How to Be a Gentleman Revised & Updated: A Contemporary Guide to Common Courtesy (Hardcover)
by John Bridges
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 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.
