This is not my usual book, since I'm always on the Fiction side of the library. I did enjoy it, though. As someone who has been disturbed by the increasing rudeness of our society, I was surprised when the author suggested that in some ways we're LESS rude than we were in the past. There's a new way of looking at things I hadn't considered, so on that basis alone it was worth my time.
I did like the rules, and the examples of uncivil vs. civil responses to the same situation. There are some rules I need to pay more attention to myself, which makes me a bit more forgiving of others who also behave badly from time to time.
Our world would be a better place if everyone practiced the considerate conduct outlined in this book.
