REPLY ALL... And Other Ways to Tank Your Career

Richie Frieman. St. Martin’s/Griffin, $15.99 trade paper (272p) ISBN 978-1-250-03726-8
Frieman, host of the “Modern Manners Guy” podcast on the Quick and Dirty Tips network, wants to help his fellow young professionals navigate the waters of office life and create a hazard-free career. His approach alternates between the buddy-buddy and tough love approach: “Say it with me: ‘The world doesn’t owe me anything.’” Complete with tips from celebrities and successful businesspeople, such as the cofounder of Warby Parker and the owner of Magnolia Bakery, the author covers job interview etiquette, the art of making a good impression, the best way to handle a first day on the job, dealing with co-workers and office politics, socializing at work, handling social media at work, not losing it at work events, business travel etiquette, and workplace relationships. This advice is interspersed with Modern Manners Guy quizzes and tips from celebrities. While there aren’t many new ideas here, Frieman’s cheerful and energetic voice will win over readers, and confused young professionals may find that Frieman is the one to remind them not to end up with a lampshade on their heads at the office holiday party.
