"A useful guide to navigating the often confusing-and always evolving-world of manners at today's dinner table" (James Oseland, former editor-in-chief of Saveur magazine, author of Cradle of Flavor and judge on Top Chef Masters). What's the right way to hold a wine glass? What's an appropriate gift to bring a host? How should you correctly introduce guests to each other? What should you do if you don't want to drink alcohol at a cocktail party? In Modern American Manners you'll find sensible, easy-to-follow answers to these and many other etiquette questions. With chapters covering how to be a good host, how to be a good guest, and how to behave at business events, cocktail parties, formal dinners, and restaurants, this is the perfect handbook to help you navigate any social situation-including how to handle pet peeves with grace and civility. Lavishly illustrated with full-color photographs that highlight both good and bad table manners, Modern American Manners is full of friendly advice for business professionals, college students entering the workplace, and anyone needing a refresher course-or an introduction-to proper behavior. "Should be a required reading not only for students and young professionals, but for everyone." -Joseph A. McInerney CHA, Emeritus President and Chief Executive Officer, American Hotel & Lodging Association "This book is the modern guide to manners, etiquette, and polite behavior that our society needs."-Darrin Siegfried, President Emeritus, The Sommelier Society of America, Inc.
