From the Back Cover:

"Proper business etiquette is more than making nice with people you don't know or don't like. Bowman demonstrates how treating other people with dignity and respect, especially in business encounters, will pay rich dividends. It's not about you anyway. It's about them. It takes so little to make other people more comfortable (ie: cooperative) and it means so much."
--John Hoover, New York Times best-selling author of How to Work for an Idiot

"Don't Take the Last Donut is the quintessential guide for those who need to make effective people-connections in today's business world--and that's just about everyone. Bowman's advice is sharp, focused, easy to execute, and roll-up-your-sleeves practical. Her book is an essential read for those starting out and need a `how to' on business etiquette, or for even those who have been around awhile and should know better. This is a gold mine for those who follow through with Bowman's advice."
--Dean Philip Quaglieri, Dean, College of Management, University of Massachusetts, Boston

"Judith Bowman has written more than a book on manners and style. She's illuminated all the seemingly small leverage points that can make the difference between a great business relationship and a failed one. I wish I'd had this book ten years ago....there isn't a single page I didn't learn something from.....no one should enter the business world without this book."
--Steve Chandler, best-selling author of The Hands-Off Manager and 100 Ways to Motivate Others

"Much of Bowman's subject matter used to be taught in the home. Sadly that is no longer the case and this book will help the reader get through life politely, correctly, and successfully. Nuances will be a powerful tool in your career tool kit."
--Richard DeAgazio, president, Boston Capital Securities, Inc.

"Judith Bowman has penned the definitive guide to social and professional interaction. Striking at the heart of self awareness and emotional intelligence, Bowman provides a a step-by-step guide to social comportment for today's business executive seeking a competetive edge."
--Matthew Power, president, Risk Specialists Management, Inc., AIG

"This is the essential business guide for anyone in business, in the 21st Century."
--Michael Nitti, life coach/business consultant & former vice president, The Anthony Robbins Companies

"A readable code of manners that's certain to provide a kindness edge to anyone involved in today's fast-paced, high-tech business world. Don't Take The Last Donut is loaded with good, sensible advice on how to make a good, lasting impression on others and feel good about yourself."
--Bill Ketter, vice president for news, Community Newspaper Holding Inc., and senior vice president, Eagle-Tribune Publishing Co.

"If you want to make a great and lasting impression, Don't Take the Last Donut provides excellent advice for a wide variety of social and professional settings. With specific examples, Judy Bowman reminds us that we should never underestimate the power of properly presenting and conducting ourselves in the course of developing successful relationships."
--Steve Batza, executive vice-president, Liberty Mutual Group
