Description
Author and etiquette maven Anna Post demonstrates that President Obama is more than our political leadera hea's also a worthy role model when it comes to good manners. The perfect graduation title.
In "Mr. Manners: Lessons from Obama on Civility," author and etiquette maven Anna Post demonstrates that President Obama is more than our political leader--he's also a worthy role model when it comes to good manners.
His intelligence and good looks notwithstanding, there's no doubt President Obama's courteousness played a significant role in his swift and historic rise to the highest office in the land. In "Mr. Manners," Post breaks down the president's manners, from the slightest kind gesture to the grandest of considerate deeds, and shows how we can apply such thoughtfulness in our own daily lives.
With photography capturing President Obama committing everyday acts of civility and complemented by Post's fun yet authoritative commentary, "Mr. Manners" graciously reinforces the case that Emily Post and her descendants have been making for decades: courtesy is in our nation's best interest.
