Críticas:

"He's been telling "GQ "readers how to dress and behave for eleven years. But Style Guy Glenn O'Brien's true expertise may be the art of social navigation. So take it from the man who has always made sure he's in the right circle. (Hell, he had a new-wave talk show! His boss was Andy Warhol!)" "GQ"

"Rather than a list of do's and don'ts, "How to Be a Man "is part philosophy treatise, part sartorial self-help manual and part call to arms for the Renaissance man. It's a clever collection of essays on topics ranging from grooming ('Man is a Fur-Bearing Mammal') and accessorizing ('Jewels and the Man') to behavior ('How to Fight Like a Man') and death ('How to Exit'), all in prose that's entertaining and fun to parse." "LA Times Magazine"

"There are the requisite chapters on how to dress with panache for the occasion, as well as nuggets of humor and wisdom related to socializing, travel, dealing with doctors, dealing with religious people and even getting into fights. 'Using the appropriate epithet is crucial, ' point out O'Brien." "WWD
"
"But Mr. O'Brien id also versed in design and fashion, the author of the long-running "GQ "advice column, The Style Guide, as well as a new book, "How to Be a Man."" "New York Times"

""How to Be a Man: A Guide to Style and Behavior For the Modern Gentleman "is possible the best title for a book I've ever seen!" Slamxhype

."..I think I'm going to start leaving copies of [it] at bars and restaurants in LA so that locals can get some tips..." Champagne and Heels

Reseña del editor:

The ultimate sartorial and etiquette guide, from the ultimate life and style guru. By turns witty, sardonic, and always insightful, Glenn O'Brien's advice column has been a must-read for several generations of men (and their spouses and girlfriends). Having cut his teeth as a contributor at Andy Warhol's Interview in its heyday, O'Brien sharpened them as the creative director of advertising at the hip department store Barneys New York for ten years before starting his advice column at Details magazine in 1996. Eventually his column, "The Style Guy," migrated to its permanent home at GQ magazine, where O'Brien dispenses well-honed knowledge on matters ranging from how to throw a cocktail party (a diverse guest list is a must), putting together a wardrobe for a trip to Bermuda (pack more clothes for less dressing), or when it is appropriate to wear flip-flops in public (never). How To Be a Man is the culmination of O'Brien's thirty years of accumulated style and etiquette wisdom, distilled through his gimlet eye and droll prose. With over forty chapters on style and fashion (and the difference), on dandies and dudes, grooming and decorating, on how to dress age-appropriately and how to age gracefully, this guide is the new essential read for men of all ages.
