This is not a book about manners, not a book about etiquette. It is a book about rudeness. 

Lynne Truss, bestselling author Eats, Shoots & Leaves and champion of correct punctuation, returns to fight for the cause of politeness. A joyous rant against the everyday institutionalised rudeness we've all become accustomed to, Talk to the Hand brilliantly dissects the incivilities of modern hand. Why are people so crass, selfish and inconsiderate? Is it anything to do with the way everything in our lives is organised to keep us at arm's length Why do we have to put up with so much swearing? And whatever happened to public-spiritedness.
