Business Etiquette

Last month we spoke about email etiquette.
While on that theme, I came across a wonderful book by Barbara Pachter: "The Essentials of Business Etiquette-How to Greet, Eat, and Tweet Your Way to Success." This is a must read for anyone interested in establishing rapport, maintaining a professional image, learning about eating etiquette, picking up social media tips, and collecting guidelines related to your career.101 tips are presented in short units. 
I even read this book on my vacation and was sharing tidbits with my family!
