Overview
-

Society has changed dramatically. We live in an increasingly informal world. We have in many ways become disrespectful of rules and have no time for the old order and taboos. Authority and the grace of age, two important pillars of etiquette, are no longer regarded. 

With his infectious charm and sharp wit Noel Cunningham shares with you his tips on sailing through life’s events, enabling people to be themselves, while solving the thorny issues of which fork to use, who goes through a door first, how to attend an important interview. The correct way of doing those things will become clear.

• Are you confused about how to set a formal dining table?

• Is it acceptable to hold doors open?

• How to address the thorny question of mobile phones and gadgets

Noel’s book is a fun and informative guide, to help us navigate modern-day life with class and good humour.
