A Boy Should Know How to Tie a Tie

LIFE LESSONS AND HARD-EARNED ADVICE THAT EVERY BOY NEEDS TO BECOME A MAN—AND EVERY MAN NEEDS TO BECOME A RESPECTED CITIZEN

                  
ANTWONE FISHER ALWAYS ADMIRED his foster father’s crisp sartorial style. It wasn’t until Fisher was a navy recruit that he realized this smartly dressed man had never taken the time to teach him how to be well-groomed—to reflect on the outside the man he was becoming on the inside. "A boy ought to know how to tie a tie," he thought angrily, as he struggled to master the navy’s required half-Windsor knot.

Filled with inspiring stories, wisdom, and practical know-how, A Boy Should Know How to Tie a Tie teaches:

  • Basics of personal style and hygiene: why cleaning, trimming, and polishing are essential daily habits
  • Key components of self-improvement: how to develop a routine for success and organize your personal space
  • The importance of identity: why reinventing oneself is a necessary part of growing up

With additional information about healthy eating, making smart financial decisions, and finding role models, Antwone Fisher offers a book filled with accessible life lessons.
