Publisher's Summary

Passive aggression. Road rage. Snarky tweets. Queue jumpers. Idiots who are #justsaying. Fat shamers. Victim blaming. Furious waitresses who refuse to sell you a hot dog...
We are ruder than we've ever been. 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, bellboys, cab drivers, bin men, barristers, politicians, a limo driver called José 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 hot dog - 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 antirudeness revolution.

One of my favourite audible books

I think I saw a review saying "It doesn't seem that interesting from the title- but it is amazing". This is accurate. Every syllable of Danny's story is engaging, thought-provoking and ultimately a great snapshot of where we currently are as a society. Great stories, great narration and a truly fascinating audiobook.

Good but ending was a bit flat

Danny Wallace is great, funny and very pleasant to listen to. Enjoyed it all the way to the end where it just seemed to fall a bit flat. However still a very good listen.
