A rule book for living in a world without rules, Modern Manners is an irreverent guide to anti-etiquette for the '90s and beyond. Pointed advice covers a range of topics from sex to death to reading habits. Also included are the most up-to-date forms of vulgarity and churlishness, as well as the latest fashion in discourtesy and barbarous display.

I loved this book. It's got that off-the-cuff snarkiness that can make O'Rourke a genius. It's over the top funny and worth a read. The part where he makes up interesting family histories still makes me laugh. Read full review
