A Gentleman’s Guide to Manners, Sex, and Ruling the World

How to Survive as a Man in the Age of Misandry– and Do So with Grace


About this item

What is a gentleman, and why should every man aspire to be one? Does the ideal still have any value in the age of feminism, "toxic masculinity," and "men going their own way"? Traditional books on manners and gentlemanly behavior have always claimed that manhood is defined by certain universal principles. But these norms have now changed so radically that the standard advice, tried and true as much of it remains, requires new formulation to be useful to the modern man.

Manhood is not something you're born into it: it's something that must be achieved and proven. Dr. Baskerville presents here the frankest guide to manners and morals ever written, offering you a refreshingly honest guidebook on how to become not just a man in the modern world but a gentleman. From his huge reservoir of observations and guidelines, you'll learn:

  • Why any man can, and every man should, be a gentleman
  • Why being a gentleman is not a matter of birth, class, social superiority, or snobbery
  • How the traditional rules can be applied to benefit the modern man - and those around him.
  • Why leadership is essential to being a man and a gentleman
  • How to develop the social graces of polite society without compromising your manhood
  • How a gentleman should honor women without falling into political correctness
  • What subjects are appropriate for conversation - and which ones are not
  • Tips for courtship, marriage, and family life
  • What are the natural roles and responsibilities of fatherhood?
  • Why the ideal of the gentleman is inseparable from the responsibility to rule yourself and others

This Gentleman’s Guide to Manners, Sex and Ruling the World contains both wise and practical advice on relating to women from a man who knows. With his enormous insight, Professor Baskerville is the intellectual heir to Professor Daniel Amneus (RIP) in whatever remains of the legitimate men’s movement ― and beyond.

How to Survive as a Man in the Age of Misandry – and Do So with Grace
This is a serious and thought-provoking book. It sets the scene in a political and social landscape that hinders males from growing up to become responsible men, fathers and community leaders. The worst thing that men can do, to themselves, families, communities and “the world” (reference to title) is surrender their (gentle)manhood. That being established: Now what? I want to try to encapsulate an aspect of the book that I believe makes it worthwhile for all men, not just those seeking advice on a successful move into manhood. Being a gentleman is not a superficial matter of merely practicing proper manners and polite gestures; nor is it an outdated concept to be confined to romance novels. A gentleman is the protagonist in his own epic, real-world struggle for good over evil. At its core is the battle for the survival of men who are often pitted against players with corrupt motives. This is the nature of misandry and it is definitely not a gentleman's cause to bow to the horde of nefarious characters that would profit at his expense and to the detriment of his family and community. The author brings an especially powerful expertise to the conversation. He has taught political science at universities in the US and Europe for over 30 years and has been publishing on family issues for almost 25 years. His research included a great deal of field work that is related to this topic. He has demonstrated in writing and other activities (see his author page for other books) a familiarity with the chief antagonists, their weapons and tactics, and their cultural impact. His knowledge shows. The book takes the form of a detailed argument rather than an arbitrary proclamation of behaviors. Readers will gain knowledge of the treacherous terrain that men face and what they need to consider in order to find their way. All good men should be part of this conversation. Read the book.
