"This crazy redhead is on to something. Her pink Rambler story alone is worth the price of the book." -- Elmore Leonard

"Amy Alkon is intellectually promiscuous--and funny as hell." -- Paleopsychologist Howard Bloom, author of The Lucifer Principle

"Miss Manners With Fangs"--LA Weekly

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, psychology, 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.
