4.0 out of 5 stars Useful April 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Why i didn't choose 5 stars was only because the reality of some establishments don't match with the book. The author works for an awesome establishment and not every place has a hearty operation. Nonetheless, be thankful that this read offers GREAT tips-no pun intended. Real to life stories and examples, and a cool list to follow whether you are just beginning or looking to spice things up from the mundane day to day. I liked the lists of items every waitress or server should have, i loved the short stories, and i loved the place that she's fortunate to work for- because not every establishment gives a you know what. I disliked the place i worked for after reading this book., which means she did a great job! I recommend this read to anyone aspiring to be a server, anyone who is serving to constantly be inspired, snag lastly any boss and customer who doesn't see the joy that a server really has doing his or her job and thinks that they are not worth appreciating.

More About the Author

Romana Van Lissum was born in Karvina, Czechoslovakia in 1968. When the Russians invaded her country, her parents left everything behind and escaped with her when she was only nine months old. After living in Edmonton, Alberta for 18 years, they moved to Maple Ridge, B.C. where they reside to this day.

Romana has been a successful cocktail waitress for over 18 years in a popular Vancouver strip club. It is what she knows well and enjoys. Her book, "How to be a Waitress and Make Big Tips" is the result of the information that she learned over these many years. It's full of tips, tricks and strategies that she uses on a daily basis to gain the title of "favorite waitress" in the eyes of her many regulars. As an extra bonus, to shock her readers, she has added a bonus chapter, "100 of Romana's Unforgettable Customers" to give her readers a behind-the-scenes peek at some of the unusual customers she encounters on a daily basis.

In between slinging brews and burgers, Romana decided to get some answers to the questions we all want to know about exotic dancers. As a fixture in the industry, Van Lissum has the unique position to capture the stories of three generations of strippers both working and retired in a candid, confessional style. Check out her second book, "The Life of a Stripper." Get ready to find out the secrets, mechanics and drive behind the beautiful women that take their clothes off for a living.
