Filled with accessible sidebars, tips, and stories from Peter's own experiences, "Essential Manners for Men" is quick, sharp, and sensible, with all new material including: Social Media: social networking, gaming, and the world of online dating; Communication: both in person - greetings, handshakes, and the all-important first impression - and on-the go-texting, emailing, and smart phones; Life Changes: dealing with bumps in the road, from divorce to layoffs; Weddings: the man's role in a wedding-from groom to best man to usher-and the changing nature of the bachelor party; and, Entertaining, dining, tipping and much more. "Essential Manners for Men" gives men the confidence they need to excel in their personal, social and business lives, and the know-how to navigate even the most difficult situations.
