The title says it all! How to Live Like a Gentlemen is a book created to teach men to behave the right way in every social situation. This book offers advice on life, manners, and style Including what to wear, what to say, and how to act.

Book is helpful Research from scholarly source supports opinions in book Book can be beneficial to men that want to tidy up their act For future books: Focus less on personal experience, and more on data found by scholarly sources. This author failed to collect data, collecting data can make future self help books even better, especially regarding the way men should act in relationships. Lack of self-help books directed toward men makes this subject a good one and a potential gold mine.
