Editorial Reviews

If the word "metrosexual" makes you vaguely uncomfortable and you savor thoughts of hard liquor, good cigars, and weekends at Vegas, this is the book for you. Tough-guy actor Frank Vincent (The Sopranos; Goodfellas; Raging Bull) knows that you don't become a man's man by bullying the shrimps; you become one by dressing like a champ and taking on the world. His Guy's Guide to Being a Man's Man contains all you will need to become a tough, smart, confident, charming, classy, all-around good fella.

I found this book gave good starter information on the finer etiquette manners I mentioned in my headline and then some. My advice is not to follow the book word for word. The advice Mr. Frank Vincent provides is definitely from his lifestyle. However, he presents great basics for any man¿s man. Since I am a married cigar aficionado, I did not receive much from the dating and cigar section. However, I learned a lot from Frank Vincent¿s advice on recommended dining locations and style. For example, Frank Vincent¿s advice on wearing a tuxedo is ditching the bow tie and going with a regular tie. Otherwise, you may be mistaken for a server or host. The best advice was at the end of the book in the epilogue. Not to give anything away, but definitely read that section first, it is only a few pages. Then read it again once you are done with the book.
