This book was interesting to me because of the source and my recent exposure to etiquette lessons. The book is very relatable as a man, and very clear.

The author wrote it in a manner that any man who is conscious of proper behavior can relate to. And it it is very pertinent and easy to follow.

This book will be helpful in your relationships with all the ladies in your life. From your daughter to your mother-in-law.

I bought this for my 20- something son. it succeeds in being non threatening, conversational, but quite comprehensive. it constantly refers to a survey of women and their expectations of men, which gives it a more objective air.not too long. Recommended.

I purchased this book as a gift for my grandson upon his graduation from 8th grade. (I also got him a desk/work station so I'm not THAT geeky!) I read parts of the book before giving it to him, however. For the most part, it contains helpful information and good advice that EVERY MAN should know but is sorely lacking in many adult men and most young adult men that I've encountered. Mostly, it reminds us that manners and etiquette are designed to make a person more comfortable in any given situation because it offers guidance on how to act and what to do around others so they are also comfortable and feel respected. Open doors for women and elderly, put the toilet seat down, clean up after yourself, etc. Also good advice on how to be a family man/father. When dealing with dating and women, however, it uses the "Significant Other" approach rather than spouse or girlfriend. It tells a guy to keep his living quarters clean and neat, especially his bathroom and bedroom, because "You never know when a date may wind up back at your place for the evening/night." If you do not condone this type of activity, you will need to have a discussion with the young adult to reinforce your family's morals/standards. Otherwise, good information.
