I was hoping this was going to be a self-help guide to personal improvement. Fail. (kidding. I don't judge books by their covers, but I do read book covers before I decide to commit to reading a book I don't know anything about). Reading the cover, I realized it was supposed to be funny. FAIL. Cameron apparently also wrote the "8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter." I hadn't read that, but had seen a couple episodes of the TV series, and thought "if they made a TV series out of it, it h ...more

Okay, so I fully admit that my first thought when I saw this book on the libaray shelf was, "Finally! A book written by a man, about how to change a man...this is great!!! I hope it can teach me how to teach my husband how to get his clothes INTO the laundry basket instead of BESIDE the basket!!!" In other words, I didn't realize the book was, essentially, humorous fiction. So although my initial hopes for the usefulness of this book were dashed upon reading it, I still really liked the book. It ...more

This is the funniest book I've read in a long time! As in, laugh out loud funny. This is probably not the best book to read in a public place, where strangers stare at you every time you laugh, wondering what the heck is wrong with you. I enjoyed every remodeling tip, from how to get your man to help with housework without giving him a chance to sabotage it, to how to get a man to listen. Cameron managed to gather the many things women complain about in men and how to fix the situation (insert M ...more

This book is hilarious!!! I absolutely loved the author's sense of humor, his perspective, and his sarcasm. This is the type of book that needs to be read with a pen and a notebook, because there are so many simply priceless quotes that I would want to have handy.
Two highlights of the book: the conversation between intestine and brain about farting problems in church and the manual on how to change toilet paper. :)

still in the process of reading... but you gotta love a book that makes you laugh out loud! told from the point of view from a (self-proclaimed) "remodeled" man, the author gives insight & advice to the inner thoughts of a man. witty, sarcastic and down-right funny!

This book I took to my girlfriend's house book to read to her while the husbands caught up.
No woman could get away with writing this. But since a man wrote it, it is just fine to make fun of the irritating male behaviors. Once again, laugh out loud funny.

Hilarious book that nails every male stereotype and plays havoc with them in a a funny way. It also teaches women that there are some things you can't mess around with a man.. but some tips to help. Yes, my boyfriend knows I"m reading this. It's so funny!

This book is absolutely hilarious. I read parts of it out loud to my husband, and he thought that the author's insights on the male species were right on. If you need a good laugh and some relational food for thought, this is the place to start.

A little uneven at times, but frequently laugh-out-loud and with an embedded story to boot. Recommended for a quick read (even though it took me a long time, that has nothing to do with the book).

Very funny book :) I highly recommend this one. It's a little more of a straight comedy book than an actual guide that might help, but I think a lot of the stuff he says will be helpful :)

It is a fun book. Some of the exampled dialogues are a bit over the top.
Hubster called this man a traitor. I'm pretty sure it's because many of these "quirks" applied to him, too.

A male (!) friend gave me this book to read. And I loved it. Laughed and laughed as I read it. A light read but fun ; very tongue in cheek.

Funny from start to finish. An entertaining read on how you really won't be able to change a man, but if you wanted to try, this would be the book.

This made me laugh out loud almost as much as Bill Bryson does. A great book for married women.

FUNNY! You have to read this book as it was intended... tongue and cheek.. but oh gosh, SO FUNNY!

It was very funny. I laughed so hard sometimes I cried. Would guys like it as much? I don't know.

Somehow coming from a man, this book doesn't work. Corny and predictable.

I’ve always loved dogs, which puts me in a unique category along with what, maybe two or three billion people?

What’s not to love about an animal who will sit in your living room all day long, waiting for you to get home, and even if you need to work late and then stop for a stress-relieving beverage on your way home, when you unlock that front door, is absolutely overjoyed to see you? How could yo
