    Despite of being written for businesswomen mainly, anyone can get practical ideas on etiquette, netiquette and good manners. I read this handbook to learn about Business English, namely, how to answer the phone appropriately, what not to do in a presentation and so on. My basic interests were two: etiquette and English language. I must confess some pretty good pieces of advice. One of the nicest ones is related to dress code. The author shares a secret acronym with the reader: FACS where F stand Despite of being written for businesswomen mainly, anyone can get practical ideas on etiquette, netiquette and good manners.

Easy to read, big font size, plenty of anecdotes all through the 101 chapters written by Barbara Pachter.

    This would be helpful for a college intern or recent college graduate, or maybe someone transitioning from the military to the civilian workforce; but as a mid-career individual I found it too basic. If you've been in the corporate workforce any length of time, chances are you've probably already overcome the learning curve of concerns that are detailed in this book.

    This is a great book that has some relevant ideas for working with staff or, as I do, helping youth with some key ideas for the career world. While a lot might seem obvious, there are some definite gems including writing without putting yourself down instead asking the question, being direct, avoiding self-discounting words, etc. Quick and easy read! I just read a few sections ever so often.

    Read for Class I would recommend this for anyone wanting to improve their business etiquette. There are so many tips, even for someone who has worked in the business world all their life.

    With my job, in addition to conducting seminars, I'm in a lot of client and prospective client meetings, work functions, lunches, etc. I enjoyed this book because it was a good reminder of what to do and what not to do in business settings but also in life in general. For example, I knew that when I'm finished a meal to put my silverware on my plate to signal to the server that I'm finished ... but I didn't know that my knife should be up and down on my plate and my fork should lay across under With my job, in addition to conducting seminars, I'm in a lot of client and prospective client meetings, work functions, lunches, etc. I enjoyed this book because it was a good reminder of what to do and what not to do in business settings but also in life in general. For example, I knew that when I'm finished a meal to put my silverware on my plate to signal to the server that I'm finished ... but I didn't know that my knife should be up and down on my plate and my fork should lay across under it (otherwise he/she might think I'm just taking a break). There are 101 tips included in four sections: Greet Part 1 - Establishing rapport Part 2 - Maintaining a professional image Eat Tweet Career Here are some examples of the tips: What's in Your Name?

Having been in the workforce and business world for almost twenty years I thought I was pretty up to date on all of the proper business etiquette, but it was nice to brush up on my skills and learn some of the new etiquette surrounding social media and technology in the workforce. The author did a great job of including pop culture references and real life scenarios to demonstrate what is and is not appropriate in the work place. It really added life to what could be considered to be a dull topic. Those scenarios really helped the book flow along nicely and enjoyable to read. Bottom line, I know that many of us view etiquette, even business etiquette, as "common sense" to many others it is not inherently known and a book like this is definitely needed. The Essentials of Business Etiquette is a must read for every college graduate about to enter the workforce or even someone who is switching professions mid-career. Implementing the rules of proper etiquette in the business world is sure to make one stand out to a potential employer. Definitely worth the read.

    This was a surprisingly good read. Aside from her jarring use of the term business world (really?) Pachter manages to distil basic business etiquette into 4 easy steps: 1) GREET 2) EAT 3) TWEET 4) CAREER The tips themselves are short and snappy. A useful book if you are transitioning to a more senior role and want to brush up on your client-facing skills or have a new hire who needs coaching. I'll definitely get one for the office.

    Well I sure did read this one (at the behest of a manager). There are actually a few things that are super valuable (as someone who came from a social service background to a corporate environment), although a lot of the advice seems somewhat antiquated or maybe just not relevant to the environment where I work. So much of this is pretty common sense, but some is stuff that I might not have thought of on my own.

    -1 for aggregation of blog content. Might be good to give to the young person in your life, but nothing I didn't know.

That one's a keeper!) -1 for aggregation of blog content. Might be good to give to the young person in your life, but nothing I didn't know.

    At this age of social media where formality and etiquette is not often heard, this book is perfect. It's an easy reference that gives practical tips to those questions we think but we don't ask. Like how do we decline friend requests? Or what should we order when we're invited to dinner? It's a must read corporate survival guide for all.

    Helpful for college-age students who are just entering the workforce. I'd recommend it to friends who haven't had much office experience. Helpful for college-age students who are just entering the workforce. I'd recommend it to friends who haven't had much office experience.
