The von Hoffman Brothers are at it again with the Bigger Damner Book of Sheer Manliness, a revised and updated release of their 1997 classic Big Damn Book of Sheer Manliness. This book is a rallying cry for every guy whose time has come to get back to his masculine roots and reclaim lost ground in today’s mixed-up world.

Face it, after more than a decade since the original hit book’s debut, the time has come for guys to get a reminder that their favorite pastimes are here to stay and more fun than ever! And women, haven’t you wondered why so much of the male population shares a common love for cars, manly movies, beer, and WD-40? This book is an equal opportunity celebration of manhood, whether you’re a guy looking for new ideas and great suggestions, or a lady trying to figure out why that man in your life acts so passionately about the strangest things.

Inside you’ll find musings on manly sports, dirty jokes, great chili recipes, 200 names for your "Johnson," women we like, profiles of pioneers and outdoorsmen, advice to cure hangovers, limericks to help spread manliness through rhyme, and much, muchmore!

Features:

  • A fully revised and updated edition of the manly book pioneer, which sold over 75,000 copies while it was in print!

  • Hundreds of full-color photos and illustrations


Check out what manly customers were saying about the original edition!

5.0 out of 5 stars: What a Hoot!
This is truly a great book. From Potato Cannons to instructions on how to play craps, this book has a great deal to offer many different types of people... It’s a shame this book is out of print. It ought to be re-introduced (and even updated.)

5.0 out of 5 stars: Welcome to manhood son!
I have owned this book for several years and reference it on a regular basis in MANLY conversations. I have purchased several copies and give it as a gift only to very deserving "manly" friends and each time they have been eternally grateful. I decided to add a review after making the "Salt Steak" this weekend. It was unbelievably delicious even after wrapping in in newspaper and soaking it in a bucket of water. I also used the opportunity to initiate my 13 year-old son into manhood. What a bonding experience!<%END_COMM_GRP%>

Meet the Author

Brant "Uncle Beez" von Hoffmann — Gentleman Scientist.
This brother plays a steady, mean hand of Texas Hold-‘Em (after chucking 7-Card Stud), flies an ultralight outfitted with electronically triggered wing-tip rockets, builds unexplainable devices in his girlfriend’s garage, and maintains that Miniature Dachshunds qualify as dogs. He serves both as Captain of Team Beez on the Los Angeles Codgers and Executive Director of the Dumb, Noisy, Or Both Corp., but is probably still best known as the undisputed defending champion of the Ozark Turtle Trap Competition. Turnoffs: Mexican fuses.

Todd "Binx" von Hoffmann — Unfunded Philanthropist
Co-Founder of the Dumb, Noisy, Or Both Corp. and the only player on the Los Angeles Codgers to wear the coveted Housedress of Incompetence. He makes Colon Cleaner Chili, enjoys golf cart croquet, long strolls through gun shows, and throws the most dangerous Fourth of July party in Venice, CA., where he haunts the Windward pubs and local welding shop. He lives with his wife, Theo; daughter, Kristina; and many creatures of fur, fin, feather, and scale. His favorite color is rust.

    Not for wimps!

    Men's tastes are different from women's, and the von Hoffmann brothers know it. So to celebrate men and the things men like, they created a compilation just for men.

    This wonderful coffee table book covers a century of men's interests, grouped into categories. These include sports like boxing, racing, football, and the world's strongest man contest. Movies feature strong male characters and heroes, as well as their sexy leading ladies. Hobbies like gambling, fishing, smoking cigars, and drinking - and even pumpkin launching trebuchets - are all in this volume.

    Check out some of these classic movies. Try a cocktail or chili recipe. Laugh at the Darwin Award winner, or offer tribute to man's best friend, the dog. Whatever your taste, if you're looking for a real man's book, Bigger Damner Book of Sheer Manliness is the perfect addition to your collection.

    Awesome gift for any man!!

    I got this book for my dad for his birthday and he loved it!! It has so many 'manly' facts in it and it seemed like a topic for everyone! I'll be getting it for my boyfriend for his birthday now as well! Great gift! If you're a girl you'd enjoy it but not to the full extent that a man would!
