The world is getting more complicated. In the good old days you could set a peasant on fire with a flaming arrow, stomp him out with your hourse, and still get away with a simple "excuse me." But these days, what with five billin people - many of whom do not consider themselves peasants - you are expected to meet a highter standard. It isn't fair, but it's life. that's why I wrote this book. It's your guide for gracefully navigating the annoying and ever changing world we live in. Think of it as a gift from me to you except that you have to pay for it...You're welcome.
