"At last we have a study that brings together much of what we have learnt about everyday life from social thinkers over the past fifty years or so. Inspired by Goffman s classic work, Susie Scott brings coherence to previously disparate fields. This book is much needed and long overdue. It provides an invaluable introduction, a unique and comprehensible synthesis. This is an indispensable gift to students of social psychology and social interaction."
Ken Plummer, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, University of Essex
"A lucid and richly illustrated account of how the so-called little things loom large. Integrating theory and empirical work, this book will be invaluable to teachers and students of everyday life."
Tia DeNora, University of Exeter
