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
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.
