An uplifting tribute to the finest qualities of humankind, presenting examples of kind and selfless acts from the worlds of sports, fashion, military, and daily life. Drawn from many sources, this engaging collection demonstrates that "gentlemanly behavior" transcends all barriers, from gender and wealth to age and class. Here are noble acts by footballers and fashionistas, television personalities and teenagers, great commanders and humble private soldiers, society ladies and modest housewives, elderly philosophers and very young children. It includes Alexander the Great, Marie Antoinette, the Duke of Wellington, Evelyn Waugh, Winston Churchill, Sammy Davis Jr., and Colonel Tim Collins. Often amusing, sometimes moving, occasionally astounding, and always fascinating, this collection is both a marvelous read and a tribute to the finest, albeit often overlooked, qualities of humankind.
