Publisher's Summary

A charming reminder of what it takes to be an exemplary woman - someone who is mindful of the effect she has on others and knows how to breeze through an awkward conversation with poise.

Of all the women you know, how many of them would you describe as "a lady"? Naturally, you know women who are kind and intelligent, witty and resourceful; but a lady is an altogether different variety of female. She's mindful of the effect she has on those around her, and she's careful not to let her words or appearance betray her true intentions.

How to Be a Lady is a charming reminder of what it takes to be an exemplary woman - someone who knows how to breeze through an awkward conversation with poise, or delicately sidestep the beauty salon gossip. Candace Simpson-Giles delivers a delightful refresher course on what it means to be a lady among women.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Ladylike Insporation

The only disagreeable moment was when they insisted on a lady not lying on her resume. Silly! A smart lady knows how the world works outside of the feminine realm. I love this book for feminine inspo while Ifold laundry and eat, etc.

more useful to a modern monarch

Most of this book is useless to the every day lady. I enjoyed this book and I plan on following it's advice but I can't give it more than 3 stars b.c so much doesn't apply to me (or anyone I know). As well as the fact that so much wasn't explained. For example, "a lady knows how to address a senior authority figure, she know that meeting such a person calls for more respect than meeting a peer..." And just moves on w.o giving more of an explanation or example. But will explain the reasoning or etiquette behind leaving a theatre during a coughing fit. This book would be more fitting for me if I were a Dutchess, but I'm just a 23 year old woman looking for a guide to politeness and etiquette to improve the quality of my life and relationships. I'm going to have to keep searching, but this was a nice preview. I hope it will be more helpful to others!

A lot of time could have been saved not repeating two words...

“A lady knows what colors, fabrics and patterns do nothing for her.” - from the department of the obvious

“A lady doesn’t text or talk when visiting others or when at a place of business” - that one is one I wish more people nowadays would follow.

It was okay but so repetitive with the “a lady....” repeated hundred of times.

I felt it was more like Miss Manners than anything particularly earth shattering.

It mostly made me think of classless people I know and reassure me that I’m not a snob for thinking, “manners never go out of style.”
