Having presented the definitive portrait of the enlightened male in THE MODERN GENTLEMAN, Phineas Mollod and Jason Tesauro explore affairs of the heart (and temptations of the loins) in this rollicking sequel. The authors begin by charting the life of the evolved bachelor, offering sage advice on such topics as “One-Night Stands,” “Demystifying the Flogger,” and “Webslinging” (dating online). Mollod and Tesauro next contemplate the transitional man's path from the “Me Cycle” to the “We Cycle.” Whether you are trying to convince close friends of the charms of your new love or testing the long arm of puritanical parents by “Living in Sin,” Mollod and Tesauro have a stiff drink and cool counsel at the ready. And for those modern bachelors who are getting hitched, the authors have copious advice on staging an unorthodox wedding with class, managing the financial merger, stoking the bedroom coals, and embarking on “Daddy Detox.” Packed with sharp wit and insightful commentary, THE MODERN LOVER is the definitive guide for guys negotiating the road from bachelor pad to bedroom fads to brand-new dad.This sequel to THE MODERN GENTLEMAN (40,000 copies sold) offers essential advice and instills savoir faire for avowed bachelors (rounding out the sexual resume; test-driving toys and tolerances), serial monogamists (balancing provocative friendships with at-home loyalties; avoiding the dreaded state of “P-Whipped”), and husbands-to-be (managing in-laws and outlaws; minding “Lights & Darks”).Mollod and Tesauro are monthly manners columnists for Men's Health magazine. Authors Mollod and Tesauro have championed manners “makeovers” on CNN and The Montel Williams Show.
