Must have for all guys.

If you are clueless about etiquette, among other things, then this is the book for you. There is a plethora of information that I was clueless about. It's a good one to have around to refer back to occassinally, too.

Recommend it.

I would recommend this book for all young men. It could be the revival of "manliness".

    A must read for Men

    I admire McKay in again reminding men that there is a 'art' to manliness. I would recommend this book to any guy who knows that there is more to being a man than testosterone. As a lady I enjoyed the book as a reminder there are still me out there who are striving to be 'Gentlemen"!

    An Important Read

    After reading this book, do I feel confident that I could safely land an airliner if the pilot had a heart attack mid-flight? Probably not.Do I even care enough about shaving to turn it into a time-consuming ritual? I guess not. Can I aspire to be a man of style, well mannered, straight-shooting and eloquent, robust of physique and character, equally fluent and comfortable in bar and ballroom? You bet. Thanks Brett and Kate!
