The book is quite fun to read. I didn't know Manton was a speech writer which I'm sure helps. Did anyone find where he writes how he defines where a man is short or tall, young or portly? I'm sure there is a degree of subjectiveness but I'm wondering if there is a range? I'd put short at about < 5'6", and tall at > 6'1". Anyone one else have problems with the classic definition of atheletic as > 6" or 8" drop? I have an 8-10" drop and I don't look anything like Ahnold. Basically I'm trying to see where I fit in and I don't think I fit easily into catergories.
