Short Synopsis
In Choosing Civility, P. M. Forni offers twenty-five rules for connecting effectively with others—at home, at work, and in our daily encounters.

Full Synopsis
Most people would agree that thoughtful behavior and common decency are in short supply, or simply forgotten in hurried lives of emails, cellphones, and multi-tasking. In Choosing Civility, P. M. Forni identifies the twenty-five rules that are most essential in connecting effectively and happily with others. In clear, witty, and, well...civilized language, Forni covers topics that include:

  • Think Twice Before Asking Favors
  • Give Constructive Criticism
  • Refrain from Idle Complaints
  • Respect Others' Opinions
  • Don't Shift Responsibility and Blame
  • Care for Your Guests
  • Accept and Give Praise
Finally, Forni provides examples of how to put each rule into practice and so make life—and the lives of others—more enjoyable, companionable, and rewarding.

Choosing Civility is a simple, practical, perfectly measured, and quietly magical handbook on the lost art of civility and compassion.
