Essential Manners for Men

While anonymous internet tough guys may be good at things like writing “FIRST!” on message boards, they’re bloody awful at the things that count in life, like manners. So for that, we say you check out Peter Post, the great-grandson of legendary writer Emily Post, and his Essential Manners for Men: 2nd Edition ($12), a revised take on etiquette, good manners, and decorum. Page through chapters like “How to Stealth Fart in Bed” and “How Long Should You Save Your Toenails?” and you’ll instantly be a better man. OK, so those issues might not be addressed in the book, but we can always hope they’ll  make it to the 3rd edition.
