If you are a non-native English speaker, with an intermediate level and above, and you work for a company with international relations, then this book is the solution to all your English problems! Four main topics are covered: 1. Meetings 2. Negotiations 3. Socializing 4. How to understand fast-speaking native English speakers This book is designed to be used like a manual or user guide - you don't need to read it starting from page 1.
