Choosing Civility: The Twenty-five Rules of Considerate Conduct
Title: Choosing Civility: The Twenty-five Rules of Considerate Conduct
Author: P. M. Forni
Presented by the co-founder of the Johns Hopkins Civility Project, an eloquent guide to thoughtful behavior and common decency presents twenty-five rules for connecting successfully with others, revealing how to apply each rule to everyday life to make your life, as well as the lives of others, more comfortable and fulfilling.
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
Choosing Civility is a simple, practical, perfectly measured, and quietly magical handbook on the lost art of civility and compassion.
