The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

How To Behave and Why - Munro Leaf - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book How to Behave and Why:

Etiquette basics for everyone, from the maker of Ferdinand the Bull.

My favorite Munro Leaf quote from the book:

"Of course, you can argue with people who know better than you, but it's stupid."

Questions I pondered while reading How to Behave and Why:

How important is etiquette?

How much does personal behavior affect a community?

My thoughts about How to Behave and Why:

My most favorite etiquette book ever.

The basics for all types of kids.

A must-have for all households.
