I bought three copies of this book. One for me and one for each of my step sons.It is full of information they need for survival in the real world: How to sew on a button. How to tie a tie. What to wear for any occasion. And of course, the best knot you need to know how to tie. This book now shares a prominent place on my bookshelf. Jay
Purchased this as a stocking stuffer on December 13. Checking and checking only to see that it was not shipped till the evening of December 23. It is Christmas even and it just departed from New Jersey. Obviously will not make it for Christmas. Very poor service.
This would make a good Bar Mitzvah gift or a gift for graduation from junior high or even high school or college Unfortunately I got it for a man who is old enough to have acquired this knowledge. It's kind of a fun little book in appearance and the right aged male would appreciate it. And there are so many adoring relatives that would love to give a young man the instructions for knowing what to do in a variety of different occasions. Its a good choice for a man on the brink of formally entering society.
I ordered this as a gag gift for a male friend....it wasn't appropriate....I'm holding it to give to a nephew when he hits middle school age....it's an etiquette book for men...not that most don't need it, but other than giving it to a child a few years away from coming of age, it would certainly be an insult....of course, under those circumstances, it might be funny...
The book had a lot of ' STUFF ' that I already knew. But there were some things that were surprising. I purchased the book because it was published in Philadelphia, by Quirk Books. Since that is my name, I knew I had to buy this book. I am glad that I did. I've already looked into buying several more editions by Quirk Books.Thank You.
I bought this book for my brother-in-law. My sister just passed away and did everything for him. I thought this book would be a big help to him. Perusing the book quickly, I read a lot of good helpful hints and messages. I'm sure he will enjoy this book and not have to feel foolish about someone telling him things he didn't know, but should.
