内容紹介

The authoritative guide to being a man in the 21st century is here, at last. * Ever wondered which is the right way to walk with an umbrella? * Ever questioned just exactly what differentiates the types of beer or where all the single malt whiskies come from? * Ever wanted to work out without actually having to go to the gym, and fancied doing it James Bond style? * Ever considered how a batiste shirt differs from a broadcloth one? If you have, you're in luck. The answers to every question you have ever needed to ask are within these pages, from how to strut your stuff on the dance floor to how to cook a decent chilli. Designed to help you out of any awkward situation, this book gives you any number of tips and hints for witty repartee down the pub, including why it's better to have an older mistress and the 85 ways to tie a tie. All this and so much more is explained in a systematic and intelligent way, with facts and figures, diagrams and tables. This indispensable guide for all men's rituals and practical habits belongs in every man's back pocket.L IST OF CONTENTS HEALTH: Shaving; Hair Loss; Family Jewels; Public Loos; Staying Awake; Exercising; DRINKING & SMOKING: Bartenders' Bible; Glasses; Beer; Wine; Spirits; Liqueurs; Whisky; Cocktails; Cigarettes; Cigars; Snuff; Pipes; WOMEN: Chivalry; Swalk & Talk; Beauty; First Date; Mistresses; Rings; Marriage; Bondage; DRESS: Shoes; Shirts; Jeans; Suits; Evening Dress; Morning Dress; Ties; Other Neckcloths; Accessories; Second-Hand Clothes; 2007 ALMANACK; Calendar; TOWN: Umbrellas; Nightclubs; Clubs; Shirtmakers; Poker; Darts; Chilli; COUNTRY: Tools; Fire; Knots; Fishing; Field Sports; Scouts; Treehouses; Conkers; SCIENCE & LETTERS: Books; Superlatives; Measurement; Proportion; Signing Off; Texting; Websites; TIME: Properties of 2007; Astronomical Events; Seasons & Terms; Saints' Days; Holy Days; Holidays; National & Bank Holidays; Civil Days; Sports; World Cups.

レビュー

"a fascinating guide to being a man in the 21st century... it will make a wonderful present or simply a great guide to the confusions of modern life." GQ ONLINE "This simple cover, drawing on a more sophisticated and classic look, marks it as a lifestyle guide for the mature metrosexual. From details about spirits, to a comprehensive summary of the life of James Bond, this collection is sure to appeal to men of all tastes." THE BOOKSELLER - Men's Lifestyle, top title Under the headline VIRILE AND PROUD OF IT, the reviewer says her "own in-house uber masculine metrosexual... amid alarming belly laughter... is literally convulsing with admiration... (Thomas Fink) is displeased by this marginalisation of masculinity. He wants gentlemen everywhere to stand up and take note. Ladies should be aware that it makes for an illuminating afternoon when they do." -- NEW STATESMAN, "Bloke facts, rules and tips... stacks of handy, ZOO-Style info: how to start a fire with a Coke can, make cocktails, build a treehouse." Three stars ZOO MAGAZINE "A big celebration of the human male form, spelling out all the stereotypes that make us so unique. A must, if urinal etiquette confuses you." Three stars NUTS MAGAZINE "Every now and then a book comes along that makes you ask yourself: why didn't I think of that...it deserves to sell in truckloads, and it probably will." LITERARY REVIEW

Was this book funded by the tobacco lobby? It actively encourages non-smokers to take up smoking with sections such as 'How to Start Smoking', 'The Advantages of Smoking' and 'Smoking with Confidence'. According to the writer, Thomas Fink, smoking is sexy, manly, popular with women, a social attraction, and children like smokers. After trivialising the known health risks of smoking, Fink goes on to say that smoking is, on balance, advantageous to the smoker. There is no mention of the stinky breath, hands, hair and clothes that are an inevitable characteristic of smokers.

Dated and Pompous, but Smokers Might Like it 2014/8/18
投稿者 John - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版
They might like it because it actively encourages non-smokers to take up smoking through sections such as 'How to Start Smoking', 'The Advantages of Smoking' and 'Smoking with Confidence'. According to the writer, Thomas Fink, smoking is sexy, manly, popular with women, a social attraction, and children like smokers. After trivialising the known health risks of smoking, Fink goes on to say that smoking is, on balance, advantageous to the smoker. Perhaps needless to say, there is no mention of the stinky breath, hands, hair and clothes that are an inevitable characteristic of smokers.
This book is advertised as an indispensable guide for the modern man and Fink appears to believe that smoking is an indispensable habit of the modern man. In 2014...really?
