"Sadly, this important, thoughtful, and oh-so-needed guide to today's desirable social and table manners and behaviors by the well-known restaurateur and chef is quite dry. It lacks the humor necessary to entertainingly soften the blow of learning just how rude much of society has become. Along with the less than perfect audio quality, Tower's tone comes off as more than a bit snooty. Dress codes, tipping, doggie bags, texting, and use of mobile devices at the table are all thoughtfully and articulately discussed, but the delivery doesn't have enough magic to engage the listener.
