Practical advice on being a gentleman in the twenty-first century.

Being a gentleman isn’t just being a nice guy, or a considerate guy, or the type of guy someone might take home to meet their mother. A gentleman realizes that he has the unique opportunity to distinguish himself from the rest of the crowd. He knows when an email is appropriate, and when nothing less than a handwritten note will do. He knows how to dress on the golf course, in church, and at a party. He knows how to breeze through an airport without the slightest fumble of his carry-on or boarding pass. And those conversational icebreakers—“Where do I know you from?” A gentleman knows better. Gentlemanliness is all in the details, and John Bridges is reclaiming the idea that men—gentlemen—can be extraordinary in every facet of their lives.

    While some of the information in this book is out of date or otherwise not useful (I doubt I will meet the Queen of England or the Pope), I find a lot of this information is on how to conduct yourself with friends, at the office or in various social situations. I took a lot out of this book because ladies definitely feel that manners are attractive, I would definitely recommend this book to my friends.
