Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While it does not quite deliver the "do no harm" promised in the title, this is good. Gooooood even. Lawyer and founder of the titular dot.com, Arnot presents this wedding planner for boys that contains just enough quick topical coverage to make you look like you're involved and interested. Coverage includes a groom's specific tasks (e.g., arranging transportation, getting the license, and getting a terrible haircut four hours before the ceremony) and also shared tasks like mailing invitations and making the guest list. The "Dealing with Bridezilla" chapter is useful in and of itself. If you're pretty uninvolved with planning the whole nuptial thing, this will walk you through the basics. Do a good job at everything here, including "Lookin' Good on Weddin' Day," and you'll be A-OK.Alternate Take: Jonathan Bousfield & Dan Richardson's The Rough Guide to Bulgaria 6. Not ready to get hitched? Run away to Bulgaria! In the southwest region, you might find employment in Belovo, "a frumpy-looking town which rejoices in being the toilet-paper capital of the Balkans." If you do run, brother, Bulgaria might not be far enough.—Douglas Lord, "Books for Dudes," BookSmack! 8/5/10

Meet the Author

Michael Arnot (New York, NY) was a typical groom—he didn't care about wedding flowers, wedding songs, and nice frilly invitations. When his beautiful bride asked him to make a wedding speech, however, he realized there were no wedding resources for men available online. Being an entrepreneurial type, Michael set out to create a man's guide to weddings and the result is GroomGroove.com, the Web's #1 wedding and engagement guide for men. A lawyer by training (and, by virtue of his work with GroomGroove.com, forever a groom), he, his bridezilla-turned-wife, and son live happily ever after in New York.
