I would love this book! I’m constantly saying the wrong thing. I read the stories on here and more often than I care to say, I think, “Oh my. I’VE done that.”

I’d love a copy. I do occasionally put my foot in my mouth and say the wrong thing.

Would make a great “hint” to guests with it sitting on the coffee table ;)

When I see someone with impeccable manners, especially a child, it’s such a joy. I sometimes stumble with what to say, and would like to be more gracious, and would very much appreciate a copy of this book. Best regards, Jo-Ann Fagan

I find myself relatively savvy in social situations, except when meeting someone who has recently experienced a death in their family/social circle. I feel like I trip all over myself. I’d love to see what Miss Manners recommends…

I’d love a copy too – I have many of Miss Manners’ books, but none of her Basic Training series…
