Product Description

From Library Journal

This book tells executives (and others) how to behave in business situations. Baldrige discusses traditional points of etiquette (e.g., making introductions and using proper forms of address), but also gives guidelines for other types of behavior, such as dressing appropriately and planning a meeting. The result is a comprehensive handbook on business manners which combines protocol with common sense. Baldrige, who revised The Amy Vanderbilt Complete Book of Etiquette and who served as Jacqueline Kennedy's chief of staff, writes in clear and entertaining fashion. This useful book deserves a place in most business and etiquette collections. Wendy Allex, Central Arkansas Lib. System, Little Rock

Format: Hardcover
My work centers on meeting and greeting people and getting people comfortable in interacting. This book is critical for those base social skills. I use the tips, strategies and ideas for helping emerging young adults network better.
For people that think it's only for diplomats, or that it's anti woman... I couldn't disagree more. The book shows your the formality in doing proper introductions--- people can choose to customize the intro to the situation!!! It gives you a high water mark to shoot at and no one ever complains about how formal I am in presenting one person to another.
I have recommended this book on multiple occasions. People that I admire most in social circumstances execute the fundamentals taught in this book.

Ms. Baldridge provides invaluable assistance on a wide range of issues in the modern office. Concise, practical hints that help the reader avoid making those mistakes that can derail the most promising career. From office romances to writing condolence letters; from accepted social practices in other countries to dealing with discrimination in the workplace, this book covers it all. This truly is the stuff they never taught you in business school...but should have! A reference book for every office library

Format: Hardcover
This book was a disappointment in that it appears to be primarily aimed at high-level diplomats and/or very, very high level corporate people at the biggest corporations. It seemed pompous and snobbish and out of touch with real life situations outside of the diplomatic corp. I would not recommend it for the average Joe Business man who just wants to know the proper real-life etiquette in a majority of corporate environments today.

This is an excellent book, useful for anyone performing any activity in which they interact with others. Useful for businessmen, diplomats, lawyers, doctors... the works. The office etiquete it presents is useful for all levels: from high management to entry level.
