ON GOOD MANNERS: the gist of the book is good. Truly, how we treat people does effect both ourselves and those around us. The author is correct in outlining basic steps for self analysis and directing young ones to be aware of good manners and their effect on our community .So the text speaks to the audience on a relevant topic. The readability, however is very poor. Tense is not consistent, sentence structure incredibly awkward. In English, it reads as a poor translation from another language, The simple but pure message is clouded by mistakes in syntax. I would be interested to see a revised edition and encourage our writer to persist in the editing of this piece to improve the vernacular English and make the message of his writing unencumbered by the distractions of grammatical mistakes.

Don't bother!
Although I can see what Green is attempting to do in each of these four books (available separately) that form this collection, his language and style is very off-putting. The format is very, very basic, and his understanding and usage suggests that English is not his native one. At times I was quite unable to even make out what he was attempting to communicate. For example this is a quote from his work on Manners [with corrections in brackets]:
“I was returning from [the] office and it was quite late. I stand [stood waiting?] for the city bus service. I was standing after twenty people in the queue. It is quite common at the time of office breaking hours. [very cute expression - but it is not English!] At that time a group of seven boys [sic] aged around 17-20 reached there. They cut bad remarks to two women, which was sheer unspeakable...”
This may be barely acceptable in an early high school work, but not in a published book. I cannot recommend this work in any way. ( )

Total waste of time. You can learn more useful information from doing a quick search on google or wikipedia than you can in this "book"- which appears to be little more than a series of bloated, poorly written, poorly cited essays on matters of common sense. ( )
