Like most books of this type, however enjoyable, this is not a book for reading cover to cover.

A must-have coffe table/bathroom book for every bachelor pad. The hardcover is probably slightly larger than a sheet of paper and goes around 200+ pages. Comes complete with instructions on how to play craps, info about potato cannons and pumpkin-chuckers, lists of the best war movies, sports info, zippo lighters, WD-40, airplanes, manly food (philly cheese steaks and chilli) and 3 complete pages designated to a list of names for male and female private parts...and naturally, a section on the Po ...more
Hysterically funny guide to all things manly, including how to cry. LOTS of wisdom, interspersed with wry tongue-in-cheek advise on how to be a man. Not politically correct or safe for work.

Everything I know about being a man, I learned from this book.
