Format: Hardcover
Review from Library Journal, December 2008
*BOTTOM LINE* *One doesn't need to update this type of reference book often, but this one is made to last and well worth the price. An essential purchase for all libraries*

Full Review:
Hickey*, Robert. *Honor & Respect: The Official Guide to Names, Titles, and Forms of Address*. Protocol School. 2008. 576p. bibliog. index. ISBN 978-0-615-19806-4. $75. REF
A reference source on forms of address is a standard in all types of libraries. The best known is probably A&C Black's /Titles and Forms of Address: A Guide to Correct Use/, which will be in its 22nd edition in 2009. This work is the Protocol School of Washington's first attempt at compiling such a guide, and it is well worth the wait.Hickey, deputy director of the school, has written the most extensive guide to honorifics and titles available *Part 1 *("Terms, Style & Use") provides an extensive glossary of terminology, offices, and agencies, as well as information on the use of various forms of address. *Part 2 *("Forms of Address") supplies entries on how to address private citizens, professionals and academics, military personnel, diplomats, clergy, officials in the United States, and British, Canadian, Australian, and International officials. Each entry includes the address for an official envelope, a letter salutation and closing, an address on a social and inside envelope, the form for a place card, an introduction, and guidance for addressing one in conversation. *Part 3 *("Country Names & Officials") lists the official names of each country and how to address top officials. Other features include a section on precedence and joint forms of address.

Format: Hardcover
Making a mistake in how you address or interact with people in formal settings can be damaging in the worst of ways. If you want to be confident in these sitautions, then Robert Hickey's "Honor & Respect" is a must-have book for your library.

I work closely with dozens of Fortune 500 companies, as well as government agencies - many of whom must interact/communicate with people from all over the world. The moment I secured my own copy of this desperately-needed book, I have recommended it to every person I meet who is involved with weddings, ceremonies, or formal events of any kind. "Honor & Respect" is quite simply, the definitive resource for any situation where being appropriate in how you invite or address people is important.

This is not some small/cheap/superficial paperback overview. This is a 552 page, content-rich, beautifully bound hardback reference that you will use over and over again.

In today's world of ever-changing expectations, you can rest assured that, with the information in this painstakingly-researched book, you can go through any event experience with all the answers you need.

Bottom line: Without the information included in this resource, you are at risk of embarrassing yourself and/or your guests. There's no excuse when you can easily buy this book and have all the answers you'll ever need. Fantastic, much-needed reference. No hesitation...this book gets five WELL-earned stars!

Format: Hardcover
Robert Hickey has researched and written an outstanding global reference for today's business professionals, tomorrow's leaders and any socialite. This reference book is a must if you need to write, mail an invitation, introduce a business colleague or speak to an ambassador, cardinal, chief of state, city mayor, deputy chief of mission, judge or an elected official. Robert Hickey's book is exquisitely organized and his specific formulas to follow for both business and social interactions are clear and easy to follow. When conducting executive training sessions for clients, in the US or abroad, Robert's book is an instant hit with the audience and a perfect gift. I highly recommend this international resource for anyone seeking to improve their communication and relationships.
