I love biographies! And, I love Emily Post! Etiquette is one of the best reference books ever written. I think manners make everyone around you comfortable, and love her down to earth approach to them (and the thoughtful updates to reflect modern day situations). So, imagine my suprise to discover that Mrs. Post was involved in turn of the last century scandals involving a philandering husband and a divorce! I'm only about 30 pages in, but it's great so far. I highly recommend it!
