Overview

This witty and honest guide to love, clothes, career, health, and living is essential for anyone with a Y chromosome. THE GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LIFE answers all of the questions that guys have always wondered about (and some that they haven't) including: If ignorance is bliss, how come I'm not kicking up my heels?, How do I ask for a raise (and avoid getting fired)?, Why is a man never satisfied?, Are you a hypochondriac, or is it all in your head?

Author Steve Friedman covers the Bottom Line, Indispensable Items, and Common Questions of topics that concern (or should concern) men the most. Trying to find the perfect blazer? Look for a classic two-button blazer made with lightweight wool. Confused about fiber intake? Double it. Unsure about what to do when you're meeting her parents? Try talking about Dad's favorite sports team; always ask for seconds. Also included is the prostate primer, a concise account of that tricky little organ and some of the changes that it goes through.

From throwing a dinner party, skincare, and lessons on abstract art to exercise tips and explaining the health benefits of marriage, THE GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LIFE is the indispensable manual for men. Open this book and release the latent gentleman (yes, he exists) within you.
