapa dura. Escrito en inglés es una buena manera de que mi hija aprenda inglés y modales a la vez. Con la estética de Tiffany’s es todo un acierto en cuanto a diseño.
