All in all, a mixed bag. There's some fantastic advice in this book, such as "When a gentleman wants his guests to leave, he simply puts the liquor away," some common-sense advice that will only come as news to complete boors, such as "A gentleman never uses a toast to ridicule or embarrass a friend," but also some really weird stuff that I will never do, such as "A gentleman always tucks his undershirt into his underwear." TMI, John Bridges.
