Review

The pocket size volume is a clarion call to make the world a more jovial place filled with bonhomie. --Metro

About the Author

Born in London in 1965, Gustav Temple is the founder of The Chap Magazine, the satirical gentlemen's journal first published in 1999. Today he is the full-time editor and publisher of that journal, as well as penning freelance journalism for other publications. Mr. Temple is the co-author of four Chap-related books: The Chap Manifesto, The Chap Almanac, Around the World in 80 Martinis, and The Best of The Chap. Mr. Temple's other activities include organising The Chap Olympics, an annual Olympiad for the over-dressed, in which sportsmanship, athleticism and physical strength are not rewarded as highly as panache, guile and sporting a well-pressed trouser.

Enjoyed this book, was it a blast from the past? or meant as a good laugh. Certainly enlightened my dress sense.

Rather disappointing. This joke is tolerable as part of a broader magazine but becomes repetitive and unoriginal when a whole book is pretty much dedicated to it, with the author desperate to find fault with perfectly acceptable attire. Having read every Chap book, this is the only one I haven't found hilarious and the key variable is Vic Darkwood. Temple and Darkwood have co-written all the other Chap books and Darkwood's solo 'A Gentleman's Guide to Motoring' is magnificent and inspired. It's clear that Mr Darkwood is the one with the real comic talent: the Stewart Lee to Mr Temple's Richard Herring. 'Am I Chap?' is a bit like Blackadder I, before Ben Elton came along and made it funny.

One can dally a little too long considering the trifling minutae of a chap's wherewithal in this engagingly slim volume. Awfully good fun in a restrained way, although the book is rather on the not big side, as is the font size. Still, it commends itself to the odd dip in and out.

This is the most awfull dated rubbish. Plus a very poor writing style. Like the magazine of the same name it's snobbish and looks down on just about everyone.Lets hope this book and the mag that I am pleased to hear are having trouble with low sales are soon dustbin bound along with Temple.
