It was pretty good. Not nearly as insightful as her first book (Eats Shoots and Leaves), but interesting nonetheless. It got a lot of bad reviews because of her negativity, but I actually didn't find that to be the case; the whole point of the book is to complain about stuff, and she does so with humor and perspective. There were some points where I was laughing like an idiot at the way she put things. It could have been a bit more organized though. She broke everything into into how rudeness occurs in one of 5 ways or for one of 5 reasons or something like that -- clearly it wasn't a very logical or necessary organizational system, because I just read it a week ago and can't remember what her "system" was. She could have done without trying to be logical or orderly about it and just stuck to bitching about stuff. It works well as memoirish editorial writing, but it's hardly highbrow sociology, so the categorization stuff wasn't needed.
