Talk to the hand
Book Number: 39278
Profile Trade, 2006. Hardcover in d/w. Very good. 'Talk to the hand 'cause the face ain't listening,' the saying goes. When did the world get to be so rude? When did society become so inconsiderate? It's a topic that has been simmering for years, and Lynne Truss says that it has now reached boiling point. Taking on the boorish behaviour that has become a point of pride for some, Talk to the Handis a rallying cry for courtesy. Like Eats, Shoots & Leaves, Talk to the Handis a spirited conversation, not a stuffy guidebook. It is not about forks, for a start. Why hasn't your nephew ever thanked you for that perfect Christmas present? What makes your builder think he can treat you like dirt in your own home? When you phone a utility with a complaint (and have negotiated the switchboard), why can't you ever speak to a person who is authorised to apologise? What accounts for the appalling treatment you receive in shops? Most important, what will it take to roll back a culture that applauds rudeness and finds it so amusing? For anyone who's fed up with the brutality inflicted by modern manners (and is naturally too scared to confront actual yobs), Talk to the Handis a colourful call to arms - from the wittiest defender of the civilised world.
