Of all the women you know, how many of them would you describe as “a lady?” Naturally, you know women who are kind and intelligent, witty and resourceful; but a lady is an altogether different variety of female. She’s mindful of the effect she has on those around her, and she’s careful not to let her words or appearance betray her true intentions.

How to Be a Lady is a charming reminder of what it takes to be an exemplary woman—someone who knows how to breeze through an awkward conversation with poise, or delicately sidestep the beauty salon gossip. Candace Simpson-Giles delivers a delightful refresher course on what it means to be a lady among women.

Topics: Etiquette, Communication, Prescriptive, and How-To Guides

Being a lady in today's modern world will get you ahead in every facet of your life, so I definitely recommend this book. It's concise, brief and easy to read.
However, the themes are mixed up in most chapters, and it does not cover every single aspect of a lady's social and personal life.
I enjoyed very much reading the book and have added at least 10 behavior skills I didn't know or applied in my social life.read more

I am one of those individuals who feels that being a lady is sometimes overrated. Sometimes, there are situation that call for being a red-blooded woman, and that involves the occasional temper tantrum, the lack of courtesy, the excuse to just be a royal b**** once in awhile, and not care what a lady would do in your situation.However, I did find this to be a helpful book-telling you what is (and is not appropriate) for social situations and one's personal life. There are some things a lady would do, that I agree with, such as, if throwing a dinner party, do not let guests drive home drunk if they are intoxicated. However, there are other items I strongly disagree with, such as being a bridesmaid even when one does not really want to.The advice is good, but some should be taken with a grain of salt. I would rather be doing things that make me happy vs. being a lady just to appear polite for society.read more
