“‘What can I do to civilize myself and my community?’ asks Bill Stumpf and, in a simple and sophisticated, highly civilized book he shows us just how to reach out to, recover, and burnish the quality and delight in ourselves and our surroundings and even in currently unlovable objects like airplanes and hamburger stands.”
—Tony Hiss, author of The Experience of Place
“Bill Stumpf reminds us that civilization is a thing of things. If the things that we own and use are boring, ugly, and uncomfortable, then the things we think and do will be the same. Stumpf suggests enjoyable improvements for modern life. And here is a truly civilized things—social reformer whose goal is to get people to have more fun.”
—P.J. O’Rourke, author of Age and Guile Beat Youth, Innocence, and A Bad Haircut
