In Praise of Manners That Sell

“Manners That Sell is a must-read book for anyone, but especially for those who are employed. Lydia Ramsey discusses a wide breadth of topics in her book. She leaves no subject regarding etiquette and manners untouched.

College students who are about to take their first position in the workplace would have a competitive advantage by reading this book cover to cover.

This book should be regarded as a contemporary classic. Modern in its frank discussion of proper protocol in today’s electronic and fast paced society, yet classic in the traditions that have remained constant in our culture for centuries. Sprinkled with a touch of humor, this book is easy to read. Each chapter segments particular subjects, allowing the reader to find answers to specific questions within minutes.

Keep this book around as a reference. One never knows when the occasion will come when you need to know the proper thing to do.”
