Synopsis

We live in a world that’s very different from the one in which Emily Post came of age. Many of us who are nice (but, who also sometimes say "f*ck") are frequently at a loss for guidelines about how to be a good person who deals effectively with the onslaught of rudeness we all encounter. To lead us through this this miasma of modern manners, syndicated columnist Amy Alkon—The Advice Goddess—gives us a new set of manners for our 21st century lives. In chapters titled "The Telephone," "The Internet," "The Apology," and "Communicating," among others, Alkon maps out new rules that go beyond what fork to use to answer real questions we all have:• When is it okay to phone somebody instead of emailing or texting? When is it rude?• Why shouldn't you tweet about a guest at a private dinner party? Everybody knows privacy is dead, right?• How do you shut the guy up in the pharmacy line with his cellphone on speaker?• When is it right to approach somebody who’s crying in public and when is it right to leave him alone?• When should you unfriend somebody on Facebook and what do you say when she calls you on it?• If you have an STD, when do you tell people, what do you say and do you have to contact everyone you’ve ever had sex with?Real advice for today with more than a touch of humor, Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say "F*ck" is destined to give good old Emily a shove off the etiquette shelf (if that's not too rude to say).
