Format: Paperback
I Love, Love, Love, GREET! EAT! TWEET!

If you are intent on advancing your career, Greet! Eat! Tweet!: 52 Business Etiquette Postings To Avoid Pitfalls and Boost Your Career is the ticket. Author Barbara Pachter is an experienced and persuasive communicator whose words of wisdom are powerful and packed with common sense punch. This little gem is succinct, to the point, with no wasted words. Easy to read super short meaty chapters take less than one minute each to read allowing the reader to absorb and reflect on thought provoking content.

My favorite is chapter is "Button That Shirt and Cover That Thigh". When I read that chapter I found myself cheering the author's courage to speak up about appropriate business attire. If you are tired of viewing tasteless "anchor cleavage" or bare "cottage cheese thighs" on female TV personalities or guests, you will cheer as well. Just because something is "in style" doesn't mean it's suitable for everyone for every occasion.

The chapters dealing with the "do's, don'ts and pitfalls" of social networking sites are indispensable whether you are a seasoned pro or just getting your feet wet. I learned things that made me think, "Wow! I'm glad to know that before I do any more social networking!"

Greet! Eat! Tweet!: 52 Business Etiquette Postings To Avoid Pitfalls and Boost Your Career should be required reading in every employee training program to insure workplace harmony and success. And because business and achievement-oriented behaviors generally are not included in most curricula, I'd like to see a copy handed out at every high school and college graduation along with the diploma. It's that valuable.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Steven Byrd on December 27, 2010
Format: Paperback
Greet! Eat! Tweet! begins with the 92% rule. You don't have to be perfect and in most classes, a 92 is an "A." Why should anyone give 92% and not 100%? Because we are all human and mistakes will inevitably happen. Barbara's book educates the reader on what is considered a mistake and how to prevent it.

Barbara covers a wide spectrum of circumstances that most if not of all us will encounter in life. As the workplace evolves, so has the author's advice for coping with these changes. The most prominent feature of this is social media, I.E. Facebook and LinkedIn. She includes advice on the dangers of posting indiscriminately on the Internet and covers how to use social networks to your professional advantages.

A vast majority of her content is not taught in school. As a college student myself at the time of writing this review, I highly recommend it especially for juniors and seniors.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By N. Garron on December 22, 2010
Format: Paperback
Greet! Eat! Tweet! opens on a great premise called the 92 percent rule. This concept means that rather than put unnecessary pressure on yourself to be perfect, strive to do your best, but realize that as a professional, mishaps will occur and you can handle them.

Barbara Pachter offers a ton of helpful information through 52 of her business etiquette postings aimed to help people avoid pitfalls and boost their careers. The issues covered range from dining etiquette and proper clothing attire to how to disagree agreeably, job-search mistakes to avoid and tips on how to find your next job.

Sometimes the vital basics are all too easy to forget from day-to-day. Convey confidence: whether you feel it or not, don't put yourself down: accept compliments, manners count: use please and thank you and be direct: You're more likely to get what you want are a few topics covered in this book.

I found this book to be friendly in its approach and comfortable to read. It is broken into small manageable sections and offers practical realistic material to help navigate through the workplace.
