5Management Wisdom for 2012
By Amy Boeckholt Wilt
Table for Three is written for both the newly promoted manager or a seasoned retail executive. It was great mental floss for me and I've been in retail for a few years. I found myself highlighting and re-reading many of the sections. It takes a modern, creative and personal approach to managing and creating better relationships with employees and customers. I enjoyed the format with 50 short chapters, each one of them insightful and self-contained. I appreciate the real lfe examples that the author uses to illustrate his comments.

5Informative, fun and quick read!
By smartypants127
Table for Three is a great quick read with useful information that managers and salespeople often forget about..some of the info is just "matter of fact", however,often overlooked or skipped as we sometimes become routine in a management or sales role.....its written in a casual and personable style, packed with professional tips on how to become a more effective manager.
This book makes a great gift for friends, co-workers, or staff!
