In the irreverent spirit of A.J.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am not an American and I'm not from a culture where tip is expected when you receive any services (except some expat-oriented restaurants). So this book was a great source of knowledge that I learn about the history of tipping, how people tip and what is the appropriate amount. It has proven useful when I traveled to the USA. I have already recommended this book to friends and family.
