Publisher's Summary

This audiobook focuses on how your good manners can promote better relations and results with other people. The author emphasizes that exhibiting good manners does not imply weakness though some may interpret your efforts that way. The point is that getting results is all about them, how to encourage others to do what you want. The audiobooks gives concrete advice about how to use good manners to deflect aggressive behavior, how to recognize after making your best efforts how to back off or cut off ties with people you just can't please or reach a common understanding with, and always sticking up for yourself--but doing so pleasantly. The audiobook then addresses how to do this in a series of circumstances ranging from meetings, family, table manners and travel, to guests and good gestures. It concludes, aptly for these times, about how to act in bad times.

Simple and Straightforward

This book is worth a couple of dollars and an hour of your time. It's nothing earth-shattering and you've probably heard it all before, but I came away from it with an increased desire to be a pleasant person.

The reader is not a professional, but that didn't bother me, I found him to be friendly and engaging.

Great Listen

Deaver Brown is great and to the point. Short and easy listens. These lecture style listens are subject sensitive and to the point. While I could have used a bit more on modern day manners (owning a business in 2010) this was great.
