MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (PRWEB) September 09, 2016
Michael J Hall, MD draws from his observations to write a contemporary guide to chivalry. Through dissecting and presenting the anatomy of “The American Gentleman” (published by AuthorHouse), Hall seeks to motivate his audience to embrace chivalry as a system for them to realize a greater sense of self-awareness and achieving their goals. The book, first published 15 years ago, is given an update and new ideas as a reminder to men and women alike that even in this modern day, chivalry must be kept alive.
According to the late US Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, MD, "'The American Gentleman' is written with certain questions in mind: How may 'chivalry' be applied today? When does it become chauvinism? Are these present customs or behaviors that may be improved? Are there behaviors that men and women can learn to create more compassion and simplicity? In other words, is there civilized human behavior that can be identified, explained and formulated into a recognized standard, and then applied to our contemporary lives?"
The book was written to inspire men to seek something greater than themselves, and to really set out to improve who they are through establishing a state of character. The ideas presented impart self-confidence to drive readers to appreciate that, as humans, they have to learn from each other, to appreciate each other for their unique strengths while improving their weaknesses. “Placing others' concerns before our own also gives us power to do what we need to gain greater character,” Hall highlights.
“Crafted differently from other self-help books, due to its distinctive Socratic style, the material is written to flow and lead the reader on a journey - from general theory and ideas to practical ways to employ the concepts into daily life,” says Hall, explaining why his book is unique. “It was written for everyone as a quick read, emphasizing the reader’s desire to gather the most salient ideas and thoughts about chivalry without being off-putting or boring.”
