My small concern is that I feel some of the lessons are slipping out of touch with modern society, or apply for people who are in a better financial position then I am. As a 26 year old, when I have dinner parties I don't see myself making multiple courses, or having a potluck in Martha's vineyard where dinner is cooked over cannon balls. I also don't have the wardrobe that is needed to fit in most social situations, but like any book, take it with a grain of salt and apply a little bit of yourself to the situation.
The author wrote it in a manner that any man who is conscious of proper behavior can relate to. And it it is very pertinent and easy to follow.
This book will be helpful in your relationships with all the ladies in your life. From your daughter to your mother-in-law.
The suspicious flaw in this book is the treatment of flirting. Much of the book addresses marriage etiquette, really. Most of the suggestions are great.
Yet....He states that "harmless" flirting is only a problem when the wife sees, and, is upset. Really, Mr. Post?? Let's tell the truth. Let's talk about the Golden Rule or maybe the Platinum rule.. shall we? Yes, let's admit that flirting is hurtful and inappropriate whether she happens to see that time and say something, or not. Let's admit that you would rather not accept an idea of your wife flirting with handsome, bantering, men. I'll bet she'd rather that you didn't flirt with women. What was that Platinum rule again...???
She knows how you have rationalized and attempted to legitimatize mental and emotional adultery: I'm sure she has read your book. And when you hide your determination to flirt with women other than your own wife, amidst the really "nice" suggestions of the previous and following chapters, I feel like I'm being manipulated. Could the whole book be an effort to excuse your flirting? Gross.
Also, come to think of it, your approval of looking at other women (with desire) --"if your wife doesn't see", falls into the same unpleasant and ungentlemanly category.
What a waste, to attempt to make gentlemen.. and to undermine the sanctity of marriage: the main bond and relationship in a person's life.
And really, Mr. Post, you are only hurting yourself. Even if your wife claims to not care, you are not caring for her heart. She cannot help but to quietly distance her heart from a man who is less than fully trustworthy. What if you lost her? From killing her heart? I have friends that have left their husband for this very thing.
I don't recommend this book. I don't trust Peter Post's opinion anymore.
