    Let me tell you about this book. Released in 1834, it was a book aimed at young men on how to live a better life, involving things like how to improve as a person, how to entertain yourself, and so on. From what I remember from the book, it tells you what kind of wife to marry, the gam...

    A book from 1834, The Young Man's Guide is a real gem between historical self-help / self-development books. I stumbled upon it by accident, downloaded the free Kindle edition and found it quite interesting. The author gives various advice on young men's lives, pretty much any topi...

    I wish that I had been given this book before I entered college, started my first job, or even got married. Some of the advice in this book is pure, unadulterated gold, and I heartily recommend it for any young man looking for advice on how to conduct himself in life. ...

    I read the Kindle version from Project Gutenberg. The transcription is quite good with very rare errors. I've been reading a few of William Alcott's Guides, including The Young Woman's Guide to Excellence. All of them provide fascinating insight into the turn 19th century. But, I w...

    I read this book because it was written a long time ago (1833) which gives a very good insight into the culture (American and little bit European). But more than that for readers especially young(i mean in their teens) will probably learn a lot from this book and ironically for 21st ce...

    I do not recommend this book. I thought it would have some interesting things to say (though it's 150 years old), but most of its suggestions are severely outdated and meaningless in the modern era. The only quality advice it gives is "What man has done, man can do." That's a philosoph...

    This book had plenty of good advice for a man just starting his life; However, it is dryer than an alum block. The first part of the book is easy to read, but once you're halfway through you'd prefer it just ended. I recommend it for anyone around college-age... as long as they're prep...

    I think this is a handbook that everyone should have. It has little trinkets of reminders and how we should strive to live. It's interesting because even though it's written back in the 1700s, the lessons taught are still applicable in today's society. ...

    Unfortunately I was expecting to get more out of this book, however like many books from the past the ideas are a bit dated, making it difficult to appreciate the authors stylings,perhaps if I was around 50 years back or so I would have been able to appreciate the workings of this book...

    As timely and prudent today as it was when written. This should be required reading for all men in their mid to late teens. If your older it is still worth the time to relearn your manners and revisit you expectations as a man in this world. ...

    A bit dated, neat book that attempts to instill some thinking into life. ...

    it was an exciting book. i recommended it to all of my friend. ...

    I read this book out loud to my kids. I really enjoyed it. Good, quick, practical wisdom that created good discussions with my children. ...

    Neat book, written in 1838 there are very many things that are out dated. Some of his thoughts on living and principles are still valid. ...

    Lots of good stuff. especially on the qualities that one has to look in potential spouse. ...

    Let me tell you about this book. Released in 1834, it was a book aimed at young men on how to live a better life, involving things like how to improve as a person, how to entertain yourself, and so on. From what I remember from the book, it tells you what kind of wife to marry, the gam...

    A book from 1834, The Young Man's Guide is a real gem between historical self-help / self-development books. I stumbled upon it by accident, downloaded the free Kindle edition and found it quite interesting. The author gives various advice on young men's lives, pretty much any topi...

    I wish that I had been given this book before I entered college, started my first job, or even got married. Some of the advice in this book is pure, unadulterated gold, and I heartily recommend it for any young man looking for advice on how to conduct himself in life. ...

    I read the Kindle version from Project Gutenberg. The transcription is quite good with very rare errors. I've been reading a few of William Alcott's Guides, including The Young Woman's Guide to Excellence. All of them provide fascinating insight into the turn 19th century. But, I w...

    I read this book because it was written a long time ago (1833) which gives a very good insight into the culture (American and little bit European). But more than that for readers especially young(i mean in their teens) will probably learn a lot from this book and ironically for 21st ce...

    I do not recommend this book. I thought it would have some interesting things to say (though it's 150 years old), but most of its suggestions are severely outdated and meaningless in the modern era. The only quality advice it gives is "What man has done, man can do." That's a philosoph...

    This book had plenty of good advice for a man just starting his life; However, it is dryer than an alum block. The first part of the book is easy to read, but once you're halfway through you'd prefer it just ended. I recommend it for anyone around college-age... as long as they're prep...

    I think this is a handbook that everyone should have. It has little trinkets of reminders and how we should strive to live. It's interesting because even though it's written back in the 1700s, the lessons taught are still applicable in today's society. ...

    Unfortunately I was expecting to get more out of this book, however like many books from the past the ideas are a bit dated, making it difficult to appreciate the authors stylings,perhaps if I was around 50 years back or so I would have been able to appreciate the workings of this book...

    As timely and prudent today as it was when written. This should be required reading for all men in their mid to late teens. If your older it is still worth the time to relearn your manners and revisit you expectations as a man in this world. ...

    A bit dated, neat book that attempts to instill some thinking into life. ...

    it was an exciting book. i recommended it to all of my friend. ...

    I read this book out loud to my kids. I really enjoyed it. Good, quick, practical wisdom that created good discussions with my children. ...

    Neat book, written in 1838 there are very many things that are out dated. Some of his thoughts on living and principles are still valid. ...

    Lots of good stuff. especially on the qualities that one has to look in potential spouse. ...

    I read this book because it was written a long time ago (1833) which gives a very good insight into the culture (American and little bit European). But more than that for readers especially young(i mean in their teens) will probably learn a lot from this book and ironically for 21st ce...

    I do not recommend this book. I thought it would have some interesting things to say (though it's 150 years old), but most of its suggestions are severely outdated and meaningless in the modern era. The only quality advice it gives is "What man has done, man can do." That's a philosoph...

    This book had plenty of good advice for a man just starting his life; However, it is dryer than an alum block. The first part of the book is easy to read, but once you're halfway through you'd prefer it just ended. I recommend it for anyone around college-age... as long as they're prep...
