Recommends it for: Awesome people
I haven't read but an excerpt of this book but DonLeavey is fucking hilarious and brilliant. One of those authors your friend recommends and you're like, OK whatevs. And within a page you're all, "Oh my God! This is it! I forget there was writing left in the world that can punch you in the face, like--POW! This is style, you waspy cowboy!" . An elegant man in tweed with a pipe and cane is not to be ignored.

The compleat handbook for the modern cad. Oscar Wilde once defined a gentleman as someone who never unintentionally offends anyone. If that's the case, this book provides the means by which one may intentionally offend anyone one likes whilst still maintaining one's gentlemanly status.
