By W S Norman
First published in 1958, Teach Yourself Good Manners is a fascinating guide packed full of both timeless advice and tips that in today's world will make you chuckle. So, if you've ever wondered how you should peel an apple at a dinner party, break-off an engagement or announce the birth of a baby in 'the proper manner', this is the book for you!
Originally published in 1958, Teach Yourself Good Manners is a fascinating guide, packed full of both timeless advice and tips that demonstrate just how much life has changed in the 60 years since it published.
Indeed, the author, W S Norman, would doubtless be horrified by modern manners and would implore us to study his rather uptight but very funny rules for modern living.
Amusing, intriguing and sometimes rather inspiring, this handbook is a window into how life would have looked had we lived in a 'a simpler age' - in which, confusingly, they had rather a lot of strange rules.
Since 1938, millions of people have learned to do the things they love with Teach Yourself. Welcome to the how-to guides that changed the modern world.
W S Norman was an expert in etiquette and the author of Teach Yourself Etiquette and Good Manners, which was first published in 1958.
