“He’s been telling GQ
readers how to dress and behave for eleven years. But Style Guy Glenn O’Brien’s true expertise may be the art of social navigation. So take it from the man who has always made sure he’s in the right circle. (Hell, he had a new-wave talk show! His boss was Andy Warhol!)” ~GQ
“Rather than a list of do’s and don’ts, How to Be a Man
is part philosophy treatise, part sartorial self-help manual and part call to arms for the Renaissance man. It’s a clever collection of essays on topics ranging from grooming (‘Man is a Fur-Bearing Mammal’) and accessorizing (‘Jewels and the Man’) to behavior (‘How to Fight Like a Man’) and death (‘How to Exit’), all in prose that’s entertaining and fun to parse.” ~LA Times Magazine
“There are the requisite chapters on how to dress with panache for the occasion, as well as nuggets of humor and wisdom related to socializing, travel, dealing with doctors, dealing with religious people and even getting into fights. ‘Using the appropriate epithet is crucial,’ point out O’Brien.” ~WWD
“But Mr. O’Brien id also versed in design and fashion, the author of the long-running GQ
advice column, The Style Guide, as well as a new book, How to Be a Man.
” ~New York Times
“How to Be a Man: A Guide to Style and Behavior For the Modern Gentleman
is possible the best title for a book I’ve ever seen!” ~Slamxhype
“…I think I’m going to start leaving copies of [it] at bars and restaurants in LA so that locals can get some tips…” ~Champagne and Heels
