The Wrong of Rudeness

The Wrong of Rudeness: Learning Modern Civility from Ancient Chinese PhilosophyThe Wrong of Rudeness: Learning Modern Civility from Ancient Chinese Philosophy by Amy Olberding
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Olberding develops her argument carefully and subtly. The slow and gentle steps mimic the politeness and civility she is arguing for. The book works quietly upon you, persuading you and drawing you in. One wishes that more people will read the book, so that it might work upon the public consciousness.
