Authors of Best-selling 'Manners' Books Bringing Etiquette, Social Skills to Social Media

Share Article

John Bridges and Bryan Curtis, authors of the best-selling Gentlemanners series of books on etiquette and manners, have come to realize that the blogosphere - conveniently and aptly coined a "social" medium - was a party they needed to crash ... that "social" media needed "social skills." Hence their high-flying new blog.

Why shouldn't the world know how to behave itself, 24 hours a day?

John Bridges and Bryan Curtis, authors of the best-selling Gentlemanners series of books on etiquette and manners, have written for years on how to survive and thrive, socially. To best bestow their chivalrous ideals on society these days, however, they've come to realize that the blogosphere - conveniently and aptly coined a "social" medium - was a party they needed to crash. Hence their new blog, http://www.gentlemanners.wordpress.com.

"Why shouldn't the world know how to behave itself, 24 hours a day?" asks Bridges. "It's rather like being an 'Etiquette EMT.' When new etiquette crises arrive, we can be there, on the spot, with all the right answers... but without the sirens and fire hoses."

Within the blog, Bridges and Curtis will address situations they encounter daily, questions received from readers, pop culture, news of the day and everything else from smartphone usage, e-mail and text messaging, to untucked shirts, low-hanging pants and baseball caps. Timeless topics such as how to properly receive a compliment, make introductions, send invitations and set a dinner table, will of course also remain a topic of conversation.

The blog will also bestow awards such as "Gent of the Week" - which has recently been awarded to Senator John McCain and the animated lead character "Foxy" in new blockbuster film, "The Fantastic Mr. Fox."
