A perfect "pick me up" book, THE BOOK OF NICE is an obsessive and wide-ranging collection of essays, timelines, charts, and lists about the origins of all things nice - from why we smile or give standing ovations to the story behind why we say please and thank you and hello and goodbye. Written by an award-winning journalist, THE BOOK OF NICE delves into the origins of 82 seemingly small "nice" gestures, symbols, and phrases and argues convincingly that they are what make the world go 'round.
