So lively, so witty, so exhilaratingly splenetic' Mail on Sunday 'Highly perceptive, passionately argued and extremely funny ... a brilliantly nailed truth about contemporary life' Sunday Telegraph 'Trademark Truss ... (very) readable, (very) funny, (very) engaging' Observer From the Back Cover The Queen of Sticklers takes on the sorry state of modern manners. "Without knocking anyone down on your way, hurry to the bookstore for a copy of Talk to the Hand... Long live the Queen of Zero Tolerance. And heaven help the rest of us." --The New York Times Book Review "Yes, people are now ruder than ever, and no, there's no excuse for it: The outraged and slighted can find solace in Talk to the Hand." --New York Post "Lynne Truss is "the Doyenne of Do's and Don'ts." --Newsday "The hilarious British fusspot is back with Talk to the Hand... in which she trains her zero tolerance wit on rude behavior, from the death of thank-you notes to the ubiquity of the F- word." --Glamour "She's cranky, she's articulate, and she's absolutely right. Just as she fomented a revolution in language, now she foments a revolution in behavior. You'll find yourself nodding in agreement; then you'll find yourself speaking up." --Victoria Skurnick, Editor-in-Chief, Book-of-the-Month Club "She can make 201 pages fly by as you snicker and chuckle, recognizing your own modern world in every paragraph. [...] Reading Talk to the Hand, you can enjoy a good laugh to offset the daily rudeness." --The Kentucky Herald-Leader --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
