Explaining etiquette from A (Applause) to Z (Zits), from common courtesies to cell phone smarts to classroom decorum, Alex J. Packer blends outrageous humour with sound advice as he guides readers and explains why manners and etiquette are important: because people who know how to handle themselves in social situations come out on top, get what they want, feel good about themselves, and enjoy life to the fullest.

Full of practical tips for every occasion, How Rude! is a serious etiquette encyclopaedia; and a hilarious read. In 480 pages, this revised and updated edition describes the basics of polite behaviour in all kinds of situations at home, in school, online, and in the world.

"It is difficult to make a topic like etiquette seem relevant and appealing to teenagers, but that is exactly what Packer accomplishes. Drawing heavily on surveys of teens, parents, and teachers to target which situations are most pertinent, the opening chapters successfully sell the importance of manners to both the individual and society . . . This is advice on issues that teens care about."
- Booklist

"A fun guide that teens may dip into when facing a confounding situation . . . Packer's good nature and good sense make [How Rude!] a useful book for most collections."
- School Library Journal
