About the Author:
As a practicing corporate attorney who frequently dined with clients, Mike Lininger quickly learned to appreciate the value of displaying correct etiquette and wine knowledge in business and social dining situations. After reading the commonly available references on the subjects of etiquette and wine, he discovered that they are generally books of several hundred pages that, despite their length, do not offer advice for many real world situations.
Taking a break from the practice of law, Mr. Lininger formed Yellowstone Publishing and, along with his collaborators, endeavored to create a comprehensive set of dining, etiquette and wine reference materials in a format conducive to efficient, convenient learning. They started by reading every dining, wine and etiquette handbook available. They also spoke with restaurant professionals, writers, and critics to get their input. Their contemporaries in politics, management, law, sales, management consulting and other fields also offered invaluable examples of dining situations they had encountered. Finally, as they started to draft the scripts for these CDs, they sought guidance from professional educators to help structure the lessons. The resulting materials provide an amazing amount of information in an efficient and enjoyable format.
