A must have for any aspiring gentleman

This book is a wonderful resource on the much neglected side of the ideal gentleman, the "Gentlemanly Virtues" Without virtue, etiquette and politeness is just empty form. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to any aspiring gentleman.....

Made me proud to be a man. It been along time since someone said you should proud to be man and being a man can be a noble thing if we work at it.

Great book scarred by terrible narration

I loved this book as much as I possibly could considering the narration.

Not that the narrator sounds terrible, which he does, but also that, due to the style of the book, while listening, you cannot decipher if it is the actual writer "speaking" or a quote or reading from one of the philosophers of great writers.

Makes for a difficult follow.
Sadly, this hurt the overall experience.
Content was excellent though.

Best advice in the last 3000 years.

Man-up son.
Only the hard, only the strong. But these were no knuckle dragging brutes.
Every quote a nugget. Every man a diamond.

Solid book

History is important and learning through stories is the most efficient way to remember lessons and advice. This book covers several important masculine qualities. They should make a book on the other manly qualities to complete the series.

Good points put forward

They were done so with excerpts from famous books. However there are some points that I did not see how they quite fit.

Man Up!

A little hard to listen to if you are more the type to read books for entertainment but the values and principles covered in this book are priceless and should be more widely understood and practiced. I definitely recommend this to all men!

Simply one of the best books ever

Perfect narrator, my favourite ever. Brilliant book, inspirational and covers all the important stuff - and also dips it's toe into many different philosophies that I have found the most useful and virtuous in life. Epic poems, stories, letters, songs, excerpts... Its all here. This book is essentially now my bible and I've listened many times over to reinforce the ideals within
