Debrett's Manners for Men: What Women Really Want, E. Jane Dickson
2 Debrett's Manners for Men: What Women Really Want
E. Jane Dickson UK ACC Art Books 2008 1851495746 / 9781851495740 Hardcover New Book 
This stylish guide will equip today's men with essential knowledge to ensure relationship success with members of the opposite sex. Modern chivalry is manners with a sexy edge - it just makes things easier if you know what women really want. The new code of male manners allows men and women to enjoy their differences without falling into old, patronising patterns. It requires men to think things through, sifting the meaningful gesture from empty convention. Not all this comes naturally to all men, but good manners can be learned. Using the inside knowledge that only women can provide, Debrett's Manners for Men sets out the new rules for male behaviour, providing an indispensable introduction to the dangerous world of dating, romance and commitment. From first dates and meeting her mother to moving in together, Manners for Men will ensure that the modern man can confront every social challenge with style and panache. AUTHOR E Jane Dickson is a freelance writer who has worked in broadsheet journalism for twenty years. ILLUSTRATIONS 134 colour

Enter Audrey Hepburn's private world in this unique biography compiled by her son that combines recollections, anecdotes, excerpts from her personal correspondence, drawings, and recipes for her favorite dishes written in her own hand, and more than 250 previously unpublished personal family photographs. Audrey at Home offers fans an unprecedented look at the legendary star, bringing together the varied aspects of her life through the food she loved-from her childhood in Holland during World War II, to her time in Hollywood as an actress and in Rome as a wife and mother, to her final years as a philanthropist traveling the world for UNICEF. Here are fifty recipes that reflect Audrey's life, set in the context of a specific time, including Chocolate Cake with Whipped Cream-a celebration of liberation in Holland at the end of the war; Penne alla Vodka-a favorite home-away-from-home dish in Hollywood; Turkish-style Sea Bass-her romance with and subsequent marriage to Andrea Dotti; Boeuf a la Cuillere-Givenchy's favorite dish, which she'd prepare when he'd visit her in Switzerland; and Mousse au Chocolat-dinner at the White House. Audrey also loved the basics: Spaghetti al Pomodoro was an all-time favorite, particularly when returning home from her travels, as was a dish of good vanilla ice cream. Each recipe is accompanied by step-by-step instructions, including variations and preparation tips, anecdotes about Audrey and her life, and a poignant collection of photographs and memorabilia. Audrey at Home is a personal scrapbook of Audrey's world and the things she loved best-her children, her friends, her pets. It is a life that unfolds through food, photographs, and intimate vignettes in a sophisticated and lovely book that is a must for Audrey Hepburn fans and food lovers.
