The 25th Anniversary edition of this book continues to be a classic. Susan RoAne describes straight forward but often underutilized social graces that can be used to increase business and networking opportunities. How to Work a Room provides necessary tools that can be used in all social settings to meet the demands of having conversations in uncomfortable situations. The book gives helpful hints to get through the initial stages of the process. The chapters are laid out in an instructional and informational style with excellent examples and stories to support the thesis. This belongs on everyone's top 10 books to read this year. A must read.
