In an era of incivility, discover a timeless guide to good manners from First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt.

"The basis of all good human behavior is kindness," says Eleanor Roosevelt in this classic handbook, first published in 1962 as a "modern book of etiquette for modern Americans." As a politician, diplomat, and activist, as well as the longest-serving First Lady of the United States, Mrs. Roosevelt knew that thoughtful, civil behavior was essential to peaceful, productive relationships. In this etiquette guide, she teaches that decorum is not about strict adherence to formal rules; it is about approaching all social situations with consideration for others. She advises, "If ever you find yourself in a situation in which following a formal rule would be manifestly unkind, forget it, and be kind instead."

Drawing from her personal and professional experiences, Roosevelt covers a broad range of topics, including business dealings and family affairs, writing letters and receiving guests, and entertaining at home and traveling abroad. Beginning with the necessity of good manners between husband and wife, she considers the importance of courtesy in society at large and the role all Americans play as ambassadors of democracy while visiting foreign countries. In an era of incivility, Eleanor Roosevelt's Book of Common Sense Etiquette is more relevant than ever.
