More About How to Be a Gentleman by John Bridges; Kirby Heyborne
 
 
 
Overview

Nearly every man wants to be a gentleman. He may not know exactly what that means, but his true desire is to be respected and admired in the way only a gentleman can be. He wants to be prepared and confident, certain that his judgment is shrewd and his behavior appropriate. A gentleman considers the weight of his words and the impression he is leaving. He knows when to ignore his iPhone in favor of a face-to-face conversation, and he understands that sometimes he should simply say nothing at all. He knows what to do with his sport jacket at the end of the day, and what color shoes he should never wear to a funeral. Snapping at a telemarketer calling from some far-flung place? A gentleman realizes that s no way to communicate with anyone. He knows the difference between I m sorry and Excuse me, and he doesn t use them interchangeably. Being a gentleman is timeless; these are ideals that will never be obliterated by technology, the latest social ideology, or protests from men who are content to do less.

Bridges, coauthor of the bestselling GentleManners series, provides a revised list of tips on how to be effortlessly polite and well mannered in a modern world. This revised edition features new advice on subjects as diverse as instant message communications and proper behavior at a funeral. Some tips are entirely practical, while others strain credulity and skirt the precipice of irony, e.g., “As he grows older, a gentleman invests in a battery-operated hair trimmer so that he does not have to subject himself to the pain of plucking his nose hairs, much less his ear hairs, by means of a pair of tweezers.” Kirby Heyborne’s narration is clear, well paced, and contains an appropriate degree of authority and assurance. And it’s a credit to his skill that Heyborne is able to infuse what amounts to a lengthy list of advice with the vocal variety requisite to maintain listener interest. A Thomas Nelson hardcover.
