Review

“Peculiar, brilliant, funny, smart, and it will turn you into a cool person, like CNN’s Anderson Cooper and me.” 
—Augusten Burroughs, Entertainment Weekly

About the Author

Phineas Mollod uses his Vanderbilt law degree to counsel his wayward pals in divorces and landlord-tenant imbroglios and write about technology law in New York City. 
 
Jason Tesauro forewent law school for a mastery of wine, spirits, style, and sustainable food. You’ll find him swinging a croquet mallet in Richmond, Virginia, or wielding a champagne saber as he conducts the Modern Gentleman Seminar Series and other events of consequence around the world.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected Dec 13 2011
Format:Paperback
I had the idea this book might be an interesting, amusing read from which I could actually benefit. As it turned out, this was not the case.

I found the book extremely superficial, and providing the same quality of advice: how to create a veneer of sophistication, no more. The title, it seems, is disturbingly apt; in modern society, with its hype and glitter, the 'modern' gentleman is apparently nothing more than a convenient mask one wears to appear classy and garner approbation.

Nowhere in the book, however, is there discussion on what it means to actually BE classy. For example, rather than noting that true gentlemen do not have affairs on their wives, it emphasizes the need for discretion and the fact that if one is caught, it's not really defensible.

Needless to say, an indepth read became a casual perusal became a skim became the book going in the recycling. I not only wish I could get my money back, but the time I spent looking at it.

Milage may vary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than first edition May 16 2011
By White Knight Productions - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the wittiest, funniest, savviest collection of observations on how to be an effective male in the twentieth first century you can find. Don't confuse this vast smorgasbord of essays on everything from wine, dating, music choice, sex, in-laws, kink, and clothes with the kind of pseudo-cool yet actually uptight advice you'd find in GQ or similar post-frat boy rags. Practical and highly amusing at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every man should own this book June 4 2011
By NickJamesZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I reference this book as much as the bible. It has become my second bible. I take it everywhere I go right in my napsack, in my car and whenever boarding a plane. Imagine all of the witty advice columns you've read in Playboy, Maxim, GQ, Mens Health, etc. and you have the MG series in one tidy and handsome package. Read it, soak it in and live like a gentleman. And if nothing else it is an excellent conversation starter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read Oct. 17 2013
By S. H. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book touches on a lot of things, some I feel might have become extinct long before today's time but it is still nice to see how a gentleman should conduct himself. Even if the situations are from another time, seeing how to behave can still be used to construct a better understanding for oneself and thus improvement.

Call me closed minded but I had to pull a star for the part about homosexuality, sorry but I felt it was just thrown in there at the end of the chapter as to try and say "hey gay readers we have something for you too".

4.0 out of 5 stars Tips to become the man people look up to Nov. 6 2013
By WellSeeYaLater - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Overall, there were some useful tips and guides. Some of the tips kind of jump around a bit, and the focus was more on single guys. I need one of these books for a married man. I would buy it again.

Light-hearted but true seeds of wisdom abound in the pages of this book. I read the first edition and can honestly say it impacted my journey through my 20s. I think every guy could gain a little guidance by checking this one out.
