A revival of Ita Buttrose's Every Occasion: The Guide to Modern Etiquette (1985), this is a sound, straightforward guide to modern Australian manners from Australia's etiquette queen. Buttrose touches on behaviour surrounding occasions such as weddings and funerals, and deals with detailed yet baffling questions such as how to set the table and how to carve meat for a dinner party. Written in a personal style, A Guide to Australian Etiquette is a reliable and authorative guide for anyone wanting to possess good manners.
'Good manners give a person increased self-confidence and the ability to be at ease in most situations. Good manners mean being kind and thoughtful to others, making allowances for their shortcomings, and being considerate about their feelings.'
Ita Buttrose has been an inspiration to generations of Australian women. In the course of her phenomenal media career she has seen how important etiquette is in every aspect of life, from the personal to the professional. Correct etiquette not only ensures that a meal will be pleasant or a wedding will run smoothly, it can also make or break a career.
