How Rude! by Alex J.Packer, Ph.d

How Rude!: The Teen Guide to Good Manners, Proper Behavior, and Not Grossing People OutThis is a quick easy read; a "how to" on manners. It's kind of sad that we even need something like this, but we definitely do. I found it engaging and at times laugh out loud funny. The little sketches are great!

The book covers almost every aspect of life; everything from texting, writing thank you notes,answering the telephone, how to respond to a compliment, job interviews etc.

While it's a teen guide, I would be cautious about buying it for a young teen as not everything may be age appropriate. For example, "safe" sex is touched on. You may or may not agree with the advice given. So just a heads up. As a parent, you may want to discuss this with your child first before they get advice in a book.
