Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of F*** You Very Much, written and read by Danny Wallace.

You're not imagining it. People are getting ruder. And this is a serious problem.

The book that inspired the iTunes Top Ten podcast.

Did you know that even one rude comment in a life-and-death situation can decrease a surgeon’s performance by as much as 50 percent? That we say we don’t want rude politicians, but we vote for them anyway? Or that rude language can sway a jury in a criminal case?

Best-selling writer and broadcaster Danny Wallace (Yes Man, Awkward Situations for Men) is on a mission to understand where we have gone wrong. He travels the world interviewing neuroscientists, psychologists, NASA scientists, barristers, bin men, and bellboys. He joins a Radical Honesty group in Germany, talks to drivers about road rage in LA, and confronts his own online troll in a pub.

And in doing so, he uncovers the latest thinking about how we behave; how rudeness, once unleashed, can spread like a virus; and how even one flippant remark can snowball into disaster.

As insightful and enthralling as it is highly entertaining, F*** You Very Much is an eye-opening exploration into the worst side of human behaviour.

This book was originally published under the title I Can’t Believe You Just Said That. But we decided it just wasn’t rude enough....

Funny and interesting.

This is my first encounter with Danny’s work and I really enjoyed it. It was both funny and interesting and I would recommend it. I look forward to checking out more of his books.

Same book, different title.

This is difficult because the book is actually really good, however I’ve already read it!
I am a big fan of Danny Wallace and when I got a notification saying his brand new book was available I clicked buy immediately. I was so disappointed when I started it only to find it’s the same book I bought a few months ago under a different title.
