about

Completely revised and updated with a focus on civility and inclusion, the 19th edition of Emily Post’s Etiquette is the most trusted resource for navigating life’s every situation

From social networking to social graces, Emily Post is the definitive source on etiquette for generations of Americans. That tradition continues with the fully revised and updated 19th edition of Etiquette. Authored by etiquette experts Lizzie Post and Daniel Post Senning—Emily Post’s great-great grandchildren—this edition tackles classic etiquette and manners advice with an eye toward diversity and the contemporary sensibility that etiquette is defined by consideration, respect, and honesty.

As our personal and professional networks grow, our lives become more intertwined. This 19th edition offers insight and wisdom with a fresh approach that directly reflects today’s social landscape. Emily Post’s Etiquette incorporates an even broader spectrum of issues while still addressing the traditions that Americans appreciate, including:

  • Weddings
  • Invitations
  • Loss, grieving, and condolences
  • Entertaining at home and planning celebrations
  • Table manners
  • Greetings and introductions
  • Social media and personal branding
  • Political conversations
  • Living with neighbors
  • Digital networking and job seeking
  • The workplace
  • Sports, gaming, and recreation

Emily Post’s Etiquette also includes advice on names and titles—including Mx.—dress codes, invitations and gift-giving, thank-you notes and common courtesies, tipping and dining out, dating, and life milestones. It is the ultimate guide for anyone concerned with civility, inclusion, and kindness.

Though times change, the principles of good etiquette remain the same. Above all, manners are a sensitive awareness of the needs of others—sincerity and good intentions always matter more than knowing which fork to use.

The Emily Post Institute, Inc., is one of America’s most unique family businesses. In addition to authoring books, the Institute provides business etiquette seminars and e-learning courses worldwide, hosts the weekly Q&A podcast Awesome Etiquette and trains those interested in teaching Emily Post Etiquette

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful but not terrifically new An imposing (700+ page) book in the "general etiquette" category. New topics include use of emojis (optional, and conservative) and rules for women's doffing of hats (same as men for the ubiquitous baseball cap; for fancy ones, to avoid blocking someone's view). However, much of this book is not new since there are prior editions from 2006 and 2011. Useful for someone starting out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful but not terribly new A large (700+ pages) book in the "general etiquette" tradition. New topics covered include proper use of emojis (optional, and conservative) and proper headwear for women (same as men for the ubiquitous baseball cap; remove a fancy one that block's people's vision). However, much of this book is not new as there were prior editions in 2006 and 2011. A useful gift for someone starting out.
