This little paperback could save your life – well, your reputation at least!

Charm School is a handbook for the thinking woman who wants to enjoy life, be a good friend, be well liked at work and wants success – all at the same time. Kathy’s offers easy to read, no-nonsense advice with a healthy serving of fun – the book may even have you laughing out loud. (Note to self: Research etiquette of laughing out loud alone). Armed with Kathy’s top tips, you’ll glide effortlessly through the stickiest of situations, her wit and wisdom may even help you avoid blush inducing ‘foot in mouth’ episodes. Reading Charm School might even make you more popular with your peers and more desirable to your mate – well, anything’s worth a try!

Must reads are the chapters including “What to do when you’ve gone so long without a boyfriend people are starting to talk”, and “Do you tell your friend if her boyfriend comes on to you?” as well as helpful hints for the modern women in “Modern manners in high society”.

An essential read for anyone who’s ever known the pain of using the wrong fork in a fancy restaurant. And just in case you were wondering, it’s is bad manners to answer your mobile phone while you are on the toilet.
