The Art of Minglingby Jeanne Martinet
Network, network, network. In today's world, business and socializing have mixed so much that no one can afford to swear off parties anymore. Social gatherings are necessary, whether you'd rather stay home and watch a movie or not. But what if the idea of meeting a lot of strangers makes you weak in the knees? What if you have no confidence, if you're terrified of forgetting people's names, if you're worried about being pinned in a corner by a droning bore, like the last time you went out? The Art of Mingling has the answers. Even you --yes you-- can meet new people with charm and confidence, ease gracefully in and out of conversations, and have a good time doing it. Social success is not as hard as you imagine, if you learn a few simple tricks.

I love the author's witty and humourous approach to the subject of mingling..a great read...but this is not the latest edition. Make sure that you get the updated version that just came out in October of 2006 in paperback....she has updated alot of sections and it is definitely the one to have for the new millenium!
I bought this book thinking it was the newly updated and revised edition, which I just read about and which was just published this fall. So, while I found the book to be helpful and quite funny, a lot of it is horribly out of date. (For example Cigarettes as Props: pros and cons.') I suggest people try the new edition. I'm going to.
What trash! Rather than treating people with honor and respect, as anyone would like to be treated, this book suggests using deception and manipulation to make a game out of talking to people who don't know you. I bought this book hoping to get some simple hints and questions that I could use to approach people in social settings who I don't know. I can't expect that people who have trouble 'mingling' would get any help from reading this book.
