KIRKUS REVIEW

This is more than just a propriety manual for its emphasis is on human relationships and the understanding of, accepting and adapting to personality differences which makes it valuable as a behavior blueprint. Arcas covered for male modes of conduct are: speech (voice, vocabulary, conversation), correspondence, dating, table manners, dress (regular and sports), business, driving, engagement and wedding, and prejudice patterns of race, color and creed. The briefing on commonsense values is a working model for the avoidance of gaucheries and precedes the business of etiquette so that putting a best foot forward may be accomplished less awkwardly and the appearance of artificiality averted. He-man's language throughout might have its persuasion for the reluctant and Robert Yahn's black and whites guy the guys. Younger brothers might take a look.
