I See Rude People: One woman's battle to beat some manners into impolite society by Amy Alkon
English | September 27, 2009 | ISBN: 007183639X, 0071600213 | EPUB | 224 pages | 2.6 MB

We all just suck it up every day. You leave the house for a latte and somebody'll flip you the bird on your way and force their loud cellphone conversation on you once you're there.

It doesn't have to be that way, says award-winning syndicated columnist Amy Alkon. Her hilarious stories of in-your-face encounters with rude people and businesses will inspire you to stand up to the boors in your own world.

Alkon not only gives the offenders a taste of their own medicine, she delves into anthropology, pscyhology, and behavioral science to figure out why we're rude and how we can stop all the intruding, shoving, and shouting. She ensures that all these rude people get their comeuppance:

Lax parents
Internet bullies
Rude drivers
Negligent businesses
Telemarketing executives
Car thieves
Parking space hogs
That loud jerk in the drugstore line

In this funny, ferocious and freewheeling expose, Alkon gives you the tools you need to confront these abusers and restore common courtesy, respect and good manners to society…one chastened cellphone shouter at a time.
