    1. Great little book with pragmatic advice to verbally jiu jitsu your way through some awkward moments in life a gentleman does not interrupt ever a gentleman is slow to judge others say congratulations to groom, say best wishes to bride a gentleman dies not raise his voice a gentleman never says sorry unless he has given offense don t fluff around w I don t mean to embarrass you but don t ask someone s age if you call someone it is up to you to finish convo don t answer phone at table or in front [...]




    2. This book is a really great book for anyone who is too rough on the edges and needs some polishing in social situations


    3. Pretty much just tells you how to give neutral, non opinionated statements on potentially sensitive subjects It could be called how to make people like me by not causing waves But in all seriousness, it does provide some good advice by suggesting to you not to comment on things that are rightfully not your business or prerogative It thus does provide helpful commentary on how to avoid accidental rudeness and articulates what may be considered rude to some is not what it is to others so its just [...]


    4. As a gentleman would say is an extremely brief look at guidelines surrounding what gentlemen ought to say in specific awkward social situations A fair percentage is rehashed from previous work in the Gentlemanners series, and what is provided often turns out to be many variations on the same response that cover eight or ten scenarios.In all, this book could probably have been summed up in fifteen pages You d likely do better to pick up How to be a Gentleman.


    5. A fun read Not all of it is applicable in our day, but most of it is The world can always use gentlemen This is a fun coffee table read to clue men in on how to avoid the awkward and offensive moments we can be prone to invite.


    6. I bought this book as a gift for a male friend at a used bookstore and read it in a half an hour It was very cute and helpful, especially if you ever happen to yell out the wrong name in bed I didn t think that was a gaff someone could recover from, but I was wrong


    7. I thought this book had a lot of good advice on how to deal with difficult situations and general manners in speaking and conversing I enjoyed it However, I found much of the advice to be common sense.


    8. Solid book outlines the Platonic view of etiquette I m not sure any man, no matter how gentlemanly, could ever act as laid out here, however.


    9. Oh What a beautiful read I especially enjoyed the practical approach in describing the various life situations Now I m scouting for other titles in the series.



    10. Amazing book for me to learn what to say in awkward situations I learned better manners and re read it outloud to the boys and discussed every item Everybody should read this book.





    11. Very similar to the other book in this series I don t feel like writing the same review twice so I ll leave it at that.
