    Office attire and e-mail misfire. Twitter snafus and dating miscues. Philip Galanes hears an awful lot of WHAT SHOULD I DOs?!

    “I’m pretty sure the woman who swims laps next to me at the Y is peeing in the pool. What should I do?”

    It started in 2008, when Galanes began the “Social Q’s” advice column for the Sunday Styles section of The New York Times.

    “My boyfriend has an identical twin that I’m strangely hotter for than I am for him. What should I do?”

    Since then, the questions come faster than a drunken starlet behind the wheel of a speeding Maserati.

    “My Dad seems to have mixed up my cell phone number with the number of the woman he’s seeing behind my mother’s back. He sends her sexy texts that are freaking me out. What should I do?”

    A cornerstone of The New York Times’s Styles section, Philip Galanes confronts today’s most awkward and pressing questions. Branded with an inimitable voice— witty and wise, sharp and saucy—Philip tackles unanswered questions and brand-new subjects with laugh-out-loud dish and practical wisdom. Not only about the new ways to thank a friend for throwing you a bridal shower (at a strip club), or when it’s appropriate to tell Nana to stop dressing like the latest Pop Tart, but also how to navigate a new age crowded with Tweets, twits, OMGs, and WTFs.

    Social Q’s is a knockout book that will guide you swiftly through the treacherous terrain of modern etiquette—and keep you laughing for days.
