    In what the General Practitioner called 'this intelligent searching work', the author of "Stigma" and "Asylums" presents an analysis of the structures of social encounters from the perspective of the dramatic performance.

Unique insights on presenting yourself in public

by VinceOz on Mar 29, 2010

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.
