The same thing goes for those with thousands to throw around, but they're probably looking for something beyond a decent Italian restaurant, ifyaknowwhatwemean. Concierge Confidential: The Gloves Come Off--and the Secrets Come Out! Tales from the Man Who Serves Millionaires, Moguls, and Madmen ($16) is full of unbelievable anecdotes as well as tips and tricks from one man who spent years as a concierge in the New York Intercontinental. Not only will the stories have you laughing, blushing and rolling your eyes, you might pick up a tip or two on how to get more for less.
