    Return to Civility: A Speed of Laughter Project
    by John Sweeney, The Brave New Workshop

Who Wrote the Book?

Motivated by his experience at a concert during which a Grammy-award-winning musician was forced to quit mid-song in order to ask the audience to ratchet down its conversation, author and speaker JOHN SWEENEY rallied THE TROOPS at his comedy theatre to come up with 365 ways to lead a more considerate, and considered, life. The ideas shared in Return to Civility are not about changing others; but rather, are a list of ways we can alter our own actions and behaviors.
