I think society has placed values on the wrong type of men and women. But being a young woman who has yet to see everything, I believe and know that there are still wonderful men I've yet to meet and it gives me hope. We are often told that these "bereolaesque gentlemen" are non exist but reading this book sheds a new light on a very dim subject.
Lastly, I don't want to give too much away but a section in the book "Rule #155 says: Don't apologize when an apology is not called for. How many times has someone said "I'm sorry?" if they can't hear someone instead of "Excuse me?" An apology is not a question." This excerpt may seem trivial and you may think you know, but the author gives examples of how little things can make all the difference!
Thank you Mr. Bereolaesque!
The author finds a way to make this book personal in nature, and in a way that men can feel at ease. There is something for every single man, from every single walk of life, to take. You can highlight certain attributes of your personality and still retain the person that you are, and that is something he explains, reinforces, and encourages throughout the book. For example, if you're a wine taster, there's something for you. If you are the type to buy flowers for your lady of interest, there's something for you. If you're the type who likes to experiment with your appearance, there is something for you. If you're a "manly man," and are set in your ways (which isn't totally a bad thing), he provides insight to how you can enhance your person and still have that edge that makes you a manly man. If you're a cigar lover, there's something for you. If you're a globetrotter, there's something for you. For a man who feels they have all the tools, there's still something for you; if nothing else, just to know there is someone who has insight, and can approach a situation differently can serve as another tool to add to your arsenal.
Honestly, this is something I recommend for middle-school boys, high school kids, college men, post-college men, old-school men, fathers; basically, any kind of man there is. It will not only enhance the lives of others around you, it will, most importantly, enhance the life of the person who directly is taking it in. The author's editor also did a solid job and should be commended; for some people, editing isn't a big deal, but with a book of this nature, which can be seen as self-help, motivational, character-building, etc; it helps that the author had a person (or people) to make sure the content flowed smoothly. This is a book I wholeheartedly endorse, and encourage others to pick up, and take in, in its entirety.

This book is a heavyweight piece of literature that I will be sharing with my best dudes this year as gifts.
GENTLEMEN - please treat yourself to some good reading and knowledge from someone who relates to (and speaks to) US. A great table read amongst men mature & young.
LADIES - A great present for your husband, mate, brother, friend. Also a great way read from a man who exemplifies class. There are many of us out here, allow us to find you and show you the ways of the..."Bereolaesque"
