Kitty knows the Rules for Life. In-fact she knows 488 of them. Such as Rule 122 – Don’t sit next to someone unless there is no alternative. If you get on a bus and there is an empty seat available, you are obligated to take that seat, even if you have to walk a bit further to get to it. Don’t sit down to rub thighs with a stranger when there are still ‘full empties’ available. 

488 Rules for Life is Kitty Flanagan’s way of making the world a more pleasant place to live. Providing you with the antidote to every annoying little thing, these rules are not made to be broken. Thanks to Kitty’s comprehensive guide to modern behaviour, our world will soon be a much better place. A place where people don’t ruin a fruit salad by putting banana in it … where co-workers respect your olfactory system and don’t reheat their fish curry in the office microwave … where middle aged men don’t have ponytails. 

Kitty has delivered the quintessential reference book with the power to change society. (Or, at least, make it a bit less irritating.) 

488 Rules for Life is available from October 1st – but you can order an exclusive signed copy right now! Click below to get reading on all of life’s funniest lessons.
