This book contains a wealth of information that ranges from survival skills to social skills to advice on how to improve your character. Whether you are braving the wilds with your friends, courting your girlfriend or raising a family, inside you'll find practical information and inspiration for every area of life. You'll learn the basics all modern men should know, including how to:
Shave like your grandpa
Be a perfect houseguest
Fight like a gentleman using the art of bartitsu
Help a friend with a problem
Give a man hug
Perform a fireman's carry
Ask for a woman’s hand in marriage

An excellent resource for gentlemen

An excellent book and a great resource for a dying breed, the gentleman. I highly recommend this book as well as the sequel, "Manvotionals"

Not much use as an audiobook

Trying to picture how to tie different styles of knots is a futile exercise - a companion PDF would have made all the difference in the world.
