About John

John Bridges is the author of HOW TO BE A GENTLEMAN, today's most popular guide to every-day, and extraordinary, etiquette for the modern man.

"Over the course of my life, I've been to a lot of parties," says John. "What I've learned is that it's not enough simply to get invited. What's really important is knowing how to behave yourself, so you get invited back."

A native of Slapout, Alabama, John served as Classical Music Editor for the Nashville Tennessean, and was an award-winning columnist and editor for the Nashville Scene. He gained a wide following as associate editor for Nostalgia magazine and as etiquette columnist for Traditional Home magazine.

John served for eight years as Director of Cultural Affairs for the City of Nashville. A frequent media guest, he has been featured on the "TODAY Show," "CBS Sunday Morning," and the Discovery Channel. He has been profiled in the New York Times and in People magazine.

Men's Health, Details, Esquire and other major magazines regularly consult him for advice on appropriate behavior. John is also a happy contributor – talking about table manners -- to the popular podcast "Talking With My Mouth Full" (

John is the co-author, along with Bryan Curtis, of 12 other volumes in the "Gentlemanners" series, a publishing phenomenon that has now sold more than 1.5 million copies, world-wide.

HOW TO BE A GENTLEMAN and other titles in the "Gentlemanners" series have been translated into more than 20 languages – ranging from Spanish and Croation to Latvian and Vietnamese. A Romanian version came out in 2008. A Russian translation is scheduled for release in 2014.
