Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say ...

We live in a world that's very different from the one in which Emily Post came of age. Many of us who are nice (but who also sometimes say "f*ck") are frequently at a loss for guidelines about how to be a good person who deals effectively with the onslaught of rudeness we all encounter. To lead us through this this miasma of modern manners, syndicated columnist Amy Alkon - The Advice Goddess - gives us a new set of manners for our 21st-century lives. In chapters titled "The Telephone", "The Internet", "The Apology", and "Communicating", among others, Alkon maps out new rules that go beyond what fork to use to answer real questions we all have: When is it okay to phone somebody instead of emailing or texting? When is it rude? Why shouldn't you tweet about a guest at a private dinner party? Everybody knows privacy is dead, right? How do you shut the guy up in the pharmacy line with his cellphone on speaker? When is it right to approach somebody who's crying in public and when is it right to leave him alone? When should you unfriend somebody on Facebook and what do you say when she calls you on it? If you have an STD, when do you tell people, what do you say, and do you have to contact everyone you've ever had sex with? Real advice for today with more than a touch of humor, Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck is destined to give good old Emily a shove off the etiquette shelf (if that's not too rude to say). 1.

A few years ago, humorist and journalist Henry Alford found himself 'reverse-apologizing': offering apologies for other people, on their behalf, when they failed to do so themselves. Ever since, he's realized he needed to take a closer look at manners-his own, and others'. In WOULD IT KILL YOU TO STOP DOING THAT? he interviews experts both likely (Miss Manners, Tim Gunn) and unlikely (a former prisoner, an army sergeant). He volunteers himself as a tour guide for foreigners visiting New York City, and as an online etiquette coach for his friends. He travels to Japan. He teaches Miss Manners how to steal a cab. He designates the World's Most Annoying Bride. Providing answers to questions like, Why shouldn't you ask a cabdriver where's he's from?, and Why is posting baby pictures on Facebook a fraught activity?, this hilarious and non-elitist book looks past the standard 'dos' and 'don't's' of good form, in search of ways we can treat each other better.

'R azory-wicked, fun...each of [Alford's] stories are like those 'tiny acts of grace' brightening your day.' - Kirkus Reviews Everyone knows bad manners when we see them. But what do good manners look like in our day and age? Troubled by the absence of good manners in his day-to-day life-by the people who clip their toenails on the subway, Henry Alford embarks on a journey to find out how things might look if people were on their best behavior a tad more often. He travels to Japan to observe its culture of collective politesse. He interviews etiquette experts both likely (Judith Martin, Tim Gunn) and unlikely (a former prisoner, an army sergeant). He plays a game called Touch the Waiter. And he volunteers himself as a tour guide to foreigners visiting New York City in order to do ground-level reconnaissance on cultural manners divides. In this illuminating and seriously entertaining book, Alford tackles the etiquette questions specific to our age-such as: Why shouldn't you ask a cab driver where's he's from? Why is posting baby pictures on Facebook a fraught activity? What's the problem with 'No problem'? WOULD IT KILL YOU TO STOP DOING THAT is a wry and warm way into a subject that has sometimes been seen as pedantic or elitist, and an accessible guide on how we can simply treat each other better.
