Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
From the foremost etiquette authority comes this updated guide to business manners designed with today's fast-paced environment in mind. The emphasis is on good taste and decorum, and if behavior in movie theaters is any indication, our culture sorely needs this sound advice. Narrator Post, great granddaughter-in-law of Emily Post, explains the fundamentals of personal appearance, job interviews, public speaking, radio and TV appearances, teleconferencing, lunch/dinner business meetings, entertaining, E-mail, and numerous other situations relevant to professional behavior. In today's cubicle environment, even Dilbert would find many of these tips helpful. This nicely supplements Judith Martin's Miss Manners' Basic Training: Communication (Crown, 1997) and is an excellent resource for all public libraries.Dale Farris, Groves, Tex.
