"The book’s explicitness regarding behind-closed-doors behaviors clearly marks this as a read geared most to open-minded young men. They will find a wealth of solid advice that is variously sophisticated, amusing and entertaining."

Synopsis

Manly Manners: Lifestyle & Modern Etiquette for the Young Man of the 21st Century is the first volume of a three-volume treatise on modern men’s manners by fashion designer, lawyer, former senator Wayne James. Elegant, sophisticated, and immensely informative—yet edgy, sexy, witty, and even irreverent at times—the trilogy is poised to become the definitive lifestyle guide for the modern man.

Is there a difference in the way one holds a glass of red wine versus a glass of white? How should a young man conduct himself in a gay sauna? What are the rules for “Shopping While Ethnic”? Ever heard of a tabarro? How does a gentleman correctly wear one? What should a young man do (and not do) if detained by law enforcement officers? And what’s the best way to survive prison—unraped? How should a gentleman comport himself when invited to coffee in Ethiopia or a funeral in Japan? Is there “gloryhole etiquette”? Who enters a revolving door first: The man or the woman? What about when entering and exiting restaurants? How should transgender people conduct themselves in gender-specific public restrooms? Ladies are taught how to sit, stand, and walk correctly. But what’s the comportment for their male counterparts? Is there a way to politely suggest an enema to a sex-partner before engaging in anal sex? And what are the new and emerging rules for planning a same-sex wedding? How should a corn-fed, red-blooded, young man apologize to his tellak for getting a raging erection while being massaged on the göbektasi? Roll over and play dead? When conducting business in China or in the Arab World, what are the faux pas that can kill a multi-million-dollar deal? Is there a difference between a blazer and a sport coat? And what’s the history of penny loafers or men’s underwear?

Such topics, and many more—some as mundane as how to correctly use a bidet, others as arcane as how to conduct oneself during an Audience with the pope—are addressed in the more than 800 pages of Manly Manners: Lifestyle & Modern Etiquette for the Young Man of the 21st Century. Manners is a man’s job; and Manly Manners is the new manual.
