I Can't Believe You Just Said That: The truth about why people are SO rude (Paperback)Danny Wallace (author)
- Not available
In this incisive and very funny book, Danny Wallace investigates the new wave of rudeness that threatens to overwhelm us.
He travels the world, visiting our rudest critics, interviewing psychologists, psychiatrists, bell boys, cab drivers, bin men, barristers, politicians, a limo driver called Jose and at least one expert in cooked meat production.
In doing so he uncovers the hidden truths behind what makes us rude, whether it can be caught, and how one small moment of rudeness-like being declined a hotdog-can snowball into disaster.
From the jihadist who launched a blistering attack on the "Bad manners" of his fellow ISIS militants, to the mayor in Bogota who recruited an army of mimes to highlight inconsiderate driving - this is a very funny and powerful exploration into the way humans work and why it is surely time for an anti-rudeness revolution.

"A meaty cry for human decency, wrapped in a deliciously hilarious hot dog bun. I plan to read it again and then force-feed it to my neighbour, my mother, and my college roommate. If you care about people and enjoy a good laugh, I politely encourage you to read this book. Immediately." -- Adam Grant, author of 'Originals'
"Hilarious" * GQ *
