Editorial Reviews

This is not a stuffy finishing school etiquette book. Written by Vicky Oliver and performed by Amy Rubinate, 301 Smart Answers to Tough Business Etiquette Questions contains smart and funny answers to all the questions you may face while navigating the delicate corporate world. Amy Rubinate's voice acting adds extra flavor to an already charismatic text. This manual is built for the modern workforce and the new technology of the 21st century. Oliver is not afraid to explore situations traditional books might not cover ranging from text messages to tricky gender dynamics.

Publisher's Summary

As times change, so do norms of behavior in the office. 301 Smart Answers to Tough Business Etiquette Questions has the answers you need to survive daily life in the professional environment. Following the same popular Q&A format of her best-selling 301 Smart Answers to Tough Interview Questions, Oliver will tell you how to get the job and how to keep it by navigating all the intricacies of the modern workplace.

Where other etiquette guides evoke images of a stilted and stuffy Victorian tea party, Oliver's witty answers to common questions are both engaging and accessible. She believes that etiquette is not a throwback to some bygone age, but has a direct and tangible impact on your career right here and now. Off come the white gloves as she tears away the corporate veil to reveal things they still don't teach at Harvard Business School, such as:

  • Making a good first impression (and how to fix a bad one!)
  • How to behave in elevators, airplanes, and supply closets
  • Surviving cabs, commutes, and coffee shops
  • Why time is not necessarily money everywhere on the planet
  • Pre-approved conversational topics from A to Z
  • Dining rules and regulations for the 21st century
  • What to do when you are suddenly unemployed
  • Electronic communication
  • And much more!

301 Smart Answers to Tough Business Etiquette Questions will ensure that you know how to conduct yourself in every conceivable professional interaction.

Narration by a robot

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The narration sounds like a computer, or as if I were waiting on hold on a bank line. Come on guys! I can't listen to this!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator his horrible. She sounds like a computer program. I can't listen to this. I want to stick my pen in my eye.
