In How to Become an Excellent Server: Earn a Tip Above 20% Every Time, Daniel Lysak provides an entertaining yet informative guide for success in the often challenging world of restaurants. More than just a "how-to" book, it is filled with real life examples and amusing anecdotes. The author applies his research of psychology and people to the ultimate “people job”: waiting tables. Being a server can be a thankless and often humiliating way to earn money, but Daniel Lysak "turns the tables" and puts the server in charge by focusing on personal interaction. The book first takes a deep dive analysis of how a server's relationship with managers, restaurant hosts, bartenders, and fellow servers is crucial to success. Then, the book examines the most important relationship of all: that with the customer. By illustrating the uniqueness of each table, the book provides a framework for working the room - and ultimately earning oversized tips every time. Over one night, increasing the average tip from 15% to well over 20%, a server's income is substantially improved. Daniel Lysak explains how to make it a game, win the game, and enjoy people - peers and customers - at the same time.<br /><br />"Daniel Lysak’s book is a must-read for all in the hospitality industry, from the kitchen staff to the servers to the top management. My extensive experience in all levels of the restaurant business in America, Italy, and South America tells me that Daniel is 100% right! Use his advice to score 20% (and much more) in tips. Beyond that, use his strategies to get ahead with your boss, your peers, and your clients. Read and reap the rewards."<br /><br />Matteo Russoniello<br />General Manager, Il Canale<br />Georgetown, Washington DC<br /><br />“When I first met Daniel in my office, I knew in a moment I had in front of me an extraordinarily talented young man with big dreams and a contagious enthusiasm. 
Beyond inspiring, his fearless and eager disposition reflects his roots and the essence of Italian hospitality. Daniel’s “opera prima” is a must-read primer for anyone considering the first step toward a successful career in this industry.” <br /><br />Franco Nuschese <br />President, Georgetown Entertainment Group<br />Owner, Cafe Milano<br /><br />

<DIV><B>The original guide to good manners explains why “nothing is less important than which fork you use.”</B><BR /><BR /><I>Etiquette is the science of living. It embraces everything. It is ethics. It is honor.</I><BR />  <BR /> A popular phenomenon when it was first published in 1922, Emily Post’s <I>Etiquette</I> quickly established her as the undisputed authority on considerate behavior. Her books, syndicated column, and radio program soon made the phrase “according to Emily Post” part of the American lexicon. Though updated editions have appeared over the years, the original text is both a fascinating window into American high society at the dawn of the Roaring Twenties and a timeless testament to the value of social grace.<BR />  <BR /> Covering a broad range of topics, <I>Etiquette</I> includes chapters on “Tea and Other Afternoon Parties,” “Balls and Dances,” “Etiquette in Business and Politics,” and “Travelling at Home and Abroad.” This edition also includes an introduction by editor Richard Duffy as well as photographic illustrations throughout.<BR />  <BR /><I>This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.</I></DIV>

<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.<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>This updated and expanded edition of the classic etiquette guide addresses all the newest developments, trends and protocols.</div>

<DIV><B>In an era of incivility, discover a timeless guide to good manners from First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt.</B><BR />  <BR /> “The basis of all good human behavior is kindness,” says Eleanor Roosevelt in this classic handbook, first published in 1962 as a “modern book of etiquette for modern Americans.” As a politician, diplomat, and activist, as well as the longest-serving First Lady of the United States, Mrs. Roosevelt knew that thoughtful, civil behavior was essential to peaceful, productive relationships. In this etiquette guide, she teaches that decorum is not about strict adherence to formal rules; it is about approaching all social situations with consideration for others. She advises, “If ever you find yourself in a situation in which following a formal rule would be manifestly unkind, forget it, and be kind instead.”<BR />  <BR /> Drawing from her personal and professional experiences, Roosevelt covers a broad range of topics, including business dealings and family affairs, writing letters and receiving guests, and entertaining at home and traveling abroad. Beginning with the necessity of good manners between husband and wife, she considers the importance of courtesy in society at large and the role all Americans play as ambassadors of democracy while visiting foreign countries. In an era of incivility, <I>Eleanor Roosevelt’s Book of Common Sense Etiquette </I>is more relevant than ever.<BR />  <BR /><I>This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.</I><BR />  </DIV>
