Pass on this one... 18 Jun. 2001
By Jim S. - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book seems to be something that some marketing people threw together to make a quick buck, and it shows. I should have realized from looking at the cover that is it not really about "Executive Image" the people look more like game show hosts. I hate to be so critical but there seems to be very little content, and what is there is questionable. For example it advises the use of black suits (Funeral overtone). I also purchased John T. Molloy's New Dress For Success and I am very happy with it and its content, this book I am returning.

Lacking depth 5 Mar. 2002
By Richard Fawcett - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am a firm believer in ongoing personal development, so I have continued to read and grow my perspective. Your Executive Image looked interesting because of attention given to clothing, space, gestures, etc...
Then I read it. Not all of it, but as much as I could before I realized this was a waste of time. For instance, the entire posture chapter could have been replaced with a single line: Posture is important as it conveys confidence or insecurity... The rest of the chapter reinforced this one point. Twenty minutes of time for a thirty-second concept. In some chapters, I didn't even see a worthwhile thirty-second concept (like the chapter on space).
Money could have been better spent elsewhere.

I'm throwing this book in the garbage 13 Jun. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a complete waste of money. There's hardly any advice in here at all (bringing to mind the famous Wendy's commercial, "where's the beef?"), and much of the advice is just plain wrong.
The author has this to say about polyester: "Polyester resists wrinkling, so it's great blended with cotton for shirts. A men's dress shirt in 65 to 70 percent cotton and 30 to 35 percent polyester gives the comfort of cotton with the ease of care and great looks of polyester." Huh? Polyester looks good? Is she kidding? Polyester is the ugliest looking fabric you can wear. I can spot one of those partially polyester shirts from a mile away, and it screams "cheap shirt."
The book covers several other topics, such as body language and etiquette, but everything is presented in a very cursory manner, leaving many gaps and unanswered questions. Illustrations, which are very useful in books about dress and etiquette (when it comes to describing a suit or a place setting, a picture is indeed worth a thousand words) are completely lacking. Although the book is 273 pages, it's printed in a large font and half the book is white space and blank pages.
So in conclusion, don't waste your money on this book. I'm throwing my copy in the garbage. No point of even wasting bookshelf space on it.

A really solid reference 7 Aug. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a really excellent reference book for anyone starting or striving to climb the corporate ladder. The sections on business etiquette are especially important for anyone trying to portray a polished, executive image. I also gained numerous good tips on the whole topic of business casual dressing, which I am trying to incorporate into my life. I strongly recommend this book.

This book is pure "crap" 15 May 2005
By Kenneth R. Burke - Published on
Format: Paperback
I should of paid more attention to the other reviews of this book before making my buying decision. My copy as well ended up in the garbage, where it belongs. Not only is the author inaccurate, most of the chapters are redundant; cut and paste statements. The individual that wrote this book should consider a new profession, and stop writing books. Needless to say, it deserves less than a 1 star. I am so mad at myself for wasting my time and money on this piece of garbage.
