Publisher's Description

Being a gentleman isn’t just being a nice guy, or a considerate guy, or the type of guy someone might take home to meet their mother. A gentleman realizes that he has the unique opportunity to distinguish himself from the rest of the crowd. He knows when an email is appropriate, and when nothing less than a handwritten note will do. He knows how to dress on the golf course, in church, and at a party. He knows how to breeze through an airport without the slightest fumble of his carry-on or boarding pass. And those conversational icebreakers—“Where do I know you from?” A gentleman knows better. Gentlemanliness is all in the details, and John Bridges is reclaiming the idea that men—gentlemen—can be extraordinary in every facet of their lives.

Author Bio

John Bridges, author of How to Be a Gentleman, is also the coauthor, with Bryan Curtis, of seven other volumes in the best-selling GentleManners series. He is a frequent guest on television and radio news programs, always championing gentlemanly behavior in modern society.

    How to be a Gentleman is a collection of pithy sayings and general advice on a variety of topics that is sure to make you smirk and wince as you remember seeing yourself and others in similar situations wondering just how they should be handled. The book is an easy read and contains a topical index for easy reference when you're trying to remember how to calculate a tip or how to introduce an older gentleman to a younger lady.

    The basic premise is that being a gentleman is more than just an endless list of dos and don'ts; it concerns the practical mechanics of being considerate, tactful and modest with the utmost efficiency and effectiveness in daily life. While most of us may never need to tie a bow tie or know how to greet the Queen of England, unless you live under a rock, you will likely receive a wedding invitation or entertain weekend guests at some point. And, while you may disagree with some of the advice (e.g., offering up a white lie to avoid a socially awkward situation), it will force you think about alternatives or at least give you fair warning as to how others may view you if you stray from the commonly accepted rules of society (e.g., being expected to wear a yarmulke at a synagogue even if you're not Jewish).

    Avoiding undue offense is a Christian virtue, and Bridges offers up a wide selection of proverbial advice to cover many common situations. If there is any drawback to the book, it would be that it is written more for polished business types and not specifically from a Christian worldview; this is a book of social graces for professionals who might actually wear white tie and tails from time to time, but it certainly doesn't hurt to be exposed to such information. You never know where life may take you.
