The old-fashioned, repressed, un-moisturized man has been banished to the hinterlands and a new breed is taking center stage. He is a man of style, sophistication, and security, just as strong and confident as his predecessor, but far more diverse in his interests, his tastes, and, most importantly, his self-image. He may be seen at an NBA game one night and an art gallery opening the next. Able to navigate any social setting, he is informed, influential, intriguing, and very much in vogue these days. He is the new male ideal: the metrosexual man.So how can the average Joe keep up with this new version of cool? How should he behave, what shoes should he wear, and what CDs should he have in his collection? Answers to these questions and so many other pressing concerns can be found in The Metrosexual Guide to Style. Filled with entertaining anecdotes, famous quotes, helpful hints, dos and don'ts, recommendations and potential pitfalls, this handy guidebook covers everything from dining out to fashion and personal style, home décor to the Metro-mindset. It is the one-stop shop for the impeccably groomed and savvy modern man.

From what to order and how to order it to what to wear and how to wear it, the essentials of "metrosexual" savoir faire

(*Jean Cocteau quote*) - Art produces ugly things which frequently become beautiful with time... Fashion, on the other hand, produces beautiful things which always become ugly with time."

In this day and age where rudeness, indifference, and a peasant's mentality seems to be on the serious rise - I think that every man, woman, and teenager (regardless of their race or income bracket) ought to consider reading Michael Flocker's book "The Metrosexual Guide To Style".

'Cause - IMO - Without exception, everyone out there could, no doubt, benefit from some self-improvement and this here book certainly provides the clueless reader with a sound guide for doing just that - Improving oneself.

With plenty of "off-the-wall" humour thrown in for good measure - Flocker's book is the dos & don'ts for anyone seriously striving to be a full-fledged, self-pleased "metrosexual" in the quickest possible time (and they just don't quite know where to start).

Yes. From fitness, to fashion, to etiquette, to sex, and beyond - "The Metrosexual Guide To Style" is 160 pages of no-nonsense self-help that's actually fun to read.
