    John, Vice President of Human Resources (Technology)

    I was given this book and the woman's book by a friend to include in our company's training library. I took time reading the books and found the information extremely beneficial. It gives many excellent examples and reasons why to present oneself with professionalism. In the human resources field I see many employees who could greatly benefit from this information. The dress part is so necessary in today's work environment.

    A reviewer

    My wife bought this book for me. I am in the middle of a career change and she thought it would be helpful. It actually got me upset thinking she was presenting me with such a simple book. She glanced at some pages and apoligized. Bottom line is professional men do know how to dress, proper manners and job interviews.

    Terrific Advice

    I purchased 3 books and sent to my three brothers. Each of them commented on the sound advice.

    Nothing New

    This book was very disappointing. Next time I will buy from more established authors.

    BORING

    I think i had the wrong impression when i purchased the book. I was thinking it would be more on how to conduct oneself and dress for different opportunities. Really, i did not get any new information.

    Not recommended

    I bought two books for my children 'twin boys' who graduated in May. I scanned through the book to get a general overview and noticed it was very basic information. I was expecting to read more useful information besides the obvious 'be will groomed for a job interview' no kidding! Needless to say the books are sitting in our library, who would I pass them to? I would think that most people we associate with would have already taught their children how to dress and proper etiquette. I guess by now you have figured out my kids only looked through the book and were laughing with me while I promised I thought it was for young adults not children.
