CLEVELAND, OH – July 8, 2021 – In The Manners Playbook, bestselling author and counselor, James B. Wingo, M.Ed., serves as a mentor as he guides and educates young boys by doling out sage wisdom and accurate information. Through this practical and fun guide, young men, from those entering middle school to those entering college, will gain the insight needed to properly conduct themselves in an array of circumstances and environments.
“This book is for men and boys of all ages. This book is for fathers, to help them navigate this information for their sons or the young boys in their lives. Likewise, this is for the mother who needs information to talk to her son about the basics of manners for men. Often, mothers feel the need to talk to their sons. Now they have a book that can help in this process. All parents want to encourage their sons to be great and be accepted for who they are—Kings!” says Wingo.

Wingo’s tips for those who might be worried about their first date, wondering how to handle a fight with friends, or those wanting to impress someone will guide adolescent males along the path to living up to the person they are meant to be.
The Manners Playbook gives boys advice and rules on how to adjust and be comfortable in various settings. “We are descendants from Kings and Pharaohs and we should honor the fact that manners are not just for them but also us.”
