Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Could a better understanding of etiquette have prevented the Enron scandal? Well, lying to shareholders never constituted good manners in anyone's book, nor good business sense, so perhaps. Drawing such lines is what the Posts attempt in the early chapters of this updated version of their business etiquette book, where they equate good ethics with good business. But really, is the slope between saying that the boss is in a meeting (when he's not) and distorting P&L statements actually that slippery? In trying to suggest that it is, the early chapters of this book provide little helpful guidance on actionable business conduct and come dangerously close to mimicking an employee handbook. Once the authors leave behind the discussion of ethics, cubicle etiquette and general office building conduct-please, no singing to your iPod in the elevator-one finds the content one expects from the Posts, like a mini-course in wine selection, pointers on making small talk with anyone, tips for trouble-free business travel and modern-day rules for handshaking. (FYI, it's no longer gender-specific, and women should always extend a hand, even if wearing glamorous evening gloves.) Ultimately, such social tips are more useful than the Posts' advice to tell your boss that lying about his whereabouts makes you uncomfortable. The authors also include substantial content on conducting a well-mannered job search.

Format: Hardcover
The Etiquette Advantage in Business is just the thing for the newly hired recent graduate who wants to be sure he or she is doing the right and considerate thing. It is a great "review" for older employees who want to check whether their skills are current. Excellent material, clearly written. A pleasure to read!

Format: Hardcover
This book is a great reference tool, and sits in my office next to the classic Emily Post. It is helpful for perhaps a new college-grad, or someone entering the business world for the first time, to read it through. For those more seasoned in the business world, this book is a great tool for guidance in tricky situations. While there will certainly be tips that appear obvious to an individual with business experience, The Etiquette Advantage in Business can also be used a reference tool.

Say you are traveling abroad for the first time. This book covers etiquette on various continents and in different countries.

It is absolutely worth a read, whether you are a beginner or a CEO.

Ever have that 1 question on 'how to' conduct yourself in a business situation? This book has the answers and the guidance on 'what to do.' Even the most experienced professional comes across a business situation question ... it's nice to have the answer before the situation occurs!

This book is a must read for anyone graduating from school and headed into business. It gives outstanding advice on everything from cell phone etiquette, e-mail etiquette, cubicle farm etiquette, table manners, the interview process, thank you's, etc. It's a good read, and an outstanding reference book to have in one's library.

This is wonderful book explaining what etiquette is really about. One will learn everything -- from how to dress, table manners, office setup, how to print business cards to how to prepare resume. I would recommend to everyone to read it regardless if they are working or not. While I do not agree with some of the rules regarding "who pays for lunch" - I would say that this is a book everyone should read and understand because it will improve their interactions with others.

As we grow up we are taught many things for proper behavior in public. (Like don't chew with your mouth open, always send a Thank You note, table setting - work from outside of plate inward)
This has reminders on many situations which will allow you to brush up and be a good reflection of your company.
With this edition having been published in 2005 it covers current trends that need to be addressed that are still new to this society. (Situations like . . . telecommuting, customer relations, cell phone usage, electronic communication, even highlights for international business)
I recommend this as a good desk companion to have on hand for those situations where you want to make sure you are making the proper impression.
