Start your review of Fucking Good Manners. The whole book boils down to just two 'commandments': 1. Treat others as you want to be treated yourself. In company, turn your fucking phone off. The rest of the book is just detail, explication of the above. Plus the Lecture see below. As it is I'm getting fed up with his second agenda of saving the planet and being preached at. It's not bad enough to dnf, The whole book boils down to just two 'commandments': 1. It's not bad enough to dnf, but it's annoying. If I want to read a book on global warming and recycling, I wouldn't have chosen a book called "Fucking Good Manners".
No plastic bags to take away. But get your hot food in a plastic takeaway clamshell along with plastic knives and forks and buy your juice in a plastic bottle before taking home your prepacked meat, veg and berries, all in plastic.
Whole Foods have put it all on us, and then we feel good taking home a paper bag instead of a plastic one. What a joke. So what might have been a 4 star humour book with some good shit to say is making me wonder if all this ecological stuff is to bulk out a thin book, or if Griffin thinks he wouldn't be able to sell that kind of book, so he's just slipping it in? Whichever, I'm irritated. View all 33 comments. December is the perfect time of year for a laugh.
Everyone is busy, it's hot and hectic and there's quite a bit of argy bargy when it comes to Christmas shopping and being considerate of others.
Griffin acknowledges that we can ALL do better when it comes to our manners and sets out to demonstrate. Chapter headings like public transport, driving, public toilets, queuing, the workpla After the demonstrably successful Fucking Apostrophes inSimon Griffin is back with Fucking Good Manners.
Chapter headings like public transport, driving, public toilets, queuing, the workplace and social media give the reader an accurate picture of what will follow. Griffin quickly identifies many of our pet hates when it comes to dealing with others family, friends, workmates and strangers and in doing so, inspires us to do better. The author uses his sense of humour to shed light on every day issues and just like Fucking Apostropheshe frequently makes me laugh in doing so.
In fact, I was reading this book in a hospital waiting room and cracked up when I got to this part: "The business world is full of ugly acronyms, obscure abbreviations and bullshitty jargon, generally deed to make people feel more intelligent than they are. It started with thinking outside the box, putting ducks in rows and hitting the ground running, but each workplace has its own unique set of bullshit buzzwords.
Forget about running things up the flagpole and touching base and getting the ball rolling and peeling back the fucking onion. Stop wasting people's time with this gibberish and start using some plain fucking English. A few old people were sitting across from me and were glowering but too bad, their loss. However, the best part of the book came at the end while reading the Acknowledgements when I recognised my name mentioned in the thanks section.
This immediately elevated this to a 5 star reading experience, but I need to stay true to the rating I'd already settled on in my mind before I lost my shit seeing my name printed in another book. Fucking Good Manners by Simon Griffin is a funny book with instant appeal for readers of all ages. It does contain the 'f' word on every though, so use your discretion. Highly recommended.

Seemed like a natural fit.
Review: This is a quick read and a mostly pleasant little book. I get the gimmick — there will be swearing! Not horrible. Does he recognize that some of those sides are super bad and wrong? Come the fuck on, dude. Jan 16, Nickie rated it it was amazing. A fucking good read. And what the world needs a LOT more of these days. And all is done with a fair amount of swearing and good humour, albeit it's truly serious message for today. I think that the chapter on social media should be required reading before being allowed to use any social media platform.
In honour of good manners, I want to thank the author for Fuck book new Griffin a most excellent and amusing book. Eco-activist and stickler for manners. Sep 15, Anshuman Domah rated it liked it. Just a reminder of the painfully fucking simple, blindingly bloody obvious, head-against-the-wall-ingly basic common sense that we all need to abide by.
One of the most entertaining re i've had in a while, where i've Fuck book new Griffin stopped to laugh out loud every now and then. Re like a grumpy drunk uncle reminding us how to be fucking polite and mindful of other fucking people. This book is dedicated for you if you enjoy listening to Denis Leary's song "I am an asshole".Fuck book new Griffin
