Learn the secrets of the “whys,” “whens,” and “how-tos” of thank-you note writing. The Art of Thank You will motivate you—or perhaps someone you know who could use a little encouragement—to pick up a pen and take the time to express gratitude. Interspersing straightforward guidelines with funny, inspiring anecdotes and examples by such luminaries as Abraham Lincoln and Ernest Hemingway, the author’s practical tips for newlyweds, business people, and children make this handy little book an indispensable resource.
After nearly twenty years as a technical writer, Connie Leas retired and turned her attention to thank-you notes. Years of gathering material from advice columns, etiquette books, and collections of selected letters have made her a no-nonsense thank-you-note expert. She has five children and lives with her husband in Boulder Creek, California.
