Peggy Post, the third generation of Post etiquette experts, and brother-in-law Peter Post have run a marketing-PR firm for 15 years. Here, they offer tips on interviewing and office courtesy; good telephone, e-mail, and correspondence manners; trade-show conduct; running a productive meeting; business entertaining; and doing business in a variety of countries. The authors also discuss a manager's obligations and responsibilities and address business clothing for men and women in separate chapters. The chapters are organized so that users can quickly turn to their areas of interest. Because of its thoroughness, this title would be very useful as a reference source.
