The dummy series is helpful on most topics. But a word of warning, when they try to specialize in dating advice (there are quite a few books on this topic) do not take it seriously. Nor should you buy it. Social etiquette is poorly taught in this series. But this particular one I can recommend if you’re really lost on the subject.
