Kyle and I both read this and it was laugh out loud hilarious! The rules of manhood laid out in a "how to."
Warning..... there are a few rules that don't necessarily fit into a conservative culture.
This is one of the funniest books that I have ever read. It has some interesting info on life, love, and many other aspects of manhood. Definitely a must read.
This book is so hilarious.
You've got to admit ... men really do need books like this., July 13, 2010

My interest in this book was sparked by a quest to find a simple, humorous and self-deprecating book about the "man's world". While there are several book titles available that piqued my interest; I chose "The Maxims of Manhood: 100 Rules Every Real Man Must Live By" primarily because it covered a wide range of topics and more importantly, the simple, structured format of the book: a finite and tangible list of items (maxi...more
OK, so I highly recommend this book to all men. Especially men with a desire to become men.

First off, it's hilariously written. I actually would regular crack up, out loud, completely alone while reading.

Secondly, despite some hyperbole for comedic sake, many of these maxims are very good and useful advice. Seriously.... this is the kind of book men should read and quote to each while out. I have already found myself telling friends gems from the book like:

-You don't cheat.
-Your dog is larger...more

Got pitched this by a publicist via work and decided to check out a review copy in case I ever needed the author as a source for an article. So far it's really good and a lot smarter/funnier/mature than I expected.
It was a good casual read. There were definitely parts that had me laughing out loud. It was easy to read when I was busy: reading a maxim or two and being able to put it down was convenient.

friendly advice: dont follow these maxims blindly. just dont.
