Genre: Sports & Recreation

Ein herrlicher Sommertag, ein gepflegter Golfplatz, es weht eine leichte Brise. Alle Zutaten einer großartigen Runde liegen bereit. Dennoch geht manch Golfer unzufrieden vom Platz, da er nicht das angepeilte Ergebnis gespielt hat oder sich gegenüber seinen Mitspielern auch nicht von seiner besten Seite gezeigt hat. Dem Golf-Gentleman passiert das nicht. Sein Verhalten richtet er so aus, dass seine Mitspieler eine angenehme Golfrunde erleben. Er weiß, dass er mit tadellosem Benehmen mehr beeindruckt als mit guten Schlägen. An unangenehme Mitspieler erinnert sich man noch lange, an deren gute Schläge meistens nur kurz. Über den Golf-Gentleman greift das Buch die Golf-Etikette auf. An den Stationen eines typischen Golftags wird beschrieben, wie sich ein Golf-Gentleman verhält. Manch Golfer wird sich wiedererkennen. Oder er wird neue Verhaltensweisen ausprobieren. Sein Lohn: Wer auf dem Golfplatz mit allen denkbaren Charakteren zurechtkommt, wer in Phasen der persönlichen Hochs und Tiefs seiner Mitspieler Gelassenheit zeigt, auch wenn er selbst unter großer Spannung steht, der bleibt auch in beruflichen und privaten Situationen länger souverän.

The English Gentleman

Author: Douglas Sutherland

ISBN: 1853754188
Release Date: 2001
Genre: Fiction

Originally written for Debrett's Peerage, Douglas Sutherland's guide to that endangered species, the English Gentleman, was composed as an antidote to all the dull little books on manners. 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. Not to mention advice on the correct attitudes toward money (it's vulgar), sex (it's vulgar), and business (it's vulgar unless, of course, it's run at a heavy loss). This is a hilarious initiation into the eccentric world of the stiff upper lip.

The old-fashioned, repressed, bland man has been banished to the Himalayas and a new breed is taking center stage.

More than half a million readers have fallen in love with the New York Times bestseller A Gentleman in Moscow “How delightful that in an era as crude as ours this finely composed novel stretches out with old-World elegance.” —The Washington Post “‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ and ‘Eloise’ meets all the Bond villains.” —TheSkimm “Irresistible . . . [an] elegant period piece . . . as lavishly filigreed as a Fabergé egg.” —O, The Oprah Magazine He can’t leave his hotel. You won’t want to. From the New York Times bestselling author of Rules of Civility—a transporting novel about a man who is ordered to spend the rest of his life inside a luxury hotel. In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery. Brimming with humor, a glittering cast of characters, and one beautifully rendered scene after another, this singular novel casts a spell as it relates the count’s endeavor to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a man of purpose. “And the intrigue! . . . [A Gentleman in Moscow] is laced with sparkling threads (they will tie up) and tokens (they will matter): special keys, secret compartments, gold coins, vials of coveted liquid, old-fashioned pistols, duels and scars, hidden assignations (discreet and smoky), stolen passports, a ruby necklace, mysterious letters on elegant hotel stationery . . . a luscious stage set, backdrop for a downright Casablanca-like drama.” —The San Francisco Chronicle
