"I run training courses for secretaries and P.A.s and read this book to see if it would be suitable to give to our students as a gift. Suitable? It is essential. I'm going to buy a box-load. We are a Pitman training centre (in Preston) and our reputation has been built on turning out the best, most professional businesspeople in the business. So that's why I highly recommend this book." Customer review "A brilliant author with a deep understanding of human interrelations, who presents and shares her knowledge in a fascinating and at the same time quiet manner, which only a true professional can do. I've taken a great pleasure from reading the book for the first time." Customer review
