Have you ever been in a situation in which you were caught off guard, left speechless, or, worse yet, put your foot in your mouth?
This easily accessible book focuses on those moments when knowing exactly what to say is both a challenge and important. From the light-hearted "how to react when your boyfriend gives you a blender as a gift" or "what to say when you run into another lady at a party wearing exactly the same dress" to the more serious "what to say to a friend who has had a miscarriage or to a friend who has suffered the sudden death of a parent."
As A Lady Would Say differs from other etiquette books. It not only offers suggestions for the correct thing to say in more than 100 social situations, but it gives humorous examples of the wrong thing to say as well. Saying the right thing requires a little logic, a bit of forethought, and a great deal of consideration for others. With the advice provided in this book, a lady will never need to stumble or stutter again.

I found this to be a helpful book. It's not always easy to know what to say in awkward situations and this book gives good examples of what to say and most importantly what NOT to say! It also gives tips on how to handle yourself if you happen to stick your foot in your mouth. This book is not an old fashioned one as the title might suggest but rather a modern guide to dealing with today's uncomfortable social situations which most women encounter at some point in their lives...Examples: What do you do if someone shows you photos of their ugly newborn? What do you do if someone gives you a back handed compliment? What can you say if someone is wearing the same outfit as you? What do you say to someone who just had plastic surgery? What to do if you get a call on your cell phone in public, etc...The book could have been longer in my opinion but overall I think it was a good read. It might also make a great (though not so subtle) gift for rude friends or family members. Either way, I...
I was reminded of several things I've which could have been handled better. Amusing while not to uppity or outlandish.
This book was very good and I enjoyed reading it as it was set up. It is not a book to sit and read through in one sitting, but more of an enjoyable book to read in increments and enjoy as a reference. It was a good reminder of basic manners and contained many scenarios that we all face.
