With this formula, Bentley transformed himself into an icon of unflappable grace, elegance, and good manners'and now he's on a mission to help you step up your game, advance your swagger, get ahead, and live out your dreams. Inside you'll 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 you're a host or a guest - the do's and "oh no you di'int's" of cell phones, e-mail, and text messaging - projecting confidence through your body language - the power of introductions, even when you can't remember someone's 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. He's 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.
