In Rules for Modern Life, Sir David Tang offers a satirical masterclass in navigating the social niceties of modern life.

About the Author

Sir David Tang is a businessman and entrepreneur, best known as the founder of China Tang and iCorrect, as well as the luxury clothing brand Shanghai Tang. He is also the resident 'agony uncle' at the Financial Times, answering readers' questions about property, interiors, architecture and gardens - although he often strays beyond his remit to debate concerns about everything from etiquette to grammar. He has homes principally in Hong Kong, mainland China, London and Essex.
