Customer Reviews
A guide to personal and professional empowerment through civility and social skills, written by two White House Social Secretaries who offer an important fundamental message—everyone is important and everyone deserves to be treated well.<BR><BR>Former White House social secretaries Lea Berman, who worked for George and Laura Bush, and Jeremy Bernard, who worked for Michelle and Barack Obama, have written an entertaining and uniquely practical guide to personal and professional success in modern life. Their daily experiences at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue taught them valuable lessons about how to work productively with people from different walks of life and points of view. These Washington insiders share what they’ve learned through first person examples of their own glamorous (and sometimes harrowing) moments with celebrities, foreign leaders and that most unpredictable of animals—the American politician.<BR> <BR>This book is for you if you feel unsure of yourself in social settings, if you’d like to get along more easily with others, or if you want to break through to a new level of cooperation with your boss and coworkers. They give specific advice for how to exude confidence even when you don’t feel it, ways to establish your reputation as an individual whom people like, trust, and want to help, and lay out the specific social skills still essential to success - despite our increasingly digitized world. Jeremy and Lea prove that social skills are learned behavior that anyone can acquire, and tell the stories of their own unlikely paths to becoming the social arbiters of the White House, while providing tantalizing insights into the character of the first ladies and presidents they served.<BR> <BR>This is not a book about old school etiquette; they explain the things we all want to know, like how to walk into a roomful of strangers and make friends, what to do about a difficult colleague who makes you dread coming to work each day, and how to navigate the sometimes-treacherous waters of social media in a special chapter on “Virtual Manners.” For lovers of White House history, this is a treasure of never-before-published anecdotes from the authors and their fellow former social secretaries as they describe pearl-clutching moments with presidents and first ladies dating back to the Johnson administration.<BR> <BR>The authors make a case for the importance of a return to treating people well in American political life, maintaining that democracy cannot be sustained without public civility.<BR> <BR><i>Foreword by Laura Bush</i>

Far more than a guide to homemaking and being a fine host—although it is definitely all that too—<i>The Inviting Life</i> is about how to live each day with a desire and determination to turn the ordinary into something lovely. It’s also a book about why we should bother. Whether the subject is décor, ambience, shopping, feeding weary travellers, mixing cocktails, planning dinner parties, or getting yourself motivated for spring cleaning, Laura Calder affirms the value of our everyday activities and shows how beauty, creativity, and delight have the power to change the world. This one-of-a-kind book is both a page-turning narrative about Laura’s own hosting and home-making adventures and an invaluable work of reference. It’s a spur to ideas for everything from creating a welcoming living space and making a respectable salad, to putting guests at their ease and writing a thank-you note worth receiving. Written with candour and humour in Laura’s inimitable and engaging voice, <i>The Inviting Life</i> offers empowering guidance for anyone looking to take more pleasure in their life and home.

These women are irresistible not because of their looks, but because they possess one feminine quality that make men crave their attention. <br /><br />High-quality men, the ones that desire true commitment from a woman, desperately yearn for the company of a woman who understands <i>how</i> to keep him captivated by her.<br /><br />So what is the secret to getting a man to crave your attention?

<b>Farewell to faux pas!</b> <br /><br />Minding your manners is an acquired skill, but what serves you well elsewhere could trip you up in Japan. Save yourself possible embarrassment with <i>Etiquette Guide to Japan</i>. An inside look at Japanese social graces, it answers all the questions of the thoughtful traveler. Extensive, specific information on Japanese business etiquette assists readers traveling to Japan for business.<br /><br />Although often overshadowed by a modern facade, long–standing traditional aspects of Japan's culture still influence the country and almost everyone in it. Concrete evidence of this traditional culture can be seen everywhere—in the ancient arts and crafts that are still important parts of everyday life, in the many shrines and temples that dot the nation, and in the modern comeback of traditional fashions such as kimono and yakata robes. <br /><br />To many Western visitors, however, the most obvious example of this traditional culture's strength is the unique etiquette of the Japanese. Like many nations, Japan has experienced vast political, social, and economic change over the past century. But enough of Japan's traditional etiquette remains to set the Japanese apart socially and psychologically and to make success in socializing and doing business with them a special challenge for Westerners. <br /><br /><b>About this new version:</b><br />This updated and expanded edition of the best-selling Japanese etiquette guide addresses not just the puzzling protocols relating to name cards, bowing or shaking hands, bathrooms and public baths—but also what to do when entertaining Japanese dinner guests, attending a Japanese tea ceremony, taking the subway, and much more! It also provides the latest etiquette in mobile phone manners, texting, social media and other forms of digital communication. <br /><br />The glossary at the back of the book has been revised to include the latest technology-related words and expressions used by Japanese today. Two new chapters address the changing role of foreigners in the workplace and the contemporary business style and etiquette used by the younger generation of Japanese who are now increasingly cosmopolitan—but still very Japanese!

<h2>Discover What Quality Men <i>Desperately</i> Need From the Woman They Love and Desire</h2><br />Let's face it; your Dad probably couldn't tell you exactly how to be a good wife or a good girlfriend to keep a really great guy helplessly in love with you. Maybe the topic of how to please your husband in bed would have been too awkward a conversation, or perhaps talking about the emotional needs of a man was beyond his comfort level to share.

The purpose of this book however, is to help women to understand not just any man, but high-quality, mature, masculine men. These are the men that prefer to be with high-quality, mature, feminine women. And these are the men that prefer a passionate, fun, committed relationship with a phenomenal woman instead of a one-night-stand.<br /><br /><h2>Become the Woman Men Adore and <i>Never</i> Want to Leave</h2><br />If you're interested in learning how to be a good wife or girlfriend to a high-quality man, this book will help you to understand what men really want from women.
