The Modern Man’s Guide to Good Form
Waggoner and Moloney
Guys, are you frustrated by etiquette rules? Do you need to look suave for the ladies? This is your guide. This book organizes a bunch of topics into easy to digest 1 or 2 pages of advice.
The advice is pretty decent, but extremely basic. It has all the etiquette standards: thank you notes, introductions, table manners, etc. There is also advice about dating, tipping, picking up the check and even gambling. Although there is some discussion of chores, it really is more about making something look clean. The other part of the advice is to get a cleaning lady.
However, 1987 publication date tells us that there isn’t going be decent advice for the Internet age. Sadly, this is one area that all of us could use some etiquette rules or instructions on decent behavior. It’s now 2020 and I think we could do with complete overhaul on issues of acceptable behavior.
