I stumbled upon it by accident, downloaded the free Kindle edition and found it quite interesting. The author gives various advice on young men's lives, pretty much any topic you can imagine: from marriage to being neat, on how to behave in society, get an education, run a business, but even such advice as how many meals to eat thorough the day.
While some of the ideas are old-fashioned like the eating--only three times a day; we all know that five times a day is the "correct" way approved by nutritionists and many of them are based on Bible and word of God, I found so many points interesting and still very up-to-date.
The Young Man's Guide to Awesomeness
It's true I skipped some parts of the book, simply because they were boring, but otherwise the writing was easy to read and felt quite fresh. Recommended especially if you're doing some research. I wish that I had been given this book before I entered college, started my first job, or even got married. Some of the advice in this book is pure, unadulterated gold, and I heartily recommend it for any young man looking for advice on how to conduct himself in life.
I should be more courteous and gracious, but this particular version is abridged and the book doesn't mention that anywhere. Hardpass and buy the full version. Jan 25, Harry rated it liked it. A temperance movement guy giving advice to young men on things like marriage etc etc, kinda boring but useful advice. Jan 28, Alxandra rated it it was amazing. I read the Kindle version from Project Gutenberg. The transcription is quite good with very rare errors. All of them provide fascinating insight into the turn 19th century.
But, I was delighted to find this book provides more concrete examples and suggestions and covers information on how to conduct business, politeness, and choosing a wife. The book is heavily Christian based which is not surprising given when it was written. The somewhat flowery advice in his books for ladies is skipped for bluntness in this book, although he does refer to masturbation as 'the solitary vice'.
I thoroughly enjoyed a glimpse into turn of the century advice for young men. Jan 04, Bhupesh Doda rated it really liked it. I read this book because it was written a long time ago which gives a very good insight into the culture American and little bit European. But more than that for readers especially young i mean in their teens will probably learn a lot from this book and ironically for 21st century young man in their 20's they will not benefit much from it as i think they are already ruined :P,but i believe its never too late to learn some few mantras of life which makes your life less miserable.

In general if you a are confused if your girlfriend can be a good wife b or you are setting up a business c or need some manliness tips then this a book for you. I do not recommend this book. I thought it would have some interesting things to say though it's years old , but most of its suggestions are severely outdated and meaningless in the modern era. The only quality advice it gives is "What man has done, man can do. Apr 23, Jaymason rated it liked it. This book had plenty of good advice for a man just starting his life; However, it is dryer than an alum block.

The first part of the book is easy to read, but once you're halfway through you'd prefer it just ended. I recommend it for anyone around college-age I think this is a handbook that everyone should have. It has little trinkets of reminders and how we should strive to live.
It's interesting because even though it's written back in the s, the lessons taught are still applicable in today's society. Unfortunately I was expecting to get more out of this book, however like many books from the past the ideas are a bit dated, making it difficult to appreciate the authors stylings,perhaps if I was around 50 years back or so I would have been able to appreciate the workings of this book.
As timely and prudent today as it was when written. This should be required reading for all men in their mid to late teens. If your older it is still worth the time to relearn your manners and revisit you expectations as a man in this world. A bit dated, neat book that attempts to instill some thinking into life.

About the Author In my short life so far I have been a project manager, a business analyst, a chartered IT professional and a management consultant; paradoxically I have also been an English teacher in Asia, a bass player in an aspiring rock band.
I ran my own business, earned a six-figure salary But I gained my undergraduate degree in 6 years after a re-sit year and a course change, but gained a , enjoyed my degree immensely and was academically successful from that point onwards, gaining over 10 post-graduate industrial qualifications. I have travelled to 81 destinations in 25 countries across 4 continents and have 8 major career jobs on my CV not including numerous temporary and part-time jobs whilst a student. Even this does not qualify me to write this book, but it helps.
As you can see I have experienced a lot in a short time and as I reach the milestone of my 30th birthday I am merely looking back and documenting all I learned as a young man and live by today! I am looking back and capturing what I have learned up to now, something that I can pass on to my younger friends and peers who I often advise. Show More.
