Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Habe mir das Buch aus Interesse gekauft und wollte einfach mal schauen, was so drin ist.
Habe nicht erwartet das dieses Buch voller ausgezeichneter Tipps, alter Etiquette (Die auf die Neuzeit übertragen wurde) in Gentleman-Manier und vieler witziger Sprücher ist.
Meiner Meinung nach ein MUSS für alle Männer!

Versand lief schnell und ohne Probleme, alles Top!

2 von 3 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von J. Watson am 22. Dezember 2009
Format: Taschenbuch
After reading the many interesting articles on The Art of Manliness website, I decided to give this book a try. I'm very happy with it. It was a good, fun read packed with a lot of useful information. I almost read the whole book in one sitting. The book outlines the many classic manly skills that are considered outdated by today's society and the importance of bringing them back. Not only to treat others and yourself with more respect, but to also rejuvenate and nurture your primitive side.

The book teaches skills that you will wish you had practiced as a teenager. It would have probably made you one of the most popular guys in school, especially with the ladies. That's why it would be a good book to pass down to your 13-year-old sun. It's really a coming of age book and a good reference, if not back to the basics for the rest of us. It also teaches some skills that may literally save your life one day. Ever wonder how to land an airplane if the pilot gets taken out?

I truly recommend this great book to fathers and sons alike. I'm sure that you will be just as satisfied as I was with it!

Für den Preis hätte ich jedoch mehr erwartet. Ansonsten schöne Gestaltung und viele Informationen zur Kunst der Männlichkeit. Informationen sind mit Witz verpackt was das Buch nicht langweilig werden lässt.

What makes a man a man? 9. Februar 2010
Von Michael Cox - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Men don't have many places to turn for solid lifestyle advice. Most men's periodicals and websites offer trendy fitness fads, designer suits or softcore bikini photos with all the lifestyle help of a beer commercial.

And then there's The Art of Manliness. As time goes by I've gained great respect for Brett and Kate McKay and the classic-yet-fresh take on masculinity on their Art of Manliness website. True to form, their first book isn't an e-book sold on Clickbank, it's a paper-and-ink tome fittingly titled The Art of Manliness: Classic Skills and Manners for the Modern Man.

This book delivers on its promise in spades. If you get past the swaggering Victorian dandy on the cover you'll find practical advice that applies here and now, for almost every aspect of a man's life.

Its eight chapters reflect all sides of the total man. "The Gentleman," for example, includes tips and advice on becoming well-groomed and well-mannered, from how to fold a pocket square and iron pants to the "lost art" of wet shaving with a safety razor. If you want to know the difference between the American Man Hug and the International Man Hug, how to land a plane in an emergency or how to braid your daughter's hair, it's in there.

As a bonus, I found Art of Manliness to be a quick, engaging read. Where the AoM site frequently discusses its topics at length, the book is concise and well-structured, quickly laying out the steps to a tip or the case for a concept and then moving on.

Tying these tips and trivia together is the notion that what makes a man a man has never changed -- it just gets lost in the noise. A well-put-together guy still has a better shot at the women, fathering is still a manly art, and a man who practices common courtesy as well as his fighting skills still has a leg up on both the meathead and the mouse. Many of the references here are from a "golden age" of manliness that may or may not be a tad idealized, but the information is solid.

Most of this book is just plain common sense, and you'll find yourself nodding in agreement with advice like "Stop Hanging Around with Women and Start Dating Them" and "Give and Accept Criticism Without Coming Off as a Cad." That's not to say there aren't some concepts that might make you think twice: reading the McKays' advice on "Modern Technology and the New Rules of Etiquette," you might realize you've been using your cell and e-mail less like a man and more like a cross between a 14-year-old girl and Unfrozen Caveman Computer Nerd. (Yes, it IS possible to use actual grammar in an e-mail message!)

Reading deeper, another key concept surfaces: one change we suffer in the modern world is that the brotherhood of men has become less of a brotherhood and more like a loose circle of disposable acquaintances. And that, son, makes you disposable too. How many of us under the age of 50 (hell, 65) have thought of joining a fraternal organization? And how often have you planned a vacation with your buddies that involved gathering firewood or catching your own dinner? I think the McKays nailed it on the head: there's an underlying homophobia that keeps us leery of true male friendships, and a modern detachment that keeps us closed off from (or worse, antagonistic toward) our communities.

Rant over. The point is, you WILL learn something from The Art of Manliness, and you WILL come away a better man no matter where you come from. The first print run completely sold out before Christmas, but the second printing is finally available, so make haste before it's gone too.

A mixed bag 14. Juni 2011
Von Regular Joe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I love the concept behind this book and ordered a copy hoping I could share it with my son. Sadly after reading it cover to cover, I'll be sending my copy to the resale shop.

The authors spent a significant amount of time examining some of the great men in history (a good place to start) but couldn't seem to apply what they learned to the modern male. For example, they correctly identified the art of self defense as an area worthy of study but then chose "Bartitsu", a style of self defense that died out almost 100 years ago, as what a modern man should become proficient in. A quick Google search shows there isn't a "Bartitsu" school within 200 miles of me and I'm pretty sure the 10 pages devoted to "Bartitsu" moves won't be enough to teach you anything useful.

There is some useful discussion on respect, honesty, integrity, reliability mixed in with some everyday skills everyone should know, like how to change a tire and jump start a car. Then they teach you how to find North/South/East/West with a stick and your analog watch but not how to read a map to figure out where you are and how to get where you're going. It's not like they ran out of room, because there's sections in the book on how to land an airplane and treat a snake bite.

Bottom line, there seems to be a lot of random "skills" like the fireman's carry and making fire without matches mixed with advice on how to be a man of character that never really gel. It was a good idea, just poorly executed.

Required reading. 22. Oktober 2009
Von James! - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
So far my favourite chapters have been, Chapter One: The Gentleman, which is chock full of the basic stuff that your father should've taught you but serves as a good refresher course, or a solid foundation to build on. Chapter Four: The Lover, I am pretty tight with the chivalry stuff but it was a cool read especially the segments pertaining to marriage, I was hoping this chapter was Kate approved to help me get inside of the female mind and not let anything unimportant slip through. By far my favourite chapter was, Chapter Five: The Father, of course because I am a father and I especially appreciated the segment "Raise Resilient Kids, it reaffirmed many things I already practice in raising my daughter which is good because some of those things can be scary such as "2. Let Them Do Unsafe Things". Plus I was amused at the "Teach Your Kid To Ride A Bike" segment in particularly the old dirty trick of "..let go of the bike's seat. To avoid a possible freak-out and ensuing spill, don't tell him you're letting go." The last two chapters "The Leader" and "The Virtuous Man" could be combined with chapter one as required reading for every young man. The humor peppered into the segments is a nice touch and keeps the writing down to earth and kept the pages turning. The glossary in the back is a nice "The Clockwork Orange" touch, and I know if I adopt too much of it I will sound like I stepped out of a movie (although I do naturally use a few of those). I now count "square-rigged" the newest edition to my vocabulary.

It definately sets itself apart from any self-help, lifestyle, fashion, philosophy type of books by means of the honesty of its we-give-a-damn tone that it strikes. A great book for perpetuating the endangered art of manliness.

A Must Read 8. Oktober 2009
Von Jerrick Irby - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Simply put, The Art of Manliness is a must read.

Finally, a men's book that isn't focused on "12 easy steps to getting ripped," or "10 secrets to hooking up with your coworker." If that is what you are looking for then The Art of Manliness is not for you. (Actually, it is probably more of a must read for you than you realize, but I digress).

The Art of Manliness is a witty, well-written collection of topics that are pertinent to true men. Topics your grandfather and father should have taught you. With today's limited quality of options related to men's literature, The Art of Manliness is a welcome change.

Go ahead - make the purchase. You'll be glad you did.

A contemporary guide to being a gentleman 22. Januar 2010
Von George P. Moseley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I grew up in a household where etiquette was highly valued. I wish this book had been around when I was younger. The McKays do a great job in bringing back this lost art. It has inspired me in different ways to become more of a gentleman. I intend to buy this book for all the high school seniors in my church youth group as a graduation present. The skills they will learn can make real difference in their future at home, at work, and at play. Be sure to go to their website at [...] as well as listen to their podcasts on iTunes.
