it is a fun question to ask. Really when you come to think about it... it is not such a sily question at all. Even while Bilbo started out on his adventure as a tiny little shire hobbit, he truly did live through some adventures and would have been one of the better persons to go for counsil. For example, it would be good for all politicians to stand still one day and ask... what would Bilbo have done in this situations? Or bankers or managers... maybe live would have been much nicer?!
Before I start to sound like a hippy, which I am not (actually the opposite), I still find it a good idea to go back and look at the good old days, when live was simpler and good behavior could still be explained in books. While I have not seen the published book, it sort of reminds me of the old etiquette and survival guides I knew when I was younger. Somehow I hope to find out who the Shire Collective are and that I can send them over some questions for a little interview. In the mean time I'm going to pre-order this book, looks like it will be a good laugh and a fun read!
