Manners, please -
This was a stocking stuffer for my son to share with his twin two year old boys in the future. Although the advice was for a younger audience, I'm sure my son will benefit from a "refresher course" himself. I knew it would be too advanced for the toddlers but it is an attractive book that appears to be able to stand the test of time.
"50 Things Every Young Gentleman Should Know" -
By: Reedy from S.C.
The book advises the 21st century youths in the proper protocol for meeting social situations. From "thank you" to personal hygiene to the internet, the reader can easily learn the right way to act and react in daily life. Straight forward, reasonable documentation is given in the "Do's" and "Don'ts" paragraphs. Young guys will respond positively to the suggestions, a real help to Mom and Dad.
Great concept -

This is the perfect subtle yet not so subtle way to drop a hint to the self involved young adult in your life!

Humorous and Profound -
By: fleurducap from Eastham, MA
"50 Things Every Young Gentleman Should Know" is a delightful exposition on proper behavior and its implications for any young man (or woman for that matter) in our society. I recommend it both for its accessibility and its basis grounded in respect for and recognition of universal dignity for all.
Good idea. Stuffy execution. -
By: PickyPolly from Croton-on-Hudson, N.Y.
I bought this for my 13-year old grandson, and I'm afraid he'll find it a bit condescending. Perhaps it might be more successful for a younger boy. Also, the Introduction falls a bit short, in my view. I do not want the boy to have good manners "so that (he) will be a young man who gets into good schools and gets a good job.." but rather so that he will be at ease in the company of his peers and the adults around him, enjoy and respect their friendships, and recognize his responsibilities towards his fellow man. I've decided to give the book to his mother and let her decide its appropriateness. .
Good gift -
This book is a good price point for a gift. We have given it to 2 couples who just had little boys

This book should be used in high schools to teach our kids good manners etc.
Great Book -

I gave this book to the son of my best friend who is 12. Before giving it to him I read the book myself and was thoroughly impressed. I would give as a gift to another young man in a heart beat. On another note I was sorry to see you discontinue your book How to be a Lady. 5E01-0000. When my daughters graduated from high school I gave every one of their friends a copy of the book. I still have 3 left but need more. Bring it back!
