Book Giveaway and Guest Review: The Man's Book by Thomas Fink

Being modern and manly in today's world isn't always easy.

Do you know how to tie a bow-tie, mix a martini, or make a potato gun?

Do you know when to get married and how to break up, or the difference between a bock beer and a bitter?

Do you know which urinal to choose or how to start a fire with a Coke can?

The answers to every man's burning questions are within these pages, from the morning wet shave to the whiskey night-cap, from hunting deer with a .30-06 to wooing women like 007. At a time when the sexes are muddled and masculinity is marginalized, THE MAN'S BOOK unabashedly celebrates maleness. Organized by subject in a man-logical way, it's the go-to guide for anyone with a Y chromosome.

Guest Review from my fiance:

This book is a guide that all guys in their 20s should have. It has everything you need to know about anything that has to do with pop culture. You will find everything from the rules of drinking games, to how to play poker, to how to properly shave, and the list goes on and on. There are a few items in this book that I would dare to say are more opinion than fact, such as how to quantify a woman's beauty. Most of the items contained in this book are fairly accurate and provide a good basic knowledge-base for males in their 20s. You will find everything you would want to know about anything, and I see it as kind of like a handbook for males who want to stay on the 'in' of things. It most certainly won't hurt to read, and it may help you from making an jerk out of yourself in some situations.

Thomas Fink grew up in New York and Texas. He is a theoretical physicist and writer and lives in London. He designed THE MAN'S BOOK himself. He is a man.
