Overview

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 boyfriends' places—accidentally on purpose), A Practical Handbook for the Boyfriend lays out the manly steps involved in becoming a good boyfriend while still maintaining guy-dignity. It covers issue 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.

    A reviewer

    What is it with books like this? They encourage psychotic behavior on both sides of a relationship. If two people are just honest and open with each other, and don't play the games that this book encourages, then there would be no need for this kind of junk to be published.

    Way to encourage narotic behavior for girls

    This book is the reason that girls get so psychotic and crazy in relationships sometimes. What girls honestly thinks that if your boyfriend doesn't offer you junior mints that he doesn't love you, that is just pathetic. Maybe he is just a greedy pig. I am so disappointed that she would put her name on such a horrible book that would enourage some of the things this book does. You shouldn't have to build or train a boyfriend. Some things maybe need to change, but you shouldn't need to completely train one. And he shouldnt feel like he is training for the A team to become your boyfriend.

    Not what I was execting

    This was not at ALL what I was expecting, thinking it would be some sophmoric essay on 'how to pick up women' or some such nonsense. Just the opposite: it was well written, with a sense of humor, and highly intuitive. That said, you have to take this, and every book, with a grain of salt. Frankly, I loved it.
