Reviews - What do customers think about Protocol: The Complete Handbook of Diplomatic, Official & Social Usage, 25th Edition?
This is an effective complete book about PROTOCOL Sep 15, 2008
With this book, you really learn to communicate and adopt the correct manner in your social life: business and official.
An excellent reference Aug 21, 2007
This comes in handy sometimes in my current job. There are a few things I wish it had that it does not (like world rank equivelents) but you can't have everything.
A Must Have! May 14, 2007
This is a wonderful resource if you are in the position of having international VIP guests or if you have occasion to travel internationally and associate with high level dignataries. It provides a lot of detailed information that is often overlooked.
Good content, poorly organized Nov 27, 2006
The information in this book is indispensable for anyone communicating or doing business with government officials in the U.S. and abroad. However, I must say that it needs some serious editorial attention.
As this is a reference book, I find it incomprehensible that there is no index for the section on titles and forms of address. For example, if I am preparing a letter to a foreign cabinet minister, I should be able to easily find the page number rather than flip through almost 200 pages of listings.
I recommend this book because there apparently are no alternatives on the market. However, if the publisher is reading this, PLEASE consider a more comprehensive table of contents for the next edition.

A "must have" book for people working with international organizations and high level military people. An excellent guide for everything from addressing VIPs to preparing invitations.
