Talk to the Hand : The Utter Bloody Rudeness of the World Today Summary
From the author of Eats, Shoots and Leaves.
"Talk to the hand, 'cause the face ain't listening," the saying goes.
When did the world stop wanting to hear? When did society stop valuing
basic courtesy and respect? It's a topic that has been simmering for
years, and Lynne Truss says it's now reached the boiling point. Taking
on the boorish behavior that for some has become a point of pride, Talk to the Hand is a rallying cry for civility.
