Bridges, coauthor of the bestselling GentleManners series, provides a revised list of tips on how to be effortlessly polite and well mannered in a modern world. This revised edition features new advice on subjects as diverse as instant message communications and proper behavior at a funeral. Some tips are entirely practical, while others strain credulity and skirt the precipice of irony, e.g., "As he grows older, a gentleman invests in a battery-operated hair trimmer so that he does not have to subject himself to the pain of plucking his nose hairs, much less his ear hairs, by means of a pair of tweezers." Kirby Heyborne's narration is clear, well paced, and contains an appropriate degree of authority and assurance. And it's a credit to his skill that Heyborne is able to infuse what amounts to a lengthy list of advice with the vocal variety requisite to maintain listener interest. A Thomas Nelson hardcover.
