While beauty makes a first impression, charm lasts a lifetime.

It's the perfect simplicity of manners---a winsome blend of kindness, confidence, and grace.

First published in 1938, this classic compendium is overflowing with timeless advice to help guide you through a maze of social interactions with wit and finesse.

*How to engage in creative conversation

*How to be pleasant on paper and refined on the telephone

*How to choose your confidantes with care

*How to maintain peace in difficult situations

*How to find the most flattering clothing for your figure

*How to deflect unwanted advances

*How to be kind to atrocious people And much, much more...

Featuring original artwork, this delightful handbook proves that charm never, ever goes out of style.
