From the Publisher:

Originally written for Debrett¹s Peerage, Douglas Sutherland¹s guide to that endangered species, the English Gentleman, was composed as an antidote to all the dull little books on manners: the kind read by those who long to be recognized as part of the real gentry by the way they use their finger bowl or address an archbishop. Both genuinely informative and very amusing, The English Gentleman offers the parvenu a window onto the world of the genuine article. It describes his habits: where he might live, what he might wear, his school, his clubs, his hobbies and sports, his family and relationships, his mode of speech, and the acceptable way to behave in almost any given situation (invariably the very opposite of what the outsider might think). Not to mention advice on the correct attitude toward money (it¹s vulgar), sex (it¹s vulgar), and business (it¹s vulgar unless, of course, it¹s run at a heavy loss). A hilarious initiation into the eccentric world of the stiff upper lip.

About the Author:

Douglas Sutherland was a descendant in the male line of William, Earl of Sutherland in 1235. He went through private school, public school and the regular army and lived in what he described as the coldest mini-castle in Scotland. He was a well-known shot, salmon fisherman and bon vivant.
