Tiffany's Table Manners for Teenagers (50th anniversary) by Walter Hoving by –NOT RECOMMENDED.

Hoving, Walter Tiffany's Table Manners for Teenagers (50th anniversary), 96 pgs. Random House Books for Young Readers, 2011. $11.98. NON-FICTION.
A lovely reprint of Hovings original table manners for teenagers, which includes where to put your elbows, how to deal with utensils, and where to put your napkin.
I am of the opinion that most Teenagers wouldn’t touch this book. It is outdated and offers little advice to the modern teen of today. An update of this book might be a fun item –dealing with cell phones at the table, how to eat pizza with some class, etc. Even at that, I still don’t think teens will find this type of rule making and advice appealing.
