Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book should be required reading for every 13 yr old boy in school. You can't expect people to have manners if they haven't been taught what they are.
This is a well-written & entertaining read, perfect for any man who wants to be well-mannered but doesn't really know where to begin. We've all had to start somewhere, & this book is a great place to start. That said, I do not think this is the book for the man looking to take his already extant etiquette to the next level. As the title says, this is merely the "ESSENTIAL Manners for Men". It is more about the attitude of respect for others & thinking about one's actions than "place the fork here"-type etiquette rules (although there are a few basic ones, such as that example). If one was raised in a well-mannered home &/or read other good books &/or blogs on manhood & manners, one will probably already know ~90% of what this book has to teach. Still, I'd get it for a friend or family member who needs AND wants something of the kind.
