Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Have you ever wondered what to say to an unmarried woman who has just announced that she is pregnant? Or what equipment you need for a successful buffet? Or how to deal with other people's underhandedness in the office? Answers to these and many other workplace dilemmas can be found in this book by Stewart, the author of 15 books on etiquette, and Faux, who writes on woman's issues. The authors provide a comprehensive catalog of appropriate methods of dealing with workplace issues. Also included is a section on cross-cultural questions. Although the book is directed toward executives, most white-collar workers could benefit from the ideas presented here; most of us are not always sure which fork to use. Recommended for public libraries.-- Joshua Cohen, Mid-Hudson Lib. System, Poughkeepsie, N . Y .
From Barnes & Noble
More than a collection of dos and don'ts, this practical guide offers businesspeople at every level the knowledge they need for handling the complexities of '90s office life with confidence and style, from etiquette in the "global economy" to tricky office politics.
