I wish I'd had this as a kid. I like that it encourages young men to act like young men, not little boys. It also provides a modern perspective on classic manners.

Personal Confession Time: Growing up I felt like an alien placed on this planet who had to study how to interact with people and learn how humans relate to one another. I saw other kids acting and playing like normal kids with each other but I largely did not understand how they knew to do such things. I was Sheldon Cooper without the genius intellect.

I would do or say things, observe the reaction and try to learn to recalibrate for future situations.

Eventually I found books like How To Win Frie

"Gentleman" is not a dirty word.

It's the little differences, the social graces, which separate the gentleman from the common man. It is not top hats, capes and attending the opera. It is holding doors for a lady, saying thank you for a gift in all circumstances, and knowing which silverware to use, and when. It is knowing when to speak, and when to hold commentary; it is knowing what to say and what not to say in changing circumstances.

Bridges once again provides an insightful, thoughtful and pr

Este es un libro de cabecera para todos los papás primerizos, o personas interesadas en aprender protocolo. Este libro explica sin razón y sin embargo con mucho sentido común, todas las situaciones en las que un pequeño señor tiene que ser educado.
Desde la explicación del por qué decir "por favor", hasta las razones por las que un hombre le tiene que abrir la puerta a una mujer.

I find myself walking around telling my family what a young gentleman would and would not do. I don’t even have a young gentleman in my house. It is a lot of stuff you probably know, but it’s always nice to be reminded. I know that I have deflected a few compliments in my day instead of just saying “Thank You.” Thank you for taking the time to read this review ;)

While the book is a little outdated on some subjects, my family enjoyed it. I read a chapter out loud each night at dinner. It made for excellent discussion on the various issues presented.
Manny
Useless little book. These are things my 6 year old has already learned. Maybe if you have living under a rock, this book would be useful. If not...... not so much.
Anne
Every young guy should read it. It's full with 'common sense' tips. Written in a very simple, fun and easy to follow language.
Amy
read a few to my boys at the dinner table every night and discussed them. Think this might be one to own and keep close by!!
Melody
Amusing, warm, and informative, this etiquette guide for boys strikes all the right notes. Covers the basics, and a bit beyond.
Ed
Cute book on manners that should be part of every young man's 7th birthday. What to do, why to do it and how.
Molly
I am making my son read this as well - much of the advice is perfect for anyone, not just young men.
