We are drawn to smooth, harmonious movement. Both social and physical graces have been taught since the dawn of civilization. Yet grace seems forgotten in our pushy, hectic modern world. Sarah L. Kaufman argues that we should bring it back. She celebrates grace in the way bodies move; exploring how to stand, walk and dress well. She deplores the rarity of grace among public figures and glories in it where found. She singles out grace in sports and in the arts-from tennis and football to sculpture, music and dance-and in the everyday ways people interact, from the grace of a good host to the kindness of strangers.

Cary Grant is this book's muse. His ease flowed from training as an acrobat but also from his wit, humility and genuine concern for others. So, Kaufman suggests, we might unearth the potential for grace in ourselves.
