  • A good explanation of the dramaturgical species of Jan 30, 2014
    by Michael A

    This book explains the dramaturgical form of symbolic interactionism.

  • Unique insights on presenting yourself in public Mar 29, 2010
    by VinceOz

    Charming book. Philosophical musings on how we all present ourselves when in company. Either in the company of friends, colleagues, strangers, superiors or people under us.

    Unlike other more modern books which tell you what to do (e.g. 'Act Confidently', 'Do This', 'Do That'), this one tells us what is, what we people do, whether we like it or not.

    Helps you think about what you might want to be mindful of when presenting the image you want to convey.
