2.0 étoiles sur 5 Misnomer Title 10 novembre 2004
Par Elizabeth Stone - Publié sur
I was disappointed in this book. The title should have been something like, "A Lady Does or Does Not . . . ." The book gives many "lady" imperatives, but does not give as many specifics on "HOW to Be a Lady." An example is the imperative, "A lady knows when it is acceptable to drink through a straw." That's it; there is no further information as to the next obvious question: When is it acceptable for a lady to drink through a straw? Also it bothered me about some incorrect grammar. I know that "a lady does not correct another's grammar," but in these published words, someone fell down on the job of editing. There were several instances of incorrect subject-verb agreement. One would expect a lady to know better or know that she needs aid in the written English before putting ink to published page. Overall this book is too simplistic and does not live up to the title of "HOW To Be a Lady."

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Pleasing to look at...not much substance 31 juillet 2005
Par Sonja Straus - Publié sur
I bought this to add to my growing collection of etiquette books, but it's less a book of etiquette advice (no real guidelines) and more a book of brief, isolated observations about what kind of person aspiring ladies would like to be ("A lady always knows when to X," "A lady will know how to Y").

Forgive me for pointing out that someone purchasing this book probably already has a fair idea of these kinds of things. That's why they are trying to learn how to become a lady.

The text is sparse, very large and highly stylized with wide margins. It's cute for a coffee table, a gift basket, or other decorating purposes, but if you're looking for an etiquette guide to know HOW to become more lady-like, this book is not for you.

For a catch all reference work, invest in a relatively up to date version of Emily Post's, Amy Vanderbilt's, or Laeticia Baldridge's etiquette books, the first being my favorite. If you'd like something more anecdote/situation driven, try the Miss Manners books by Judith Martin.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Trite and to put it politely, "it stunk!" 22 janvier 2006
Par Denise Marie Fezza - Publié sur
This book was trite. I bought it with high hopes and it did have some worthwhile pointers, but it seemed to be disorganized and the information wasn't laid out in a way that you could refer to it. I read through the whole thing in a couple of hours and the one pointer that came up about 3 or 4 times was how it was not lady-like to leave sanitary napkins in other people's homes if you are an overnight guest. This struck me as strange not only because it was mentioned at least 4 times, but I cannot imagine "packing-out" my trash like this, especially if I were a guest for a number of days. It also mentioned what a lady does when she's had to much to drink, I think that it is not lady-like to have so much to drink that you cannot get home, etc. it probably should mention that over-indulging is not lady-like. I plan to return this book because it lacked a lot and next time I plan to buy Emily Post.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Simplistic 30 décembre 2004
Par L. Terwilliger - Publié sur
This book is simplistic and certainly does not go into much detail. Instead, it is filled with statements of what a lady does or does not do. There is very little advice in this book that is fully explained, but reading it somehow had a calming soothing effect on me. I did retrieve some valuable advice from it. It makes a delightful gift book but perhaps not meaty enough for your own consumption.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful but slightly incomplete.. 9 juillet 2003
Par Shawna Duvall - Publié sur
This book has wonderful tips and ideas. What I love most about it is that they put the ideas in short "quote type sentences" so you can read just a couple and come back to it later with out missing a beat. The only downside is that some of the tips are unclear, e.g. "A lady knows when to drink through a straw.". But if you don't know when that is...not real helpful there. Other than that book is great!
