The Compleat Gentleman
The Modern Man's Guide to Chivalry
By Brad Miner
Narrated by Christopher Lane / 8 hours 36 minutes
At a time of astonishing confusion about what it means to be a man, Brad Miner has recovered the oldest and best ideal of manhood: the gentleman. Reviving a thousand-year tradition of chivalry, honor, and heroism, The Compleat Gentleman provides the essential model for twenty-first-century masculinity. Miner's modern gentleman stands out for his dignity, restraint, and discernment. He rejects the notion that one way of behaving is as good as another. He belongs to an aristocracy of virtue, not of wealth or birth. Proposing neither a club nor a movement, Miner describes a lofty code of manly conduct which, far from threatening democracy, is necessary for its survival. The Compleat Gentleman is filled with examples from the past and the present of the man our increasingly uncivilized age demands.
