Lots of us try to treat each other with respect, but it’s not always clear how best to do that. And the rules of etiquette can also evolve.

Lizzie Post is here to help. She is co-president of the Emily Post Institute and co-author of the recently released “Emily Post’s Etiquette Centennial Edition.” She’s also the great-great granddaughter of Emily Post.

The Show spoke with her and asked how much of this edition of the book is an update to what Emily Post started — and how much of it is totally new.
