How To Be A Gentleman: A Monkey's Review

What does being a gentleman mean to you?

Does it mean knowing which fork to use at a properly-set table? Does it mean being so impeccably dressed as to make Patrick Bateman and 007 envious? Does it mean knowing when to tip, how to tie a bowtie, or how to properly greet a lady?

It can be all of those things, but at its core being a gentleman is more than just being the nice guy or being the best dresser. It's about getting out of your head for a change and soberly considering how you come off to other people. It can be summed up in one of the first gentlemanly criteria laid out in this book:

"A gentleman never gets so big that he can feel free to say or do things that make other people feel small."

Damn, It Feels Good To Be A Banker: A Monkey's Review

"I used to read the Leveraged Sellout religiously, before it...you know, died," an old friend used to say wistfully. The infamous blog may be old news to some, but luckily LSO left us with a non-electronic memoir of his unique blend of sarcasm and humor: "Damn, It Feels Good To Be A Banker."

It's not meant to be taken very seriously and it's a bit dated now (it came out in 2008, which may as well have been another planet), but it's great for laughs and takes a fun look at investment banking. Alternatively, it can serve as a much-needed ego stroke if you're feeling down about your job.
