Review published on May 5, 2017.
I enjoyed Danny Wallace’s study of rudeness today, which is bang up-to-date and quite interesting. It looks into various aspects of rudeness from Donald Trump to ASBOs and looks into where it comes from in the first place. Although labelled as humorous, I did not find it as funny as other reviewers, although there are good moments.
At 340 pages, I felt that it could have been dealt with in a shorter time and therefore fewer pages, but I have to add that the author has done his research well and consulted experts, citing many examples. Recommended for fans of Danny Wallace or those wanting to find out more about why rudeness is becoming more prevalent these days.
