photoIn the not so distant past, etiquette classes were the domain of the ultra-rich who needed to perfect their country club manners. These days, 20 and 30-something ordinary Jills and Joes are signing up for etiquette classes. Books about etiquette are flying off the shelves and adult education classes are booked to the hilt.

What this e-mail, cell phone generation is learning is that manners matter.
Good manners are now seen as key to getting a good job, more confidence, even a date.

Hear about the evolving world of social etiquette from some of the best names in the business.
