Wonderful book. I am not looking to become a butler, but work in the service industry and wanted to brush up and read about some new skill sets, and this book was most informative. Really enjoyed a lot of it, and who knows, maybe one day, it may persuade me to become a Butler!

You don't have to be a butler to love this book! 23 Sept. 2005
By David Adams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am NOT a butler, but I sought this book out on the internet and finally purchased it after thinking I could use it for many years. I was NOT disappointed. It is the best self-help book on the market! This book can help you organize your life on nearly every level. It is an organizers dream book for most of us who have to live without at butler. Yes, I am still in the process of becoming a good household manager, but now I have the advice and skills of my "guide book man".

Simply The Best! 2 Oct. 2004
By The British Butler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are involved in the world of private service, I highly recommend this book as a "must have." Mr. Ferry has gone to great lengths to get it right and the results are contained within the pages of this book.

Mr. Ferry presents us with a history of Butling (and other private service household positions,) and weaves a rich tapestry of service standards, duties, do's and don'ts, professional expectations and numerous other pieces of valuable advice throughout the book.

If you do not have this wonderful resource in your collection my advice is to get it and use it.

The most informative and concise book for this topic ever 21 Jun. 2006
By Kira - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I loved this book and still refer to in occasionally. I wish more books were written by him and perhaps in a memoir tone so it could be an entertaining version of this one. I've read others that are "behind the scenes" and was quite put off with the arrogance of them. Big accolades to Steven Ferry for writing a practical and inspiring book, I only wish there were more from him!

Butlers & Household Managers, 21st Century Professionals 5 Oct. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Six weeks ago I purchased your writings of Butlers and Household Managers, which I hasten to add is outstanding!!! It is to the point, pays attention to the details of everyday operations and the manner and style in which to deliver private service. It has proven to be a most excellent guide/reference that assists and refreshes me as needed. Your checklists are a valuable resource that can be edited or embellished to suit the circumstances. Thank you for sharing your expertise. This book is worth its weight in gold!

Butlers & Household Managers, 21st Century Professionals 5 Oct. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"This is just a short note, to say a very big thank you for a book that has now become a Bible in my work place. It is like reading parts of my life in print, and the appendages are invaluable to one in a butler's position. I thank you, with much appreciation." A butler on 5th Avenue
