This book is the short slap to the back of the head most people need nowadays. In a world that's more likely to flip the bird than hold the door, it's their reminder of proper behavior. You'll receive a (re-)schooling in manners with lessons split up by situation, then tackled by topic. Each note corrects conduct that's become all too common, like . . .Bad Behavior: Popping a piece of gum into your mouth midconversation, and stressing your point by snapping it.Courteous Fix: If you're going to have a piece of gum while talking to someone, be sure to offer your companion a piece--and keep your mouth closed as you chew. You want your breath to be fresh. Not your attitude.It's a reminder that it wasn't always out of place to be polite.

Good manners

What I mainly enjoyed about this book is the humorous style of the author. Uncommon Courtesy by Jennifer M. Wood is basically a guide that has the purpose to reeducate a misbehaving world. The writer emphasizes that a while ago it was not uncommon to be polite, but it was actually a necessity. I totally agree with many of her concepts and I strongly believe in the idea that if you respect others, you actually respect yourself. Today is not the same thinking, but reading this book might raise some question marks in your mind. I enjoyed that the book is a modern alternative to the guide of good manners, adapted to the society of today.
