Don't Take the Last DonutNew Rules of Business Etiquetteby Judith BowmanThis 224 page guide to acting appropriately in business situations just totally captured my heart and blew my mind all at the same time. The wit and insight the author brings to this faithful teacher went a long way to help me see subtle yet major ways that could really impact work situations. The humor and lighthearted style of the easy read was priceless.I was especially drawn to the personal examples, suggestions and even tests throughout that got me to understand how one approach could work over another. Who would have thought that something as simple as picking the client's favorite restaurant could actually make or break a deal. Being self-employed I was able to quickly see how crossing the I's and dotting the T's could make a world of difference. I would recommend this magnificent manuscript to anyone wanting that little edge at the office. Thanks Judith, it just makes so much sense.Love & Light,Riki Frahmann

Follow these rules if you want to be that smarmy guy in the office who always has to sit next to the boss and makes up for his lack of talent with silly little tricks to make himself seem more "businesslike".

This book is a delight to read. Each section provides proven, useful tips with real-life examples of marvellous matchmaking compared to friendship failures. You can read the chapters in sequence or separately. I read it with my lunch and immediately apply the lessons learned when I go back to my desk or walk down the hallway and pass a colleague. I drove to Rhode Island to hear Judith Bowman speak, and I can asure you that she practices what she preaches. Outstanding!
