The old-fashioned, repressed, un-moisturized man has been banished to the hinterlands and a new breed is taking center stage. He is a man of style, sophistication, and security, just as strong and confident as his predecessor, but far more diverse in his interests, his tastes, and, most importantly, his self-image. He may be seen at an NBA game one night and an art gallery ...more

Good book and it also makes a great gift to friends. I like it and it also had some good hints for life and enjoyed the reading list and movie list.

The label Metrosexual is pretty ambiguous these days. I used to own a book titled something like 'Stuff every guy should know,' and I tell you more than half of the same advice and content is in both of these. The typical gentleman 50 years ago seems like he would largely fit into the class of Metrosexual. And just about every 'man' book these days has the standard lists of what to wear, to drink, to say etc. But a 'normal' non-metrosexual guy is clearly one who doesn't wear his clothes well, or ...more

Ha ha ha! Thanks Jess. It happened totally by chance; I don't take pointers...I swear. But if you are looking to fix yourself up, and you want to be so last decade, take a glance. It's a book that just might help those who are socially retarded.

Skemmtileg en léttvæg bók sem er þegar orðin úrelt. Bestu notin er að geyma hana í 50 ár í viðbót og gefa svo tvítugum einstaklingi sem partýgjöf.

Good, concise guide for being a reasonably hip, aware, educated individual-applies to more than just men, really. Certainly leans towards the 'preppy,' but most Metrosexuals do. There are tangents off into other styles, but it revolves around a particular lifestyle... with which I tend to agree and practice. Chapters on: General etiquette; Wine & Cocktails; Dining Out; Art & Culture; Music, Books & Film; Fashion & Personal Style; Good Grooming; Body & Fitness; Sex & Romance; Home Décor; and the ...more

A mistake. For me to have read and him to have written.

This is a warmed over rehash of
a) Mrs Manners Guide To Manners
b) Emily Post
c) Esquire Style Guide

Put this in the same category of great art as "Four Christmases"

It must be darn difficult to be a metrosexual guy. Kudos to men who actually follow the suggestions in this book!

I can't give this a 3.5 Stars, which I would. It was rather general, but did include a collection of useful improvements. The breakdown of wines and cuisines were most definitely appreciated!

This book is awesome. Seriously, there aren't that many men's guides to fashion so since there aren't many, this one is really good.

Didn't find many new things in this and found the "metrosexual"-word in the title quite arbitrary: it's more a general style and etiquette guide. Not boring, but not especially interesting either.

Shelves: self-help
An entertaining refresher on the topics of grooming, etiquette, and general social skills,with just enough humour thrown in to make it an interesting read.
