Advance praise for Advance Your Swagger
“Can this be the dawning of a new Fonz? As hip hop’s self-appointed Emily Post-in-embryo points out, manners not only count, they can open doors. For a culture groomed on celebrity, cell phones, and fast food, Master Fonzworth’s words of advice are both timely and thoughtful. While a thoroughly entertaining read, taken seriously, Swagger could turn any sow’s ear into a silk purse, any frog into a prince.”
–Alan Flusser, author, president of Alan Flusser Designs
“Bentley is the most ‘etiquatted’ person I know. I always ask Bentley for style tips, now he’s sharing his secrets with the world.”
“Of all the gentlemen that I have known, Fonzworth Bentley is the most refined of them all. His style flawless . . . his etiquette impeccable . . . and his swagger timeless.”
“The right book at the right time written by the right man.”

This book covers a range of topics broken into different categories from Manners, Confidence, and Style. Easy to read, packed with pics, and nice illustrations, and its not a jumbo-sized Great book to have in the arsenal, and check in on times for refreshing. Sometimes, you have to curb the immature ways and act like an adult.
Great for kids and adults alike. Highly recommended.
