Manners with Sybil

You’ve Come Along Way Sybil Macintosh

Teen etiquette brought to you by the ever so crass and awful, Sybil Macintosh. My mother would say she evidently was raised by wolves. There are chapters on all sorts of topics, introductions, using the telephone, thank you notes, table manners, and parties. Helpfully, there are also tips on looking good as well. For 1974, this is at least more interesting than many of the etiquette and grooming books for teen I have seen. Since I was also a teen in 1974, I was the target market for this book.

Unfortunately, this book does not really help teens in 2016. With no discussions on personal boundaries, Internet etiquette and other tech issues, this book is not helpful. I am also thinking that teens are not looking up from the phones long enough to get a book on manners.
