As a rule, I like Celia Rivenbark's wit. I say that as a new fan, but I've heard her speak and read some of her columns. However I probably should have known better than to choose this book to be the first of hers that I read. I was hampered by the fact that I am not an etiquette buff and never have been. That said, her humor was spot on, skewering the chaotic results etiquette improperly applied can cause with acidic accuracy. At the same time, when she plumped for the side of etiquette, her portrayal of the hapless flouters of the rules was still cloaked in wit, sometimes gentle but unsettlingly pithy. Even when I found myself disagreeing with her topic or philophy, her classic gentle Southern approach to dismantling those she targeted was entertaining for those who like caustic comment dippedin honeysuckle and bourbon. Bless her heart.
