Esquire's What Every Young Man Should Know
Esquire's What Every Young Man Should Know Author:The Editors of Esquire Magazine, Scotty Welch, Arnold Gingrich An unconventional guide for the perceptive young man by the editors of Esquire Magazine with Scotty Welch. About: Himself, women, careers, courtship, manners, dining, college, liquor, the draft, clothes, money, fun and games. — Young men may act more sophisticated these days but they still have to learn the Facts of Life in the same way as every ... more »previous generation -- one by one. This book tells them, with candor and humor, what they should know about manners, women, liquor, the draft, their health, clothes, dining -- and the literally scores of other subjects.
Luxurious in format, illustrated with more than a hundred cartoons, studded with names like Paul Gallico, Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., Dr. Theodor Reik, Secretary of the Interior Stewart Udall and Jack Kerouac, this book is greater than the sum of all its parts. For here presented in print, for the first time, is not only the heart of the matter of being young gracefully, but the spirit as well.
No volume could look -- or act -- less like a textbook than this one. And yet, entertaining and unorthodox as it is, that is precisely what you hold in your hands -- a textbook on the most difficult art in the world, the art of being a man.
WHAT EVERY YOUNG MAN SHOULD KNOW is divided into three books:
I. WHO YOU? What Every Young Man Should Know about Himself
II. WHO SHE? What Every Young Man Should Know about Women
III. WHO THEY? What Every Young Man Should Know about the Outside World
These three books, each complete in itself, are followed by a ``DIVIDEND'' of miscellaneous pertinent and impertinent information.
The following are just a few of the subjects that will be encountered in this lively and lavish volume:
