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".

Format: Paperback
This was a gift from my daughter, and when I'm done, my two prospective SIL's will find this required reading by their new "old man". While much of the pompous and effete prose was a distraction, there are many great passages to help a man up his game and improve his lifestyle. Many of the asides were inside jokes that only the culturally elite would get, and did nothing for the book. The sections on wine and single malt were excellent as were wardrobe and accessories. One can only hope that by now, these two aging frat boys have actually found real work and are gainfully employed.

If you are a man or know a man this book is a must. I originally bought the first edition in high school back in early 2000, and i was impressed so much that i decided to apply a lot of what i learned. this book really helped me out, especially when i was in college trying to balance my social life with work and school. among a few things i learned that i often get kudos for in my adult life that i can credit the book with are basic skills for mixing drinks, hosting gatherings, and grooming standards.

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.

Light-hearted but true seeds of wisdom abound in the pages of this book. I read the first edition and can honestly say it impacted my journey through my 20s. I think every guy could gain a little guidance by checking this one out.

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.
