As a small business owner I find myself in a variety of social situations and was thrilled to find a book that addresses may of the questions that I frequently had. The book is a quick read and is written in such a way that it entertains you as it educates you. What do you do when you drop a fork at a restaurant? What do you do when someone eats your dinner roll? Do you stand to greet people in all situations? These things happen all the time and it's nice to know what to do! Thanks Jacqueline for letting me know!

This book is fairly short (~150 pages) which makes it a quick way to brush up on etiquette. I found myself taking notes on some of the tips offered by the author which I'm sure I'll find useful. The book seems geared towards salespeople and small business owners, although others will find the information helpful as well.

I'm very glad I purchased this book new versus used or renting because it is a great addition to my collection and I'm sure I will reference back to it in the future. I have also recommended it to several friends, coworkers and family members. It's a quick, easy read but had very good information that would be helpful to any one.
