Overview

Is there any polite way to “shush” a chatty person at the movies? Should roller bladers be passed on the left side or the right side? When is it unacceptable to answer your cell phone? And why doesn’t anyone in your grocery store seem to understand the basic rules of shopping cart navigation and right-of-way?
 
If you’ve ever pondered these kinds of questions, How to Behave is the book you’ve been waiting for: a hip, irreverent, but entirely practical guide to proper behavior in the twenty-first century. Here are dozens of fascinating skills that Emily Post wouldn’t even think to mention—like the best ways to:
 
     •  share elbow space on an airplane armrest
     •  contend with road rage
     •  navigate an escalator
     •  observe basic e-mail etiquette
     •  speak on a cell phone without enraging others
 
. . . plus dozens of other essential survival techniques. Much more than a simple etiquette book, How to Behave is a real-life guide to living in the real world.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
If you're wondering which fork to use, this is not the book for you. How to Behave is designed for people in real-life situations, not Victorian make-believe. It offers witty, unpretentious answers to the questions we all ask: How do I deal with loud eaters and wrapper crinklers? How do you cope with a cheapskate date? Is it polite to not offer suntan lotion to friend? How do I deal with an impostor in the supermarket express lane? At the gym, what do you say to someone who hogs the treadmill? Sensible advice for anybody who has ever suffered from cell phone rage.
From the Publisher
“Move over, Emily Post!”—New York Magazine

“Hip, hilarious, and utterly indispensable, this is the perfect guide for those of us who have ever had a really bad date, navigated a busy airport, or been the victim of road rage.”—TucsonCitizen.com

“A 21st-century etiquette guide for [adults], this better behavior resource is both helpful and hysterical!”—Scholastic Parent & Child

    Don't recommend

    The book was a litany of the writer's pet peeves with the conduct of others. Little or no research was apparently used and the recommended solutions to broaches of behavioral protocol not only were not humorous as promised, but were impractical. I learned nothing from reading this book. Save your money.
