Respect the law, respect your parents, respect yourself, respect the planet, respect your word. Respect plays an integral part of our everyday lives. It is central to the way we think, speak and behave. It is everywhere from the blink of an eye or the turn of the head to a moving political speech. But what is respect, exactly? How would you define it in simple terms to a child? Is there a way of describing respect which would help us to be more respectful in everything we did or said? This book takes a fresh look at the notion of respect. After providing a simple definition of what respect is, I will show how it can be applied in all aspects of our lives, and how it can help us improve relations with all the people in our lives, from our family and friends to the people we pass in the street. Ultimately, it will help you to be more respectful and respected.
