He shows us exactly how people use such 'fixed props' as houses, clothes, and job situations; how they combine in teams resembling secret societies; and, how they adopt discrepant roles and communicate out of character. Professor Goffman takes us 'backstage' too, into the regions where people both prepare their images and relax from them; and he demonstrates in painful detail what can happen when a performance falls flat.Hide synopsis

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.
