At the age of fourteen, George Washington wrote 110 guidelines to cultivate civility and orient himself toward others. He just might have been onto something.

Rudeness. Crudeness. Thoughtlessness. Hostility. Uncivilized behavior is everywhere. Although these guidelines are 250 years old, they’re still just as necessary in today’s society. From nail-biting to gossip to choosing friends, George Washington believed it was possible to spark inner change through outer habits. Civility: What Would George Washington Say? presents these 110 rules with engaging and conversational commentary, describing how they can be applied in the twenty-first century. And interspersed throughout the book are anecdotes, sidebars, and quotes. The tips and principles in Civility will enable readers to better handle interpersonal conflicts, conduct business, manage everyday stress with grace, and treat their fellow citizens with more respect.
