    A reviewer

    This book is one of the funniest things I have ever read. I think that it really shows that Tim Allen is a truly funny man. It starts out talking about how is real last name (Dick) helped shape the kind of person he has become. But doesn¿t just say last name is Dick and oooh man did I get mad fun of. He makes if funny and interesting. With in the fist few sentences you are sucked in. He also talks about guy problems and personal experiences to go along with them. One of the things he talks about is his problems with alcohol and cocaine. It really opens your eyes to see that even stars are people and sometimes they just mess up. One thing I really liked about this book was it was written as if he were talking directly to you. Over all I would have to say this is a great book and I think that boys a spicily would enjoy it.

    A Great Man Tim Allen

    Well this book is about a very funny man by the name of Tim Allen . The title of this book is Tim Allen Don't Stand Too Close To A Naked Man. He talk about child life as a boy , mostly about guy stuff. Also he would talk about his teen boy life like he smoke just to be cool and just a girl that he didn't even get . He also gives us some what guy tips about a girls. Like don't let a girl some what run your life. He tells us guy we are the man in the relationship . You would also read about his time when he went jail for selling drugs and he tells us that he wish he could go back in time. He also went to prison and he say never go there because there are a lot lunatics in prison. He talk about what he did on his free time like he fix up cars like he would put in a new stereo system and fix the engine so it would go fast and etc . Also he say that all guys have secrets and they should never be said or told . What think about this books is that it is a great book . I would tell people to read this read this book ,but I would recommend this book to only guy or girl that want to know about guy stuff. When I read this book I could some what say my life is some what like his . If I had to rate the book 1 to 10 I would rate it 8 . When you are reading the book it is like he his talk to you face to face . It is also like he is joking with you while you read his book.

    Hilarious book

    ¿Don¿t Stand too Close too a Naked Man¿ is the autobiography of Timothy Allen Dick, the comedian. He talks about why he decided to use his middle name instead of his last name professionally. In one of the chapters at the beginning of the book, he talks about his time in jail. He was arrested for selling drugs on the street. His time in prison shaped Tim Allen into the comedian that he is today. In another chapter, he talks about his friend¿s older brother¿s room and what was in it. In the room there was a picture of a model wearing nothing but her hat. He claims that that picture changed his life. About the middle of the book, he talks about his dream house. It is a house made out of stainless steel. Close to the end of the book, he discuses with his readers his line of power tools and how many he has. He also claims to own every kind of power tool made. ¿Don¿t Stand Too Close To A Naked Man¿ is a guy¿s book for sure. Tim Allen is able to keep the reader¿s attention throughout the entire book. Tim Allen¿s purpose in writing this book was to let the public know a little more about his life. Tim Allen accomplished this by just letting out some of the things that he has kept a secret most of his life. The major theme in this book is that even the smallest things shape you into the person that you are.
