Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“My manners were the first ingredient that set me apart from my peers,” notes the suave and stylish Fonzworth Bentley, Sean “Diddy” Combss former personal assistant and a celebrity in his own right. Now, in this one-of-a-kind book, Bentley shares his surefire strategies for success.

Just how does a guy move from Atlanta to New York City without knowing a soul in the entertainment industry and become, in less than two years, the P.A. to one of the biggest moguls in hip-hop history? Bentley attributes his accomplishment to one key equation: Manners + Confidence + Style = Swagger. With this formula, Bentley transformed himself into an icon of unflappable grace, elegance, and good manners-and now hes on a mission to help you step up your game, advance your swagger, get ahead, and live out your dreams.

Inside youll learn everything you need to know about

• manners and the magic of Please and Thank You

• the art of eating well, from which glass to use to handling the napkin

• the basics of fine dining, whether youre a host or a guest

• the dos and “oh no you diints” of cell phones, e-mail, and text messaging

• projecting confidence through your body language

• the power of introductions, even when you cant remember someones name

• what to do before, during, and after a job interview

• body maintenance, from hair to toes to pearly whites

• the principles of timeless fashion, so you never go out of style

• 15 things every man and 15 things every woman must have in his or her closet

Plus “Bent Hints”-little things to keep in mind for any occasion

Though we seem to be in the midst of what Bentley calls “the Golden Age of Disrespect,” he demonstrates how we can add a touch of class and dignity to our lives. Hes here to make sure your color schemes are fly and your stance is stage-ready.

Filled with photographs to illustrate his lessons, Advance Your Swagger is the lifestyle book of the year. Hes taken care of his world-now let Mr. Bentley whip yours into style.

Synopsis:

From the man whose manners and style have taken him from celebrity assistant to a celebrity in his own right comes this illustrated guide of etiquette tips, rules, and lessons. Full-color photographs throughout.
