    While some of the information in this book is out of date or otherwise not useful (I doubt I will meet the Queen of England or the Pope), I find a lot of this information is on how to conduct yourself with friends, at the office or in various social situations. I took a lot out of this book because ladies definitely feel that manners are attractive, I would definitely recommend this book to my friends.
