Hereâ€™s a book that I think might intrigue my male readers. Brent Kenton Jordan has written The Chivalry Code: Discussions on Becoming a Man in a Modern World. Now, before you think this is another â€œbe a manâ€ guide, remember that this is the same man who wrote Stripped: Twenty Years of Secrets from Inside the Strip Club.
A discussion on chivalrous philosophy created by a man who has spent most of his life watching men at their worst is an intriguing idea â€“ to me. The Chivalry Code is on my buy/read list. It sounds like a Robert Greene-style of book with a less-than-academic twist.
This is blatant free plug for Brentâ€™s book. I know him. A little. I approached him cold, through e-mail, more than a year ago. Heâ€™s been very nice to me and has patiently answered my questions. Weâ€™ve never met. The book would be on my list even if I didnâ€™t know him; itâ€™s just likely I would not have heard about it.
