Quaint idea...at once mawkish, pretentious, humorous, pseudo-proper...the discerning reader needs to filter the foppish silliness for the sagacity that is secreted within the product of two very full of themselves writers.

Rephrasing: there actually are good concepts hidden among the authors' perceptions/notions of "manliness"...and there is a lot of affectation, whether innocently conveyed or deliberately crafted I neither know or care to find out. Pick from the parts that make sense. And try to keep the condescending smile to yourself...

(This is a quick read if you have any cosmopolitan sense at all...) ( )

The author presents some common sense information with some good advice and some useless information. While I agree with much of what the author states, he appears to have some antiquated ideas on men's dress. Also, while some women may appreciate an attempt to be a gentlemen, others might be offended by treatment of them as unequals. I liked his discussion of character traits as outlined by Benjamin Franklin. So, the book is a mixed bag of ideas and you can take them or leave them. ( )
