From the Author, Arden Clise

My inspiration for writing Spinach in Your Boss's Teeth was based on discovering how etiquette helped me feel more comfortable navigating the business world. I wanted to take the stuffiness out of etiquette and help people see it's simply a tool for being more confident, polished and professional in the workplace, which ultimately leads to greater career success.
