Publisher Comments:

Most dating books are written for women — what a mistake that is. Women know how to date....It's men who need the help! At last: a blithe, bold, and bawdy guide to building a better boyfriend.

At some point, every guy — player, geek, mama's boy, "regular Joe" — meets a woman who makes him want to be a boyfriend. A good boyfriend. Problem is, unless he's had some first-rate training (by a previous girlfriend, a sister, a mom), he probably doesn't even know what that means. Felicity Huffman and Patricia Wolff come to the rescue with a rollicking — and whip-smart — handbook to navigating the minefield of male-female relationships.

Directed at men (though of course it's women who'll buy it, then leave it at their boyfriend's place — accidentally on purpose), A Practical Handbook for the Boyfriend lays out the many steps involved in becoming a good boyfriend, while still maintaining guy-dignity. It covers issues like:

  • Who decides when you become a boyfriend (answer: She does.)
  • How to look like you're listening, even when you're not (If you're busted, just say "You're so pretty, I'm distracted.")
  • Ten things never to say on the first date (#4: "I just did that to freak you out.")
  • Finding the middle ground between too cool (think third grade) and too eager (think surprise visits)
  • Why becoming a good boyfriend is a lot like training for the A team
Filled with humor, ribaldry, common sense, and assorted outdoor skills, A Practical Handbook for the Boyfriend is the next dating guide to dominate the bestseller lists.

Synopsis:

Emmy Award-winning actress Huffman (Desperate Housewives) and film producer Wolff offer a rollicking and whip-smart handbook for men, laying out the many steps involved in becoming a good boyfriend.

Synopsis:

Just when you thought there was nothing left to say about dating, Desperate Housewives darling Felicity Huffman and her best friend since college, Patty Wolff, come up with The Book on boyfriend etiquette, the all-in-one guide that answers the question: What happens when he is that into you? A cheat-sheet on how to succeed in love without really lying, The Practical Handbook for the Boyfriend helps women navigate the often impenetrable terrain of relationships and offers advice on a diverse range of issues, such as:

???& nbsp; Who decides when you become a boyfriend???she does.

???& nbsp; Daily aggravations???e.g. I hate how you chew.

???& nbsp; What??'s sexy (boxer shorts and backrubs), and what??'s not (toupees and toenail clippings).

???& nbsp; Sex toys, erogenous zones, and other things that go bump???and grind ???in the night.

An insider??'s look at the difference between guy-logic and girl-behavior, The Practical Handbook for the Boyfriend takes it shape from the relationships it hopes to demystify, moving from the first date, to the first kiss, from make-up sex to the rebound date.& nbsp; This is the book that women will want to buy to accidentally-on-purpose leave at their boyfriend??'s place.& nbsp;
