I've had this book for quite a few years, and I often pick it up just for a quick read of one of the very well written essays featured in this collection.
The writing is wonderful, but it should be noted that this is a collection of short anecdotal essays for people of a "certain" class of people. Namely, there's a piece entitled "Jettiquite" in which the author suggests proper behavior while aboard someone's private jet.
So, while I can't entirely relate to a few stories, there are also some in
great book about occurrences in our daily life. short anecdotes tell you about the nerve racking neighbor or straining visits at your mother in law's...
the essays are well written, entertaining and simply true...stories you can definitely identify with

I started this years ago but never finished, and lately feel I've bought too much into the "showdown culture" and am due for a refresher. The subtitle for the collection of essays is Words of Wisdom on Civility in a Changing Society.
