We adore the timeless etiquette advice and knowledge of the late Emily Post. Although her book “Etiquette in Business, in Politics and at Home” which is often just referred to as “Etiquette” was not her first book, it was by far her most successful.
Ms. Post set the gold standard, and the newest edition, the 18th edition, of her classic is still the standing reference for etiquette.
Today Ms. Post’s legacy continues through her family and The Emily Post Institute. The Institute has a great website to help us tackle new etiquette challenges including social media, cell phones, and email. It is a great reference tool that we often quote on Twitter.
“Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.”
