My only criticism of this book is it's American slant on being a Gentleman. For example, under the section describing hats, it talks at length about when it is and isn't appropriate to where your favourite baseball cap and type of suit you can wear it with! Also, it describes the various forms of address for Senators and Governors and the like, but neglects Lords, Dukes and other members of the aristocracy (not that anyone needing this book is likely to meet them...).
In all, a great first book on the subject which should encourage the reader to move on to more substantial works.
While some of this book sounds out-of-date in the modern scene, containing as it does so much information on formal dining, it is a goldmine of advice for all social occasions. If you wish to polish your image, then I would recommend this book to you. It is short, and to the point, and very informative.
Too UScentric to be of much use to the wider world and not enough information on wearing ties and shirts for example.
worth buying all in all though.

Bought as a gift for a 14 year old boy, hoping to influence him positively. Great read!Published 22 months ago by Tweedledee
I'm afraid that this book was the most patronising that I have ever read. I was looking forward to reading it, but it treats the reader like a child without basic manners.Published on 17 May 2001 by Martin P. O'Keefe
