KIRKUS REVIEW

Setting teen-agers off on the path of poise, propriety and promptness requires the answers provided in this compact compendium. Introductions and correspondence are covered well with suggestions for observance of unobtrusive conduct and appropriate behaviour on dates, as a house guest, as a traveler, on the telephone, and in business. It devotes a little attention to religious ceremonies, funerals, weddings, etc., which teen-agers encounter as well as their elders. The tone is commendable, treating etiquette with gravity. Of course, seeing that this book reaches the girls and boys who need it most is a problem. Certainly there is the need for emphasis on acceptable codes of conduct. Perhaps librarians can place this where it will do the most good.
