Waterstones Says

The author of Fucking Apostrophes offers some colourfully-phrased advice on acceptable social etiquette in modern society. From urinal protocol to cinema courtesy, the art of being civil is passionately defended in this ferociously foul-mouthed and relentless hilarious volume. 

This is not a book about how to be posh. We have some slightly bigger issues to deal with these days.

We've all got a million things to do and are constantly connected to millions of other people all doing a million other things, so the faster we get things done the better, right? Wrong. Among all the busyness and confusion it seems we've forgotten a few of the basics in life, like the ability to treat one another with respect, dignity and some fucking good manners.

Enter Simon Griffin, author of Fucking Apostrophes.

From the entry-level stuff like saying please, thank you and sorry; manspreading on public transport and double-lane queuing at airports, to those that require just a little bit more thought, such as correct urinal protocol in public toilets, making tea rounds in the office and online public displays of affection, Simon imparts rules and advice to living life in a way that makes it just a bit better for everyone. With some liberal use of rude words thrown in to emphasise the point.

With chapters on driving, social media, the environment, getting on with your neighbours, and the best manners for a trip to the cinema, this is the perfect gift for a manners enthusiast, or those in need of a gentle (but sweary) nudge in the right direction.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The author of Fucking Apostrophes (which, when teaching writing skills to undergraduates, I used very successfully to persuade them to take an interest in the correct use of that punctuation bane) takes on another of life's biggest irritations: bad fucking manners. With chapters on driving, social media, the environment, getting on with your neighbours, and trips to the cinema, it's the perfect gift for the courtly, the oafish and uncouth, or those in need of a gentle (and sweary) nudge in the right direction.' - Caroline Sanderson, The Bookseller

“Utterly brilliant read!”

Thank you Simon Griffin for such a great read … nodded and laughed along (sometimes out loud). Highly recommend it. Perfect as a coffee table book and ideal stocking filler.
