Rated 5 out of 5 by from How Others See Us This book addresses how others see us in a business environment. It caused me to be introspective and ask myself, what message do I send to my clients and coworkers? Usheroff gives scores of useful tips on improving one's presentation skills and leaving favorable impressions upon meeting with business prospects and social contacts. The book is written in an easy to read fashion and is time well spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't Let the Cover Fool You Don't let the cover fool you, Roz Usheroff packs a wallop in this insightful and dynamic read. At first I was skeptical when my Mother sent me this book as a gift to help me achieve my own goals in life. The book style looked like so many others I had seen before, but it was the content of this book which blew me away. Roz does a solid job in outlining all the key characteristics that can help one move to the top in a chosen profession. This book takes a rational, reasoned approach to finding career success. Unlike other books in the same vain, it is not filled with mumbo-jumbo quick-success schemes but rather, identifies what makes one stand out in the crowd without stepping on anyones toes. My only complaint was the rancid cover. Other than that, this book is a 10/10. In any case, I used Roz's formulaic suggestions and the results have been better than average since I am now in my first managerial position since graduating University 2 years ago. Thanks Roz.
