Publisher Comments:

Now bigger and better than ever, with nearly 100 new entries!

Here are all the best "manly" rules from Esquire's popular feature, collected in one heck of an amusing and enlightening paperback.

Just being a man was never more fraught with confusion and peril-and that's why this best-selling guide has been expanded. Derived from Esquire's popular feature, this men's manual to life offers more than 600 rules and manly musings. Accompanied by wry black and white illustrations on each page, the rules are guaranteed to set a guy straight. Here is entertainment to live by:

Rule number 198: When it comes to luggage, men don't pull.

Rule number 311: A man should avoid using the phrase "assume the position" on the first date.

Rule number 543: If you can't make it good, make it big. And if you can't make it big, make it red.

Rule number 538: No bioweapons jokes in the cover letter.

Rule number 571: Every sitcom must feature an episode in which the male character is tragically torn between celebrating a romantic milestone and using unexpected basketball tickets.

Rule number 592: One exclamation point per e-mail!

Rule number 597: Disc 2 is the best disc in the box set.

Rule number 600: The wackier a doctor's neckties, the less prestigious the medical school.

Rule number 604: The best villains have accents and walk slowly.

Synopsis:

Derived from Esquires popular feature, this wildly entertaining, bestselling mens manual to life in the 21st century is revised, expanded, and with color added! It now offers 668 rules in all (91 of them new to this edition), providing even more lighthearted reading, manly musings, and, occasionally, good advice. Accompanied by full-color illustrations throughout, these rules are guaranteed to set a guy straight. Here is what guys need to live by:

Rule number 2: When someone says he is “pumped” about something, it usually means hes about to do something stupid.

Rule number 36: No matter how hard you practice, you cannot say the phrase, “Yeah, right” without sounding sarcastic.

Rule number 45: For the last time, no goddamn Speedos.

Rule number 108: The road to hell is not paved with good intentions. The road to hell is paved with smooth-jazz CDs, herbal teas, John Tesh specials, and low-fat cheese.

Rule number 154: Properly made, leftover chili gets better and better every day until the fourth day, at which point it begins its slow decline.

Rule number 59: The study of inert gases is best left to professionals.

Rule number 38: When it comes to luggage, men dont pull.
