Or is It Nuts Out There?

Have you noticed that things aren't as civil as they once
were? Or that rudeness is no longer an exception but a
lifestyle? Sure you have. All you need to do is set foot
outside your door to see that bad manners are taking over
everywhere. People are yakking on cell phones in
restaurants, even at church. Folks in carpools wear enough
cologne to make our eyes bleed. Complete strangers think
it's OK to rub a pregnant lady's belly. Passengers abuse
flight attendants, family outings to the ball park are
ruined by rowdy drunks . . . a congressman heckled the
President of the United States.
Goldberg has noticed all this and more and asked herself,
"Is it just me?" Unleashing her trademark irreverence and
humor, her new book of observations takes a funny and
excruciatingly honest look at how a loss of civility is
messing with the quality of life for all of
So if your pet peeve is folks who talk in
movie theaters like it was their living room, or if you get
bugged by people clipping their nails and performing other
personal hygiene next to you on the bus, or if you cringe
when "please" and "thank you" get replaced by "gimme" and
"huh?" . . . you have found a kindred spirit. Because Whoopi
has witnessed the growing disrespect and rudeness in our
lives and realized she is not alone. And, as you'll discover
in these pages, neither are you.
