In clear, witty, and, well...civilized language, Forni covers topics that include: Think Twice Before Asking FavorsGive Constructive CriticismRefrain from Idle ComplaintsRespect Others' OpinionsDon't Shift Responsibility and BlameCare for Your Guests Accept and Give PraiseFinally, Forni provides examples of how to put each rule into practice and so make life and the lives of others more enjoyable, companionable, and rewarding.Choosing Civility is a simple, practical, perfectly measured, and quietly magical handbook on the lost art of civility and compassion.
