Publisher Comments:

Finally, a book that guarantees your balls will be stomped; a book so manly that it will make even the burliest of men (and in some cases, the burliest of women) feel inadequate. So manly, it needs to be shaved: The Alphabet of Manliness. This collection of sacred writings may very well be the greatest compilation of all things manly throughout history. Here's a small sample of the ass-kickery found within these revered pages of outright manliness:
  • People getting drop-kicked in the face
  • Phallic aggression
  • Violence in excess of what has come to be known as excessive
  • Garish disregard for the well-being of children
  • Contempt for animals, women, and other cultures
  • Shit jokes
  • Intimidating rhetoric
  • Obscure penile references
  • Tit punching
  • The triumph of flannel over good taste
This book is only for the saltiest, hairiest, most rugged son of a bitch out there. However, it would be selfish to keep it for myself, so feel free to buy a copy. This humble tome of wisdom is a tribute to all men who toil away at work every day, getting their balls busted, or busting balls.

If you can't handle the punch to the colon I'm about to deliver to you, look on the bright side: you'll save a fortune on Halloween when kids come to your door to pick apart your candy ass. On the other hand, if you feel comfortable with the risk of having your ass neatly packaged and handed to you with all the trimmings, cut the foreplay and crack the book open already.

I've been looking forward to this book for a lifetime it seems. Maddox does not let down. It's a fantastic book for anyone. I do mean anyone. Children should be read this book before they can speak. I think more people would think twice about saying something stupid if there was the definite possibility of repercussion. This book is fun to read as well as educational. There is useful information and thoughtful outlooks contained in it that most people don't think of often enough. Read this book. You will not regret it. You might regret it if you don't read it and you meet someone who has. This book will go down in history as one of the greats.
