By Amy Alkon
Advice columnist Amy Alon rips the doily off the manners genre and gives us a new set of rules for our twenty-first-century lives. With wit, style and a dash of snark, Alkon explains that we now live in societies too big for our brains, lacking the constraints on bad behviour that we had in the small bands we evolved in. Alkon shows us how we can reimpose those constraints, ow we can avoid being one of the rude, and how to stand up to those who are. Forgoing prissy advise on which utensil to use, Alkon answers twenty-first century's most burning questions about manners.
