• How to star as a team player
• How to be good to yourself in order to be better at your work
• How to turn a social event into a business coup
• How to make a one-hour lunch more productive than a two-hour meeting
• How to beat the competition
• How to deal with sex in the office
• How to read body language and unspoken signals
• How to take control of a meeting that isn't going your way
• How to make corporate pressure work for rather than against you
• How to develop your own style for success

In Wyse's no-nonsense style, illustrated with personal anecdotes and insiders' stories, Company Manners is the book for anyone who wants the best of everything in the fast-moving, hard-hitting business world.
