I assumed this book would have specific information about how to be a gentleman (I bought it to read alongside my boyfriend). I expect to read detailed advice sections, stories, and other anecdotes and justifications for polite practices which will help a gentleman succeed. Instead, the book is a gloss lacking detailed information about etiquette. I will say that it's funny -- I laughed out loud at parts -- but I feel like this is an introductory overview of the things gentlemen should know and does not actually provide an preparation in being gentlemanly. I will say that from those glosses one can glean what else to read for actual preparation. Fast, fun read for someone who is aware of the ropes, but not so sure if those ropes are really worth it.

This is the book every young man should be required to read before he is allowed out into public.

A well written, informative and entertaining guide to guys on how to step up to life and with some luck and finesse - be a success.

In essence, this book defines a gentleman as a person who can effectively mask his lack of taste and knowledge in an effort to get close enough to women to have sex with them. I've never read a book that used the word "sneer" so many times. It prides itself on its "let's-update-bubba" tactics, and largely advocates lying about one's life as a means to convince others that one is actually a well-mannered, educated, broad-thinking individual. I am disgusted and appalled that I wasted my money on such a low-brow, puerile piece of trash as this.

Too much of this advocates cheating and cutting corners. It is not a guide to a gentlemanly lifestyle. This author does not know what a gentleman is.

This book is mediocre. The book is really more about the author's opinions than advice suitable for applying to life and useful tips. He has some hits, and some misses. The best chapter, Living Large, contains some handy hints and good general knowledge. Likewise, the author develops material that is either irrelevant or treats to tritely. The section on how to goof off at work is silly, and the two sentence description of "How to make friends at work" is useless. The section on clothes, Looking Good, contains basic advice, but needs more diagrams or pictures for better clarification. The chapter of "Feeling Strong", basic health advice, is a collection of elementary advice. The last chapter, "Loving Well" on relationships, is nothing new.
Therefore, this book contains a few gems, but the majority of it is basic advice peddled elsewhere or the author's opinions that may or may not be suitable for your life.
The author makes some really valid statements that are right on and easy on the eyes. He distills the subject matter into a highly potent brew that can help any of us, who were not born into the "lifestyles of the rich and famous" to at least not make a fool out of ourselves when placed into situations requiring some finnesse. I have read it a number of times. His wit alone is worth the cost of the book.

If you like to read GQ and want to become more than what you are then I highly suggest this book for you. Most of the other reviewers seem to be down on this book. I don't understand why. I really liked it. I read it twice.

Here is a quote:

(When asking about wines...)

"Do not say, 'What's your best stuff?'

"Do say, 'I know we'd like a pinot noir. Would you recommend a domestic or French? What's the best value?'

You are conveying some basic knowledge, a big dollip of humility, and a genuine concern that you not spend the month's rent on drinks. The sommelier will appreciate this and do you right."

This is my kind of book. To the point, and offering guidelines for actionable pleasures.
