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.
