Publisher's Summary

488 Rules for Life is Kitty Flanagan's way of making the world a more pleasant place to live. Providing you with the antidote to every annoying little thing, these rules are not made to be broken.

488 Rules for Life is not a self-help book, because it's not you who needs help, it's other people. Whether they're walking and texting, asphyxiating you on public transport with their noxious perfume cloud, or leaving one useless square of toilet paper on the roll, a lot of people just don't know the rules.

But thanks to Kitty Flanagan's comprehensive guide to modern behaviour, our world will soon be a much better place. A place where people don't ruin the fruit salad by putting banana in it...where your co-workers respect your olfactory system and don't reheat their fish curry in the office microwave...where middle-aged men don't have ponytails... What started as a joke on Kitty Flanagan's popular segment on ABC TV's The Weekly is now a quintessential reference book with the power to change society. (Or, at least, make it a bit less irritating.)

So funny and so true.

Kitty never disappoints. This was so great to listen to while doing stuff around the house. I laughed out loud so many times. So many of these rules need to be implemented. Every mobile phone in Australia should come with a printed and laminated set of flash cards with the mobile phone chapter on them.

I love Kitty

Like the first book but betterer. At first it seemed too dot pointed but it eased into KFs witty neurotic style and had me smiling repeatedly.

Great for a good laugh

Love Kitty Flanagan's humour. Fun and light-hearted ways to look at mundane tasks in every aspect of life.
