Editorial Reviews

Review

“Peculiar, brilliant, funny, smart, and it will turn you into a cool person, like CNN’s Anderson Cooper and me.” 
—Augusten Burroughs, Entertainment Weekly

About the Author

Phineas Mollod uses his Vanderbilt law degree to counsel his wayward pals in divorces and landlord-tenant imbroglios and write about technology law in New York City. 
 
Jason Tesauro forewent law school for a mastery of wine, spirits, style, and sustainable food. You’ll find him swinging a croquet mallet in Richmond, Virginia, or wielding a champagne saber as he conducts the Modern Gentleman Seminar Series and other events of consequence around the world.

We found this to be hilarious and well written.

This was everything I was looking for in my quest to understand what being a modern gentleman was all about.

I don't think I am a caveman because i do not want to buy an ascot.

This is the wittiest, funniest, savviest collection of observations on how to be an effective male in the twentieth first century you can find. Don't confuse this vast smorgasbord of essays on everything from wine, dating, music choice, sex, in-laws, kink, and clothes with the kind of pseudo-cool yet actually uptight advice you'd find in GQ or similar post-frat boy rags. Practical and highly amusing at the same time.

I reference this book as much as the bible. It has become my second bible. I take it everywhere I go right in my napsack, in my car and whenever boarding a plane. Imagine all of the witty advice columns you've read in Playboy, Maxim, GQ, Mens Health, etc. and you have the MG series in one tidy and handsome package. Read it, soak it in and live like a gentleman. And if nothing else it is an excellent conversation starter.

Format: Paperback
This book touches on a lot of things, some I feel might have become extinct long before today's time but it is still nice to see how a gentleman should conduct himself. Even if the situations are from another time, seeing how to behave can still be used to construct a better understanding for oneself and thus improvement.

Call me closed minded but I had to pull a star for the part about homosexuality, sorry but I felt it was just thrown in there at the end of the chapter as to try and say "hey gay readers we have something for you too".

Overall, there were some useful tips and guides. Some of the tips kind of jump around a bit, and the focus was more on single guys. I need one of these books for a married man. I would buy it again.

this is how all etiquette books should be written, no topic is off-limits, and real life scenarios are respected. It is both witty and insightful and can be read in snippets... the perfect tool for review before any important occasion.
