Everybody has been new in business once for at least one day. Everybody will also have new collegues now and then. You can send them to this very well written and extensive page: Free Guide: How To Wait Tables. If you want hints in a list (and a bit hilarious) you can see Server’s Bible: 101 Tips How To Be A Good Restaurant Waiter. One day I’ll write my own CrazyWaiter manual for world domination 🙂
We CrazyWaiters are always fond of tips. Especially those who are serving in countries where service is not included (and salaries are

Hayden is known for his websites Tips for Tips and his Hospitality Formula Network which consists of a bounch of sites for waiters and other people in the hospitality business. Now he releases a book “Tips2: Tips For Improving Your Tips”. It’s not in a storyform like the Waiter Rant-book (also very recommendable) but it is broken down into 10 sections containing 52 chapters which each address a very specific skill to improve yourself.

David is very kind by giving the readers of CrazyWaiter.com a reduction of 20%. For that you have to use the coupon code “CRAZYWAITER”, valid until July 1st 2011.

You might also be able to buy/order it at your own bookstore using the ISBN’s: ISBN-10: 0-9836393-0-2 or ISBN-13: 9780983639305
