Format: Paperback
The information in this book is indispensable for anyone communicating or doing business with government officials in the U.S. and abroad. However, I must say that it needs some serious editorial attention.

As this is a reference book, I find it incomprehensible that there is no index for the section on titles and forms of address. For example, if I am preparing a letter to a foreign cabinet minister, I should be able to easily find the page number rather than flip through almost 200 pages of listings.

I recommend this book because there apparently are no alternatives on the market. However, if the publisher is reading this, PLEASE consider a more comprehensive table of contents for the next edition.

This is a wonderful resource if you are in the position of having international VIP guests or if you have occasion to travel internationally and associate with high level dignataries. It provides a lot of detailed information that is often overlooked.

I was SO glad to have all this information in one place when I needed it. Working with the Attorney General, Foreign Diplomats, and the like, making sure things were done properly was a cinch!

A "must have" book for people working with international organizations and high level military people. An excellent guide for everything from addressing VIPs to preparing invitations.

Great book and I've had it for years. I actually gave mine away as a gift so I needed another one for myself. However, it took over 5 weeks to get here because the seller sent it by media postage. I will never buy anything from a private seller from Amazon again. Not a good experience.
