Even in a dog-eat-dog world, you should still know which fork to use. From proper grooming to proper attire, from dealing with foreign clients to dealing with the caterer, knowing the dos and don'ts of etiquette in the workplace is imperative for a successful business person. In the midst of a marketplace that has abandoned its social graces, it is the responsibility of the mature Christian to act with propriety and kindness. June H. Moore, a businesswoman and believer, teaches corporate Christians how to behave commendably, respecting their fellow workers even in the ferocious world of commerce.

Error on p.98 in the description of "White Tie" in the Formal Attire section where the author erroneously states that a "white tail coat and trousers" are worn. This description is miselading, as the tailcoat and trousers are black or midnight blue; and, she omits the white pique waistcoat that is worn with "white tie." The shirt should have a detachable wing collar, stiff starched front (no pleats) fastened with studs (silver or white), and single cuffs fastened with cuff links (silver or white).
The author *might* be confusing the US military's white evening mess uniform (optional) worn only in the summer or in the tropics. The white uniform jacket looks like a tail coat, but the tails are "curtailed;" the trousers are dark blue (Army), navy blue (Air Force), or black (Navy) -- not white.
I think the only ones who wear white tailcoats are jazz musicians (Cab Calloway comes to mind) and ill-informed wedding parties or high school boys taking their girlfriend to the Junior-Senior Proms.
