Both genuinely informative and very amusing, The English Gentleman offers the parvenu a window onto the world of the genuine article. It describes his habits: where he might live, what he might wear, his school, his clubs, his hobbies and sports, his family and relationships, his mode of speech, and the acceptable way to behave in almost any given situation (invariably the very opposite of what the outsider might think). Not to mention advice on the correct attitude toward money (it s vulgar), sex (it s vulgar), and business (it s vulgar unless, of course, it s run at a heavy loss).

A hilarious initiation into the eccentric world of the stiff upper lip.
