Journal Entry 1 by TracyW on Saturday, January 9, 2010
As a non-American, this was a very interesting read. I like Miss Manners, who is a very witty writer. This book wasn't so witty, but as a piece of non-fiction it has its high points. I do wish Miss Manners had a wider knowledge of Canadian, Australian and NZ manners, as these countries were also settled by people who had decided to immigrate, but never went through a revolution like the American one. There is a lot of similarilty in at least NZ and Australian manners to how she describes American ones, though there were no formal manner-makers, that I know of, amongst the poltical elite who were comparable to Benjamin Franklin or George Washington.
