Not exactly the modern guide to manners that I was expecting, but I was pleasantly surprised by the humor in this book. More anecdotal than how-to.

Lest chat and more punchy lists would be more fun.

Not quite what I had expected, in fact for the most part it was a rather big waste of time to read. The book did give brief overviews of how manners have changed in the "modern era" with regard to the internet, e-mail, etc. but for the most part these weren't all that stunning.

Most of this book about manners in modern society is clever, especially when he is delineating the things that he finds irritating. It was good to see that someone else has similar opinions ti mine about the behavior of ppl.
