Description

Instantly acquire all the knowledge you need to pass as an expert in the world of etiquette and high society. Know what to say, what not to say, where to be seen, and what and what not to wear. Never again be found wanting when asked if someone is a PLU or a NQOCD, why port should be passed to the left, or how many air kisses you should aim at the proffered cheek of someone you barely know. Arm yourself with the essential words or phrases which have entered the etiquette lexicon from pre-revolutionary France, and know not to mix up your droit du seigneur with your noblesse oblige. Bask in the admiration of your aristocratic hosts as you enquire politely about the place à table, pronounce confidently on whether the going is heavy or soft, and hold your own against the most sneering of posturing parvenus.

The author

William Hanson is one of the UK's leading etiquette consultants and society commentators. His life’s work has necessitated giving lessons all over the world in How To Be Nice and What Not To Do at every conceivable occasion. He has trained everyone from royalty, government officials, diplomats and VIPs who wish to integrate with British society to pupils at top public schools. He regularly graces uncomfortable television sofas to talk about good behavior, correcting the hosts when they call them ‘couches’. It was a tragic accident of birth that he was born without a title, but he has since gone on to defy the odds and become a proud member of the Royal Enclosure at Ascot.
