"How to be a PA is the book I wish I could have purchased when I first started out as PA. 20 years ago there was nothing available for PAs by way of a learning and development guide. Recently, I again searched Amazon to see what was available for PAs and again was disappointed by the options. This discovery led me to write my book and has enabled me to pass my career experience to date over to a new generation of career hungry PAs. Good luck and I hope you enjoy being a PA as much as I have." Author and EA, Maria Fuller.

"I wish I had this book when I started work in an office many years ago - very practical, motivational, easy to read and immensely helpful for anyone who wants to be a top notch personal assistant." Amazon UK Customer Review. "A very well written and comprehensive book for anyone who is either considering a career as a PA or secretary or someone who is starting out in their career as one. The information in the book provides a good grounding and explains the role of the PA well for those who have little or no experience, very thorough and easy to read and also useful for secretarial schools and colleges." Amazon UK Customer Review "This really is a very practical guide. I studied Business Administration and for two years have been in an office administration position. I recently decided that I wanted to be a Personal Assistant of some sort although I did have some doubts about whether such a role would suit me. I thought that I understood what the position entailed but I was not really sure until I read Maria Fuller's fabulous new book."
