Part of me wanted to be really upset with humorist Dave Barry for revealing many well-guarded Guy secrets in this book, but the other part of me got distracted from doing so by watching a neighbor fire a Civil War era cannon in his yard for no apparent reason.

Barry's mission (that he chose to accept) is to keep the reader laughing and this book absolutely delivers. Recommended reading for every guy, in order to learn more about themselves (as long as they don't get emotional), and for every female so that they can better understand their mates and what exactly they are getting themselves into.

No information is sugarcoated and no punches are pulled over the 200+ page exploration of the guy psyche. As long as you remember that Dave is writing a humor book intended to make you chuckle, you'll appreciate his insight and his jokes.

Even though this book is approaching it's 20 year mark, it's still a hilarious today's as it likely was upon publication. If you don't need a ton of substance with your laughs, you'll enjoy this title along with anything else written by the funniest man in America.
