Publisher Comments:

Written in the same witty yet authoritative tone as When Duct Tape Isnand#8217;t Enough, this newest compilation from Popular Mechanics teaches 100 essential skills that every man should master. Sure, you can pay someone to do any job, but any man worthy of the title will resist the temptation and take charge himself, competently tackling everyday tasks, occasional duties, and whatever emergency the world throws at him. How to Carve a Turkey teaches the necessary skills that will impress friends and familyand#151;and sometimes save a life:

With these step-by-step instructions, real men:

- Handle critical situations: learn how to escape a sinking car, put out a fire with an extinguisher, escape a burning building, and stop a bleeding wound

- Are handy around the house: rewire a lamp, paint a room, and move heavy stuffand#160;

- Are kings of the road: safely maneuver during a skid, parallel park, kick-start a motorcycle, and use a torque wrench

- Master the culinary domain: season a cast-iron pan, open a bottle of champagne, andand#133;carve a turkey

- Survive in the great outdoors: start a campfire, pitch a tent, and remove a tick

- Know their electronics: Back up a computer, remove a stuck disk, hang a flat-screen TV
