Do you know someone who is incensed by compulsory tipping? Who is infuriated if kept on hold for more than a minute? Who is positively apoplectic if someone answers their phone during dinner? If so, you've probably encountered the phenomenon of the grumpy old man. Following the television series, this companion tome is packed with funny and informative chapters such as "Who are we," "What are we grumpy about," and "How can you spot the signs of grumpiness coming on," leaving even the grumpiest of men with a grin on his face.
