Good Manners With Bad Words

St. Martin's Press

Had enough of the people who make loud cell phone calls in nice restaurants? 

You and Amy Alkon might have a few things in common. 

She writes the column "The Advice Goddess" for newspapers and also hosts a radio show offering advice. 

And she has plenty to offer on the appropriate manners for modern situations. 

Alkon's new book on the subject is Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck

Yes, the asterisk is part of the title.  Whew.
