The inimitable Larry King who certainly has no problem gaining access anywhere, has endorsed Tipping for Success as a book that can help the average patron. For the average person, as well as the successful business traveler, tipping can often be an awkward and embarrassing production. Mark Brenner discusses the methods and dialogue for getting those last minute restaurant or hotel reservations or simply how to catch a cab on a crowded street during rush hour. I believe this book is a must for every serious business traveler or person who desires both fast and royal service.
Perhaps the most overlooked working professional when it comes to tipping (other than special holidays) are the receptionists, secretaries, assistants and the like who are really the gatekeepers that schedule so many of our important appointments.

Tipping for Success provides you with that critical edge.
