The Utter Bloody Rudeness of Everyday Life [or six good reasons to stay home and bolt the door]

TALK TO THE HAND is not a book about manners or etiquette. It is about the rudeness of the modern world, and the sense of outrage that infects us every day as we discover that other people are - generally speaking - crass, selfish and inconsiderate.

In her follow up to EATS, SHOOTS & LEAVES, Lynne Truss asks why rudeness is a universal flashpoint in our increasingly alienated society, and examines specific sources of affront. What ever happened to "please" and "thank you"? Why does the customer have to do all the work? Why do people behave in public as they do in private? How much swearing do we have to put up with? Whatever happened to the idea of public-spiritedness?
