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....

Warning: Old Book, New Name

This is a reissue, under a new title, of Danny Wallace's "I Can't Believe You Just Said That". So yes, I've unwittingly bought it twice.

I didn't get the same enjoyment from this as I have from Danny's other, "project" style books such as "Join Me", "Friends Like These", "Yes Man" etc. It has a rather more worthy tone and contains many references to research papers and books expounding on why we do what we do and, unlike those others, this is the only one of his audiobooks that I didn't listen to more than once.

He's a very good reader of his own work and this book is no exception in that regard and I know others will love it, but I'm afraid that I'm not in that number. I'll buy his next just the same, hoping that this was just a misstep.

Loved it

It would be rude not to give it 5 stars. Danny Wallace writes and reads in a very entertaining way and makes very valid points. I have read many of his books, (loved "Yes man") this is up there!

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.
