Judith Martin, born a perfect lady in an imperfect society, is the author of the "Miss Manners" columns and best-selling books, two novels, and a travel book on Venice. She and her husband live in Washington, DC. I am that person, however, clearly defined boundaries just don't exist anymore. As a mother who works from home, this book had very little information that applied to me. There is no indication on the outside of the book that it focuses on job situations.
I can see from the description on this site that it is job-related but since I picked it up at the library, I had no idea. I was disappointed because I like Miss Manners and was looking forward to reading her advice. I'm sure that if you have an outside job, or are looking for a job, this book would be helpful.
Miss Manners is a national treasure. Here she untangles the wilds and woes of office and professional life with clarity and kindness. I didn't read every word - ah, the joys of retirement - but I happily skimmed and retrieved nuggets of good advice.

Recommended for anyone who ever considered throwing a missile into the next cubicle. Jun 18, Hannah rated it it was amazing Shelves: non-fiction , american. Another tome replete with wisdom from my beloved Miss M. Entertaining and useful! Recommended for any working person or just any human being with a sense of humor. Everyone who works with others, or some day wants to, should be required to read this book. Aside from addressing specific ettiquette issues, one of the larger themes of this book is that personal and professional lives need to remain separate.
I most fervently agree, and wish Miss Manners had the power to make this law. Jul 20, Katie rated it really liked it Shelves: professional-development , humor. I want to be Miss Manners when I grow up.

A fun and diverting read! Miss Manners has a snooty wit that's absolutely delicious. She also has quite a bit of wisdom. Some things I learned while reading.

Hmm, this book was good but not as genius as I am used to from Miss Manners. Maybe it's just that I don't care as much about business as I do weddings, or that there's not as much exciting drama in the business world. It was still good, but I wasn't rapt. Miss Manners has the most hilarious yet appropriate way of expressing everything and quite a range of people who write in. This book was good, but I didn't get as many moments of true awesomeness as I normally get from her. Good advice, as always.
