Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The indispensable guide for fathers, sons, graduates, boyfriends, or any man who needs some helpful advice about all things manly. (It's about time!)

Fixing a faucet. Carving the Thanksgiving turkey. Impressing the fairer sex. How to behave when a lady faints. Mixing the perfect martini or mowing the perfect lawn. Being a man has become a lost art, but help is on the way. With more than one hundred "lost arts" documented throughout the book, How to Mow the Lawn will never let readers feel as if they don't know what to do should a manly situation come up.

Chapters include:

* The Great Outdoors: how to defend yourself against wild animals

* The Perfect Host: getting rid of guests politely

* Gaining Points with the Fairer Sex: remembering important dates and knowing which are important to her

* How to Be a Hero: how to stop a thief in your home

A book that teaches men the basic survival skills they need to win the hearts and minds of the women they love, How to Mow the Lawn is the next great revolution in humor.
