At the heart of Wells's timeless tips, you'll find that a true lady or gentleman must always have a sincere regard for others, good taste, and an excellent sense of self-command--qualities that will never fall out of fashion. Samuel R. Wells's How to Behave guides you through every social interaction with the courtesy, style, and grace of a proper time.
