A book about rudeness – interesting but perhaps overlong

I Can't Believe You Just Said That: The truth about why people are SO rude - Danny Wallace

 

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoyed Danny Wallace's study into rudeness today which is bang up-to-date and quite interesting. It looks into various aspects of rudeness from Donald Trump to ASBOs and looks into where it comes from in the first place. Although labelled as humorous, I did not find it as funny as other reviewers but there are good moments.

At 340 pages, I felt that it could have been dealt with in a shorter time and therefore fewer pages although I have to add that the author has done his research well and consulted experts, citing many examples. Recommended to fans of Danny Wallace or those wanting ot find out more about my rudeness is becoming more prevalent these days.
