I have written several times asking where the book is--I have paid for it but never received it. Won't someone please respond?

George Washington's Rules of Civility & Decent Behaviour is a great addition to anyone's library. Although he borrowed much of this information from an earlier French work, they are still poignant and speak to the upbringing of the future president as he compiled this list at the age of 14.

Applewood Books version of the rules (and there are many even just looking on Amazon) is pocket-sized (4 1/4 x 6 3/4") and beautifully hardbound. My family is using this book as a supplement to our Homeschool curriculum as it includes many great nuggets that buck against the trend of the "anything goes" present day mannerisms.

In the Spirit of our Founding Fathers, I bring you the 110 rules that guided the life of George Washington, our nation's first president. In a day when being crude, crass and offensive is in vogue, these rules speak to a different impulse. They remind us that beyond our desire for the immediate gratification of every whim there are other people with their own sensibilities and notions of dignity. they remind us of the early days of this country when being civil to friend and foe alike was not only good manners but a sign of one's worth. Each of the rules is illustrated by a cartoon and accompanied by a modern observation.

Good for gifts or gags. Suitable for friends or foes.
