The path to being a gentleman is filled with obstacles: not only does one have to look the part, but one also has to act the part as well. In today's modern world, where common courtesies are often eschewed in favour of gruff, loutish behaviour, it's more important than ever to remember the famous adage by William of Wykeham: 'Manners maketh man.' Robert O'Byrne teaches the aspiring gentleman how to handle any occasion, whether it be a social engagement or something more formal, allowing him to present a sophisticated well-behaved front to anyone he may encounter. Say, for example, you are looking for love, once the chapter on how to treat a lady has been digested you will have potential companions swooning with your charming ways. And once you've found a suitable partner, perhaps you dread the first meeting with her parents? Well fear not, the tips on small talk will have you asking all the right questions and have the in-laws welcoming you into the family with open arms. Or maybe you're worried about how you come across when dealing with important clients at work? Tips on emails, phone manner, leading meetings, and more will ensure you are held in the highest regard.
