About the Book


There are times in all our lives when we feel uncertain of how to act for the best - what to do, what to wear, what to say and how to say it. These are questions of etiquette and finding the right answer can mean the difference between embarrassment and charming self-assurance, between causing all manner of unholy offence and being a model of smooth diplomacy. And to make matters worse, it is all made much more difficult today by the confusing demands of political correctness and the shifting social mores of our time. But here to rescue us in our distress is Henry, an effortlessly refined English gentleman with a sly line in humour, exceptionally good taste, impeccable manners, and an unerring knack for doing the right thing, at the right time, in the right way, wearing just the right colour socks. So whether it's the age-old problem of which fork to use, the terror of not knowing how to address the President if he happens to drop in for a chat, or thorny 21st century questions of 'technetiquette', Henry is the man with the answers - and the good manners to share them.
