5.0 out of 5 stars THE book for a certain kind of man., 15 Mar 2011
This review is from: Chivalry-Now: The Code of Male Ethics (Paperback)
There are grown up men who wish they could be more like the valiant knights of their childhood stories. They dream about being a modern Knight of the Round Table, living their life according to a code of honor instead of what advertising and peer pressure tells them . They secretly entertain such notions as honor, duty, virtue and courtesy but refrain from using them in public because they don't rhyme with rat race and corporate ladder. Each time a woman says "there are no true gentlemen any more" these men feel a stabbing pain in their soul.

This book does two essential things for these men: First it updates the ancient codes of chivalry to a version that can be practiced in the 21st century. In an extraordinary way Dean Jacques has made a code of chivalry (the twelve trusts) that maintains the vigor and sense of responsibility of the knights of past ages but which is remarkably modern. Secondly the book explains chivalry is not an anachronism. Dean Jacques explains it is not only OK to be chivalrous in our time; chivalry is a part of the solution for some of our society's problems.
