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%? 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? Bestselling 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. "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 *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...

Thank You is Implied, a new collection of essays by Andrew Marx, takes on wide-ranging themes from legalizing trips to the bathroom, gambling in third-rate casinos and what it takes to make the list of the sexiest songs ever written! In his own inestimable and entertaining style, Marx skewers his sex life (been there, done that), tackles celebrity culture (et tu Brett Favre?) and even devours all-you-can-eat USDA Canner grade prime rib and lives to tell about it! Culled from a 17-year writing career and his Smart ReMarx blog, the book frames the author's humorous and unrepentant take on pop culture, sports, relationships and everything else. If you are wondering who predicted the decline of Pluto, the collapse of the economy, and the end of the All American Football League, the answers are all here. Blending news reports with reviews and opinions, each article is annotated with additional commentary, anecdotes, and explanations (and a couple of apologies) from the author. Thank You is Implied will delight long time fans and newcomers alike. Featuring one of the most unique voices to come along in the last ten years, this collection will make you laugh and leave you thinking. Every article is peppered with the sharp wit and smart remarks that have made Marx's writing completely original and thoroughly satisfying.

A true classic of twentieth-century literature, this edition has been updated by Fitzgerald scholar James L.W. West III to include the author’s final revisions and features a note on the composition and text, a personal foreword by Fitzgerald’s granddaughter, Eleanor Lanahan—and a new introduction by two-time National Book Award winner Jesmyn Ward. Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read. The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s third book, stands as the supreme achievement of his career. First published in 1925, this quintessential novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers. The story of the mysteriously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when The New York Times noted “gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession,” it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.

When Larry Yapici, permanent student at Berkeley in San Francisco, sets off for Istanbul to claim an unexpected inheritance, he has no idea that his first overseas trip will take such an unexpected and dangerous turn. Within a few days he and his cousin Nedim from Germany, are swept up in an adventure that is to take them to some of the most far-flung, inhospitable places on earth. It also soon becomes clear that there are a number of parties with more than a passing interest in their quest—a quest that sets Larry and Nedim on a path of discovery that challenges them to question everything they had previously learnt about the history of mankind. Whether they will survive these challenges is another matter.
