This is the most sexist unnecessary book I have ever read. Unfortunately I recieved it as a gift. It was obviously self edited due to typos and nonsensical sentances. Several of the "tips" would make you come off as an entitled jerk that no one wants to be around. It is clear that the author has not worked in an office since the 80s or 90s. The dress section itself is horrible. In my particular industry (computer science), heels are not recommended for most things since campuses are large and its irritating to wait for the person who decided to be slowed by heels. Even at interviews you are typically given tours of the complex, which requires comfortable shoes. Heels are not required and not even reccommended. Many of the "tips" mirror sexist pamplets given out in the 60s, such as the dating advice. Most of the tips were unnecessary, either tedious or common sense. It is also discriminates against people who are not Christian. For instance it says not going to the holiday party is a career killer, however it is against some peoples beliefs to celebrate the holiday season. It recommends you talk primarily about current events, however many current events are controversal and not appropriate for family or office gatherings. Also no one is going to notice if you do or do not follow "BMW," it's an old tired custom. It seems you could chop down a forest with all the thank you notes she says you MUST send. It only got a one because it was the lowest option and gave me a good laugh at the ridiculous customs.

Socially Savvy is a book that is a quick reference for business to social situations: from how to conduct oneself in a business meetings to buying a hostess gift, of if in doubt in how to set a table, to what utensils to use at the dinner table - Socially Savvy is a quick guide to help one to know their manners. Social Savvy even covers how to travel on private jets, to writing thank you notes and knowing the difference between a purse and a handbag! This is a great resource to give to graduates to business associates to family and friends. Vicki Milner - former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader
