This is a great book. It is a compilation of advice, and pretty much covers what you need to help your son become a mannerly gentleman, and to help your entire household to run more smoothly. It also has lots for us as parents to think about, to refine ourselves, and become better people. Many of the instructions in this book could be used for very relevant copywork, or you could even make posters and put them around the house.

First off, if you are offended by a book that quotes occasionally from the Bible and refers to Christian principles, this book is not for you. I am not rating it low due to that (I am a Christian), but I know that this is an issue with Amazon customers -- when religious content isn't clearly noted. This book wasn't overly heavy on religious content, but it was definitely written from a more traditional perspective.

I was really looking forward to learning something from this book, but struggled with the content due to its repetitiveness and minimal organization. Much of it read as if sentences had been cut-and-pasted from e-mail suggestions with very little editing. The formatting was also erratic -- but maybe that had something to do with Kindle? I don't know.

I think that this book would be most useful for parents who have not had good manners/parenting modeled to them. This is an important topic and I am disappointed that I didn't get more "take home" value, but since it was free, I got what I "paid" for.

This book is chock full of good solid common sense advice. Very easy to read. It is not full of uppity mannerisms. But very down to earth. All the things that help people function well in the world. The things I want my children to know but sometimes I can't seem to find the words to vocalize are all in here. Very glad to have read this and will refer back to it often.

Mr. Erskine draws on more than just his personal experiences, he gathered information from hundreds of families with boys. His book is laid out in a well organized format. He goes over a list of important manners that are so often overlooked these days. Then he gives you practical tips for helping your young men remember those manners. Lastly, he offers some "house rules" used by parents. Some things are funny. Some are common sense. I always prefer to hear from people who have been there, not some "expert".

[Homeschool Dad's wife] At the alarming rate that good manners have declined, I recommend parents, grandparents and anyone who works with kids to grab this quick and easy read with loads of practical advice. You'll be able to explain that manners are the key to getting where you want to be: respected, well-liked and pleasant to be around. The first portion of the book has numbered tips that cover a variety of settings. I was thinking it would be helpful to post a couple tips each week to remind my kids. The second section shares nuggets of wisdom from parent about implementing training on manners (some of these comments are quite funny...). Lots of good, practical suggestions and some encouragement not to give up. The last section is a compilation of suggestions on creating "Rules of the House." A great springboard for family discussion on what to include in your own unique set of House Rules. All in all, this is a dandy little volume with lots of helpful advice and encouragement. Grab your copy today and do your part to help civilize the next generation!

As a mom of three young boys this book is a must have! I cannot wait to take in all the info in this book! In this day of age of adults not even saying 'you're welcome' when your child says 'thank you' I believe everyone should read this book!

This book is a very well-written book of manners, especially for boys. Having two grandsons, most of it is common sense, but the author does a very good job of presenting the information in a way that a parent can relate to their sons. My grandson (at age 12) has actually enjoyed reading it on my Kindle and checking off the "good manner" things he already does and has set goals to accomplish the rest. Very well done.

Jim Erskine brings us another book filled with wonderful quotes and good advice... "One thing's for certain: Boys need LOTS of directions in developing manners. Trying to convince an uncivilized young boy that he should have good manners is what marketers call a "tough sell." They are naturally free spirits who do not want to be "civilized", and feel deep-down that having "good manners" is just a bit too girly." This is followed a few pages later with "By teaching our boys good manners, we are giving them skills they can use in every aspect of their lives." I'm looking forward to trying to implement some of these ideas with my two boys (and my dear daughter too). Thanks, Jim, for another book!! Blessings. :)
