The Maxims of Manhood: 100 Rules Every Real Man Must Live by Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Your dog must be larger than a toaster. Tip well. Never use the word blossom. Outperform the GPS. Know how to chug a beer (and know that you shouldn't). Always hold the door. Never use emoticons.

These are The Maxims of Manhood. They cover every aspect of life: women, sports, sex, the office, family, entertainment, fashion, fitness, and more women. Some of these you'd expect. Some you wouldn't, as they usher in amodern code of masculinity (Your favorite book may not be The Da Vinci Code). In a series of 100 essays, the rules are analyzed, explained, vigorously defended and openly mocked. Every rule has an authorized exception. Except the ones that don't.

This book might not be for you. It's only intended for people who fall into one of these seven buckets: 1) you are a man; 2) you will become a man; 3) you were once a man; 4) you are related to a man; 5) you are dating or have married a man; 6) you think that in the future, perhaps, you will date or marry a man; 7) you know, or think that at some point you will know--whether casually or formally--a man.

Synopsis:

Switching your favorite sports team is forbidden.

Children should carried in your armsanever in a BabyBjArn.

Workplace e-mails must contain a precise total of zero exclamation points.

Some rules are made to be broken; however, these arenat them. Instead, these man laws are what every living, breathing, beer-guzzling, football-watching guy must put in to practice. The maxims cover a variety of subjects from dating to parenting to work to entertainment, and each comes packed with its importance, examples of the of the maxim in action, and exceptions to the principle (because, well, rules really are made to be broken). This guide will lay down the law with entries like:

If she is in the mood, you are in the mood.

Never order a drink that includesaor has even the slightest chance of includingaa straw, umbrella, or cherry.

It is only permissible to wear sunglasses when youare actually in the sun.

Itas the complete set of rules for an unruly people.
