Is It Just Me?

by Whoopi Goldberg

Have you noticed people aren't as polite 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. Just look and you'll see: People yak on cell phones in restaurants, and even at church. Folks in carpools wear enough cologne to make your eyes bleed. Family outings to the ballpark are ruined by rowdy drunks. People talk in movie theaters like they are in their living rooms.Well, Whoopi Goldberg has noticed all this and more and asked herself, "Is it just me?" Unleashing her trademark irreverence and humor, her 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 us.

Whoopi's Big Book of Manners

by Whoopi Goldberg

I gotta tell you: everybody needs manners. Not because they're fancy. Just because people don't like to be around you if you don't have them. You know it's true. For instance . . . Who wants to sit next to somebody who talks at the theater? Or what's worse than SHOUTING into a cell phone? Or interrupting a REAL private moment by forgetting to knock on a door? Or-- I don't even want to say it. I'm too polite. This book has a little fun with manners (like I do). But if you want to know the dos and don'ts of getting along in company, you'd better take all this fun seriously. And since you've been standing around SO long reading this book--take it home! It's the mannerly thing to do. Ages 4 & Up
