Summary How to behave is a skill that many of us are no longer taught, except by trial and error. With wit and perception, and drawing on her own snafus, Sandi Toksvig highlights decency rather than convention in this guide to 21st-century graciousness. ("If you do it right, being a grown-up is just like being a kid ... without people telling you off.") Toksvig advises on the social pitfalls of every life stage (from christenings to condolences) and provides fascinating details about how manners have evolved'from the earliest etiquettes (little cards to remind courtiers how to behave) to the trolls of Twitter. Full of useful information, (Un)Common Courtesy will be a joy for both lifetime readers of Miss Manners and etiquette newbies!
