From the Publisher: Most people would agree that thoughtful behavior and common decency are in short supply, or simply forgotten in hurried lives of emails, cellphones, and multi-tasking. In Choosing Civility, P. M. Forni identifies the twenty-five rules that are most essential in connecting effectively and happily with others. In clear, witty, and, well civilized language, Forni covers topics that include: Think Twice Before Asking Favors -- Give Constructive Criticism -- Refrain from Idle Complaints -- Respect Others' Opinions -- Don't Shift Responsibility and Blame -- Care for Your Guests -- Accept and Give Praise. Finally, Forni provides examples of how to put each rule into practice and so make life-and the lives of others-more enjoyable, companionable, and rewarding. Choosing Civility is a simple, practical, perfectly measured, and quietly magical handbook on the lost art of civility and compassion.
