Publisher's Summary

In this modern, stress-filled time, people face many awkward situations: the dating scene with all its pitfalls; friends going through grief and loss; job difficulties and other personal problems; the woes of love, friendship, and profession.
To avoid gaffes and goofs and other embarrassments, we need to bring our social I.Q. into the 21st century. This book defines manners and etiquette for how we live today and shows readers how to keep their mouths foot-free. Among the topics covered:

How to mix business and social relationships
Thank-you notes and why they are indispensable
E-mail versus snail mail (guess which one is better)
How to behave on a first date
Racism, politics, and sex
RSVP or else!
The Ten Commandments of social I.Q.
The basics of friendship
The book also includes a social I.Q. test, and the author dares readers to improve their score before the "final exam", given at the end of the book. Raise Your Social I.Q. shows readers how to live better, happier, and nicer, and how to help rid the planet of bad manners and incivility.

I've deleted this from my list afte one listening

If Audible offered a refund I would like it for this.

The Book does cover an element of respectful behaviour and etiquette.

But mostly gives abstract 'rules' which may be fine for young, singles in the LA enteertainment industry.

But I am a married London civil servant and very few on these rules apply.

I'm sure this LA publicity agent might patronisingly suggest his rule do apply - but he is his well out of his territory.

The choice of reader did not help either. I prefer someone who closely matches the sex, type and background of the author - not the opposite.
