Roane's Rules won't teach you how to swim with the sharks or win by intimidation, but it will teach you how to:
With Roane's Rules as your guide, you'll learn to create actions, responses, and follow-throughs that will help you move more efficiently, effectively, and powerfully through life.
The first third of the book should be titled 'Intro to Earth for Martians'. Real basic stuff with little to no insight. The rest of the book provides cursory-commonsense overviews and checklists, too thin to be useful, for hosting parties, being a good guest, giving/receiving gifts, networking, etc, etc.
Insightful excerpt on receiving gifts: 'Always say thank you and never degrade the gift giver or gift, you may not get another one.' -Susan RoAne
I found two or three useful canned lines for dealing with difficult situations.
