"No matter where you are or who you are, there are four main things that you have to do if you want to make good friends and keep them.
You have to be HONEST
You have to be FAIR
You have to be STRONG
and you have to be WISE
And there is no good in trying to fool yourself. All that isn't so easy."

Reviewed by Publishers Weekly Reviews (PW Reviews 2002 April #5)
How to Behave and Why (1946) by Ferdinand author Munro Leaf offers etiquette lessons from a simpler time that still apply today. He offers examples of the main points (You have to be honest You have to be fair You have to be strong and you have to be wise) throughout. The b&w (and red) illustrations have a nostalgic quality but do not feel dated. (June) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
