Random House presents the audiobook edition of F*** You Very Much, written and read by Danny Wallace.
You're not imagining it. People are getting ruder. And this is a serious problem.
The book that inspired the iTunes Top Ten podcast.
Did you know that even one rude comment in a life-and-death situation can decrease a surgeon’s performance by as much as 50 percent? That we say we don’t want rude politicians, but we vote for them anyway? Or that rude language can sway a jury in a criminal case?
Best-selling writer and broadcaster Danny Wallace (Yes Man, Awkward Situations for Men) is on a mission to understand where we have gone wrong. He travels the world interviewing neuroscientists, psychologists, NASA scientists, barristers, bin men, and bellboys. He joins a Radical Honesty group in Germany, talks to drivers about road rage in LA, and confronts his own online troll in a pub.
And in doing so, he uncovers the latest thinking about how we behave; how rudeness, once unleashed, can spread like a virus; and how even one flippant remark can snowball into disaster.
As insightful and enthralling as it is highly entertaining, F*** You Very Much is an eye-opening exploration into the worst side of human behaviour.
This book was originally published under the title I Can’t Believe You Just Said That. But we decided it just wasn’t rude enough....
"A cry for human decency...deliciously hilarious. I politely encourage you to read this book. Immediately." (Adam Grant author of Originals, Give and Take, Option B)
