Look forward to a faux pas-free future.

As kids it seemed so simple: mind your ps and qs, don’t run with scissors, pleases and thank-yous, and never talk with your mouth full. But as adults in this modern world, we’re judged on everything from how we sign off our emails to the way we negotiate a footpath to the way we park our cars and the frequency with which we bathe. Nobody can be expected to get everything right. But it doesn’t hurt to strive to be better, right? And from your soapbox of social superiority, you’ll be free to cast judgement on those beneath. Here are some books to help you negotiate this complex life.
