I just finished the book. I would say that about 70% of the questions are about having common sense and good taste. The rest of the questions taught me several useful things. I would recommend just checking out the book from the local library, I wouldn't say it is a "must-have".

Vicky Oliver's smart, career-saving advice guides you through all those workplace challenges that Emily Post somehow missed: virtual meetings and e-firings, business avatars and invisible doors, LinkedIn and Twitter, texting and blogging, email follow-ups after the interview, decoding the hidden hierarchy, staying on the radar, unspoken gender rules no employer will ever tell you, and much more. Ignore this timely book at your peril!

Vicky Oliver has done it again! I love her savvy advice and the easy-to-read-and-refer-to format. As an industry consultant and a parent of a newly-minted college grad, I find 301 Smart Answers to Tough Business Etiquette Questions incredibly relevant and a perfect guide to the wilds of the business world. This book belongs on every executive's bookshelf and on the bookshelf of anyone who wants to become an executive.

My b-school professor recommended Vicky Oliver's book on business etiquette, and it was invaluable for my first foray into the "real world". The very first month I was there, I bumped into two of her challenging scenarios -- not being heard at meetings, and being bullied by a co-worker. I followed her advice to a "T" and instantly gained new standing with my manager and team. This book delves into real situations that can get you into trouble quickly -- like email gaffes and careless water cooler conversation. I'm thankful I read it before I was hired.

A great read on etiquette in a wide range of business situations! Of particular interest to me, is advice on navigating cultural differences during international travel. The book covers digital-age topics such as mobile communication and social networking. Ms. Oliver delivers unspoken rules one is never taught in school - but is expected to know in the business world.

Vicky, in her light-hearted and witty manner, will entertain you as she presents you with business etiquette issues, including potential problems and their solutions. You will be amused as you learn how to navigate the challenges of dining out with colleagues and potential clients/employers and which topics to discuss (and not discuss) while doing so. (Section III)

In this age of the internet, why not gain the advantage of making the best in-person presentation, regardless of the situation? (Note: she gives you internet etiquette advice too.) You might meet your signficant other or the person to change your career the next time you are out.

Many of the insights gained on how to behave in certain situations are not only applicable to the business environment, but will also be useful in your personal life. Don't guess as to how you should conduct yourself; life is not a dress rehearsal. BUT don't worry. If you mess up -- and invariably we all do -- Vicky will help you clean up your gaffes.

Why not improve your life and be amused at the same time?

Following the same breezy-to-read format as her first bestseller, 301 Smart Answers to Tough Business Etiquette Questions will help you get the job, keep the job, be next in line for that elusive promotion or pay bump. This is a fabulous, fun read, but it's also genuinely practical and down-to-earth. While other etiquette guides are as crusty as a Miss Manners' guide, Vicky Oliver's witty but wise answers to 301 everyday problems are truly engaging. I learned the top email snafus to avoid, several important dining rules that I never knew, tons of information about communicating via the new media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), and how to present myself while traveling abroad. Buy it for a young professional just starting out or for anyone whose business success you truly care about. You won't be sorry!
