Author Maryann B. Sawka says her new book about manners not only teach the rules for good behavior in a social setting, but also helps readers gain confidence and poise.

Houston, TX (USA), Wednesday - November 30th, 2011 --  Author Maryann B. Sawka says her new book about manners not only teach the rules for good behavior in a social setting, but also helps readers gain confidence and poise.

"Good Table Manners Made Easy teaches people of any age how to feel comfortable in a variety of social dining situations," Sawka says.

An educator and mother of two girls, the author said she sees in our society a general "disregard for basic social kindness." She embraces the notion that good manners are stylish and timely in every situation and founded Charming Manners, a training company that educates all ages seeking self confidence."If you have confidence, you can handle many things."

She developed Good Table Manners Made Easy because she wanted to offer a simple guide her students could refer to after completing class. The new book, published through Halo Publishing International, offers quick tips for all ages. It not only teaches the proper rules for civility, but offers an explanation as to why it is important for us to follow them.

"Maryann’s new book introduces good manners with a fun, engaging approach that makes the quest for knowledge an enjoyable experience," said Halo International Publisher Lisa Umina ( http://www.halopublishing.com ).

"This easy-to-read book filled with helpful tips is an excellent resource for both children and adults who will benefit from the lessons for the rest of their lives," Umina said.

Sawka, a native of Brownsville, Pa., a small town south of Pittsburgh, earned a bachelor’s degree in early childhood and elementary education from the California University of Pennsylvania, and a master’s degree in reading and literacy from Walden University. She and her husband, Eli, will soon celebrate their 10th anniversary and have two children, Megan, 8, and Sarah, 4.

Sawka is promoting her new book through schools, libraries and other public venues and hopes to get Good Table Manners Made Easy into the hands of as many readers as possible.

"I think having good manners helps to build strong character, something we desperately need to see more in our society," says the author.
