Hilarious - this book was just plain funny. Amy Alkon tells of rude experiences in public, and how people just seem to forget their manners - even though they are surrounded by other people. That's true in driving, in restaurants, coffee shops, your bank and police station. Cell phone use, and abuse is one of her focal points in the book. She comes up with some pretty wild, and wonderful ideas on getting people to "get it" regarding NOT yelling their social security number into their cell phone in a small coffee shop.

One of the truly amazing points about Amy's book is that she comes out and just tells it as it is. She has a photo of a guy's 4x4 with the WOZ license plate (NOT blurred out) - and tells the story of what this goofy person did. I love her solution of take photos of the car and license plate so that the person knows you are photographing them - it makes them paranoid and change behavior fast. She also comes out and tells the story about BANK OF AMERICA and how dumb their policies are - and how easy it could be for someone to commit fraud and steal money from your account. She tells the story straight up, without trying to hide the accused. The book feels like a brutally honest documentary film, with a lot of good laughs.

This is one of the few books I have really had a good laugh to. People around me must have thought I was weird to be reading, and periodically laughing - but at least that wasn't rude!
