Lynne Truss, the author of Eats, Shoots, & Leaves, is at it again.  In Talk to the Hand, she entertainingly bemoans the demise of good manners and civility.  Along the way she provides a good deal of insight into why we have manners in the first place and the ways in which they are slipping.  There's something reassuring in all her tales of woe, perhaps because having a better understanding of the problems makes it easier to articulate solutions.  There are many useful tidbits in this book for those of us who teach aspects of professionalism to lawyers-in-training.   (spl)
