The Art of Manliness: Classic Skills and Manners for the Modern ManThe Art of Manliness: Classic Skills and Manners for the Modern Man by Brett McKay

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Quaint idea…at once mawkish, pretentious, humorous, pseudo-proper…the discerning reader needs to filter the foppish silliness for the sagacity that is secreted within the product of two very full of themselves writers.

Rephrasing: there actually are good concepts hidden among the authors’ perceptions/notions of “manliness”…and there is a lot of affectation, whether innocently conveyed or deliberately crafted I neither know or care to find out. Pick from the parts that make sense. And try to keep the condescending smile to yourself…

(This is a quick read if you have any cosmopolitan sense at all…)
