American men have forgotten how to be gentlemen! They don't know a thing about etiquette and have no manners! So here to the rescue is Henry, an effortlessly refined English gentleman with a wry sense of humor, exceptionally good taste, impeccable manners, and an unerring knack for doing the right thing, at the right time, in the right way, while wearing just the right color socks.
In The Quintessential Gentleman, Henry applies the timeless rules of proper behavior to 21st-century social situations for a modern guide on what to do, what to wear, what to say and just how to say it. Despite today's confusing demands of political correctness and shifting social mores, Henry smoothly guides readers away from embarrassing faux pas and shows them how to gain the charming self-assurance that comes from having the style of James Bond, not Austin Powers.
