Overview

For thousands of years, women have asked themselves: What is the deal with guys, anyway? What are they thinking? The answer, of course, is: virtually nothing. But that has not stopped Dave Barry from writing an entire book about them, dealing frankly and semi-thoroughly with such important guy issues as:

  • Scratching
  • Why the average guy can remember who won the 1960 World Series but not necessarily the names of all his children
  • Why guys cannot simultaneously think and look at breasts
  • Secret guy orgasm-delaying techniques, including the Margaret Thatcher Method
  • Why guys prefer to believe that there is no such thing as a "prostate"

This book sounded so funny based on the other reviews; but when I got it, things were quite to the contrary. It was a little bit funny but really not worth your time or money.

If you read in public, get ready to be embarrassed. This book will start uncontrollable laughter to the point of tears.

I've read this book several times and it always makes me laugh. (There's nothing like sitting on the NY subway, reading an book, and laughing like an idiot with everyone looking at you.) Dave Barry has truly boiled down the sexes, especially males, to their essences. The chapter on men's public bathroom etiquette is particular hysterical...and true.

This is one of the, if not the, funniest book I ever read. I was laughing aloud in public and was in tears at some points. If you enjoy Dave Barry, and you either are a guy or know one, you'll love this book.
