<DIV>Today’s man may know how to dress with style, but does he know how to behave? Though the rules of civility have changed along with the world, <I>Men and Manners </I>believes in manners. This book doesn’t tell you which fork to use or how to write a thank you note. But it <I>is</I> going to remind you of basic, respectful rules you may have forgotten or have chosen to ignore. Comprised of short essays, shorter interviews, and lists of guidelines for men of all ages, this book provides an honest, playful, and humorous look at the conflicted state of manners today. Subjects that may fluster today’s man†•such as tipping, toasting, texting, grooming, dating, office behavior, and home decor†•are explored with the trademark combination of dry wit and self-deprecating attitude that has made David Coggins one of today’s most well-respected men’s style writers.<BR />  <BR /> With humorous illustrations and contributions from some of today’s male style icons, <I>Men and Manners</I> makes the case for being the man who offers the best seat to his companion, who knows when to pick up the tab, and who remembers to do what’s right even if it isn’t always rewarded.</DIV>

<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>What to Text Him Back to Keep Him <i>Hooked</i> and Make Him BEG to See You Again</h2><br />Did you know that men secretly use texting as a way to "pre-screen" a woman’s romantic value? A woman’s texting habits can reveal a lot about her self-worth, confidence, intelligence, and even her level of class and emotional maturity. <br /><br />Because guys covertly appraise a woman’s relationship potential this way, many women often have no idea that the way they communicate via text is actually sending the wrong message and thus, they unknowingly end up chasing men away. <br /><br /><h2>Discover the Secrets of Texting Men to <i>Effortlessly</i> Stand Out from EVERY Other Woman</h2><br />Men have their own unique way of interpreting a woman’s communication attempts. Therefore, although many women mean well, they often do things when texting men that sometimes makes them appear too easy, too needy, too bossy, or too boring...even if these things aren’t necessarily true about them. <br /><br />Texting is the one medium of communication in which a great guy can easily get the wrong idea about you. And as these wrong ideas pile up inside his mind, they usually coalesce into a single romance-killing thought: That he can do better than you.<br /><br />So, what’s a girl supposed to do then?<br /><br />Simple really. All she needs to do is understand exactly how men appraise female texting habits and how to use this knowledge to differentiate herself as being a high-value woman. Doing so will make it easy for her stand out from EVERY other woman who texts him.<br /><br /><h2>How to Use Texting to Tease, Flirt, and <i>Entice</i> Your Way into Becoming His TOP Priority</h2><br />If you want to arouse the kind of long-term desire in a man that makes him eager to pursue you for dates, romance, commitment, and more, you must take advantage of texting and use it to make subtle and seductive displays of your high-status, and thus, your high-value.<br /><br />Fortunately, this is exactly what you’re going to learn in, <i>Texts So Good He Can’t Ignore</i>! <br /><br />In this fun and insightful dating book, you’ll learn the texting habits of high-value women and gain access to a vast collection of irresistible, man-melting text messages that make men EAGER to text you back and desperate to see you again. And because this in-depth guide focuses on how men think (unlike most dating books for women), it will give you a distinct advantage over your peers when it comes to texting men. <br /><br />Here’s what you’re going to learn inside:<br /><ul><li>Exactly what to text a guy when he’s stringing you along and only doing the BARE MINIMUM to keep you interested.</li><li><b>How to use mischievous "Feisty Girl" texts to get a man to finally ask you out (or ask you out AGAIN), while making it seem like it was all HIS idea.</b></li><li>What to do (and what NOT to do) if a guy suddenly stops texting you or starts responding to your texts less and less.</li><li><b>How to get him to CALL YOU instead of texting all the time.</b></li><li>What to text a man to "let him down easy" but KEEP him interested whenever he sends an inappropriate or overly sexual text.</li><li><b>Exactly what to text a guy who keeps "coming BACK from the DEAD" and suddenly starts taking an interest in you again. (Hint: These cheeky little texts will ensure that he either takes you seriously this time or take a HIKE!)</b></li><li>A simple method for starting conversations that IMMEDIATELY grabs his attention and makes him EAGER to text you back.</li><li><b>What to text a guy you know and like to initiate his "Chase Mode" and make him see you as MORE than "just-a-friend."</b></li><li>Game-changing answers to every woman’s MOST PUZZLING questions about men’s texting habits.</li><li><b>And much, much more...</b></li></ul><h2>Would You Like to Know More?</h2><br />Get started right away and discover how to text a man to <i>finally</i> get him OFF of his smartphone and ON more dates with you.<br /><br />Scroll to the top of the page and select the 'buy button' <u>now</u>.

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>

<h2>Discover the Feminine Quality That Makes Him <i>Crave</i> Your Attention</h2><br />Chances are, you’ve read just about everything you can on how to keep a man interested in you. Women’s magazines often give advice like “be your best self”, “focus on you”, or “put on that mini-skirt he loves.” While these things do work to keep a man interested, they’re surface level tactics that only work temporarily.<br /><br />Women who know how to keep a man happy understand what men want in a woman. 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? What do men secretly want in a woman?<br /><br />It’s simple…<br /><br />Graceful communication.<br /><br /><h2>How to Talk to a Man and Keep Him <i>Helplessly</i> Attracted to You</h2><br />If you’ve ever had a man shut you out or shut down on you during a disagreement it’s because you failed to communicate respectfully. If you want to be able to communicate your needs and wants to a man without him losing his temper or ignoring you completely, you must learn how to talk to a man <i>gracefully</i>.<br /><br />If a man doesn’t feel respected when you communicate with him it’s impossible to connect with him on an intimate level. And without that intimate connection, there’s nothing you can do to keep him captivated by you.<br /><br />To achieve lasting intimacy with a woman, a man needs to feel emotionally secure with her. But if a woman fails to communicate respectfully, he won’t feel confident sharing his whole heart with her.<br /><br /><h2>Become the <i>Only</i> Woman He Opens Up and Listens to</h2><br />Men give their undivided attention to those who respect them. If a man doesn’t feel respected communicating with you, he’ll find the respect he <i>needs</i> elsewhere. The woman who knows how to communicate with men can influence the man she wants without resorting to “that mini-skirt he loves.”<br /><br />A man craves the attention of a graceful woman who knows exactly what to say to him, when to say it, and most importantly, <i>how</i> to say it to get what SHE wants. Men love being <i>gracefully influenced</i> by the woman they adore.<br /><br />If you’re interested in learning how to talk to a man so that he opens up to you, listens to you, and willingly gives you what you want without a fuss, this book will help you to communicate with men more effectively.<br /><br />Here’s what you’re going to learn inside:<br /><ul><li>Discover how to tell him exactly what’s on your mind without turning him off.</li><li><b>Learn how to communicate what you want and need from him, and make him HAPPY to give it to you.</b></li><li>Find out the four most powerful words good men desperately need to hear from the woman they love.</li><li><b>Discover how to have difficult conversations with him without making him resent or resist you.</b></li><li>Learn how to be a good wife or girlfriend by being more assertive (attractive) with your man without being aggressive (unattractive).</li><li><b>How to understand the masculine mind and speak his language so that he FEELS exactly what you say to him.</b></li><li>How to get him to fall in love with you immediately AFTER an intense argument.</li><li><b>Uncover the secrets to making him to open up emotionally and get the deep, intimate connection you desperately want with him.</b></li><li>And much, much more…</li></ul><h2>Would You Like to Know More?</h2><br />Get started right away and learn how to communicate with a man so that he listens to you, opens up to you, and <i>deeply</i> craves your attention.<br /><br />Scroll to the top of the page and select the 'buy button' <u>now</u>.

<b><b>"Deliciously hilarious. If you care about people and enjoy a good laugh, I politely encourage you to read this book. Immediately."<br />--<b>Adam Grant, bestselling author of <i>Originals</i></b></b></b><br /><br /><b>From the brilliant comedic mind behind the hit movie <i>Yes Man</i>, a hilarious and pitch-perfect look at the rudeness that's all around us -- where it comes from, how it affects us, and what we can do about it</b><br /><br />You're not just imagining it: People are getting more and more rude - from cutting in line, gabbing on their phones and clipping their nails on public transportation, to hurling epithets on Twitter and in real life (including a certain President who does both). And the worst part is that it's contagious, leading reasonably courteous people to stoop to new lows in order to respond to the ever-coarsening encounters we face every day.<br /><br />In this engaging and illuminating new book, bestselling author and all-around curious guy Danny Wallace looks at the reasons behind the rudeness, and what we can do to stop it. His quest to stop the madness includes interviews with neuroscientists, psychologists, NASA scientists, politicians, and other experts. He joins a Radical Honesty group, talks to LA drivers about road rage, and confronts his own online troll in a pub--all to better understand the scourge that's turning normal people into bullies, tantruming toddlers, trolls, and other types of everyday monsters.<br /><br />Want to be part of the solution? Let Danny Wallace be your smart and funny guide.

<b>A delightful history of Americans' obsession with advice--from Poor Richard to Dr. Spock to Miss Manners</b><div><br /></div><div>Americans, for all our talk of pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps, obsessively seek advice on matters large and small. Perhaps precisely because we believe in bettering ourselves and our circumstances in life, we ask for guidance constantly. And this has been true since our nation's earliest days: from the colonial era on, there have always been people eager to step up and offer advice, some of it lousy, some of it thoughtful, but all of it read and debated by generations of Americans.</div><div><br /></div><div>Jessica Weisberg takes readers on a tour of the advice-givers who have made their names, and sometimes their fortunes, by telling Americans what to do. You probably don't want to follow all the advice they proffered. Eating graham crackers will not make you a better person, and wearing blue to work won't guarantee a promotion. But for all that has changed in American life, it's a comfort to know that our hang-ups, fears, and hopes have not. We've always loved seeking advice--so long as it's anonymous, and as long as it's clear that we're not asking for ourselves; we're just asking for a friend.</div>
