Summary
Have you noticed that things aren't as civil as they once were? Or that rudeness is no longer an exception but a lifestyle? Sure you have. All you need to do is set foot outside your door to see that bad manners are taking over everywhere. People yak on cell phones in restaurants, even at church. Folks in carpools wear enough cologne to make your eyes bleed. Passengers abuse flight attendants, family outings to the ball park are ruined by rowdy drunks, a congressman heckles the President of the United States. Here, comedienne and film star Whoopi Goldberg unleashes her trademark irreverence and humor in a funny and excruciatingly honest look at how a loss of civility is messing with the quality of life for all of us.--From publisher description
