Publisher's Summary

If you have ever felt unsure or uncomfortable when facing a social dilemma, John Bridges answers these questions and more in his classic handbook for men.

The rules were simpler in bygone days, but technological changes have caused seismic shifts to the cultural landscape of 21st century. Do the rules of common courtesy still apply?

Social media and smartphones have shaped communication in unprecedented ways, and increased connection has created a global melting pot. Social norms that were once understood now feel uncertain. How should a sophisticated man conduct himself in the diverse environments he may encounter? How to Be a Gentleman is an indispensable guide for men of all ages who aspire to become gentlemen, including tips and guidelines such as:

  • How to respond to those with whom you disagree
  • When and where it is appropriate to use your cell phone
  • How to dress for various formal events
  • Rules for conducting yourself at the gym
  • How to engage respectfully with different cultural and religious contexts

It's I was in Sunday school again

This book will bore you out of your mind with archaic ideas of how to treat other people. Very well-meaning but ultimately fails to get to the heart of anything. a shallow listen that even a talented narrator couldn't bring the life. The last 10 minutes is a conversation with the author and I almost vomited listening to him.

Gain empathy dude.. Stop judging other people. You don't know what people are going through. You don't know why they're acting the way they are. Being a gentleman is giving others the benefit of the doubt even when their behavior isn't ideal.

A basic need for good behavioral education

.... but the problem is that in Ch 10, the interview part, I was disappointed by the way that he actually talks.
I am sorry, is not my intention to be mean but I hoped to hear a gentleman speaking, witty words, clear and concise answers.
Overall, the book is a very good start for a gentleman in making.
Thank you.
