Overview

Complaining, Teasing, and Other Annoying Behaviors by Robin M. Kowalski

Not only are obnoxious behaviors inevitable, they are frequent and apparently becoming more so. People seem to be increasingly dissatisfied and ever readier to complain. Since the 1960s people seem to have become less concerned about the feelings of others. Thus they are less hesitant than earlier to engage in malicious teasing or to behave in ways that make others feel inferior. If surveys are any indication, instances of betrayal and lying are also on the rise.

I recently had the true pleasure of personally meeting the author, Robin Kowalski, and now I know why this book is so good ... and that's because she's extremely sincere and engaging. In other words, she's got world-class manners. I read this book with great fascination ... it answered a lot of questions about unproductive human interpersonal behavior. Kowalski's book also gives you ways to handle and understand it, and that's what we need the most. Bad behavior ain't ever going away, but now that I understand what causes it, I'm much more confident in dealing with it. So, what do I do from time to time? Well, I'm a substitute teacher ... of teenagers! ........ Todd Sentell also teaches learning disabled students social skills and everyday etiquette. He's also the author of the hilarious social satire TOONAMINT OF CHAMPIONS
