When we read the title of Amy Alkon's new book, Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck ($10), we took a narrowed-eyed look around the room. Has someone been secretly watching us? Because this read is clearly speaking straight to us! A sort of how-to guide for the modern age, Good Manners reads like an extended version of Alkon's advice columns: quick-witted, slightly sarcastic, and full of good advice on how to navigate a world full of bad manners (and come out on the other side with your dignity and poise intact).
