Overview

Jim Belushi is a national celebrity who has starred in numerous movies as well as the current hit TV show airing on ABC, According to Jim. His “guy’s guy” take on things has led to a huge following among both men and women who can’t get enough of Jim and his irrepressible take on life. Now he’s sharing his unique perspective with a hilarious new book about dating, marriage, and sex that is sure to hit home with every red-blooded American male, and the women who love them.

Any guy will relate to Belushi’s advice from the school of hard knocks, such as the Big Toe Theory, about how women encroach on a man’s territory, and how to avoid the Pearl Harbor Phenomenon, when women attack without provocation. Belushi has strong opinions on how real men should act, and he relates his ideas with the trademark irreverent humor that has made him famous.

Including sex definitions; a quiz to see if you’re really ready to get married; tips on how to pick up women; and Jim’s list of Critical Things About Men that Can’t Be Found in Woody Allen Movies - this is the book that every guy needs in these turbulent, trying times.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Belushi, most well known for his TV show According to Jim, provides comedic advice on relationships between the sexes. While his brand of love and respect for women is punctuated throughout the book, the section where he off-handedly dismisses centuries of oppression of women in the name of comedy will not sit well with some listeners. The backbone of Belushi's shtick is his rude and crude "manly" perspective on life, much of which consists of flatulence jokes and dirty sex talk. His idea of what it takes to be a "real man" may be entertaining for some, but it will come across as very, very tiring for others. While the author does get serious at times, e.g., discussing his feelings following the tragic death of his brother John and his struggle to make it as an actor, the majority of the book focuses on his comedic take on understanding women. Belushi narrates this audiobook, which also contains music by his band, Jim Belushi and the Sacred Hearts. Fans of his movies and his ABC sitcom will wholeheartedly enjoy his foray into the world of publishing. For public libraries.-Dawn Eckenrode, Daniel A.

Read an Excerpt

Are you a Man? Take this simple quiz to find out!

You are having a fight with your wife/girlfriend/sex partner. You've made your point, you've listened to her side. Now:
a. Let her rehash it, go over each of your points, tell you why she disagrees and/or is made angry by them.
b. Leave the room.
c. Bring up that thing she did New Year's Eve three years ago you are still pissed about.
d. Take her. Right there. Assuming it's not a fight over dinner in a restaurant you want to come back to.

The answer is b. If you don't know why, it is explained in detail later in the book.

You come out of a bar, three guys are slapping around a smaller guy in the parking lot. You:
a. Go back in the bar and tell the bouncer. It's his job.
b. Keep walking. Small guys can be jerks. He probably deserved it.
c. Join in. Either side, it doesn't matter. It's a fight! Hit someone!
d. Stop it. We're all men, facing the same problems, the same fears.

The samurai of Japan had a code, and part of this code is never take longer than seven seconds to make a decision. Your response to this situation is pure instinct, and therefore can't be wrong. You get one point if you chose one and stayed with it, lose two if you changed your mind.

Your wife/girlfriend/kid buys you a book written by a gruff-but-lovable TV actor. You:
a. Ask her how she got the floormats you asked for into such a small package.
b. Thank her, and use it to rest your beer on because you can never find the damn coaster she wants you to use.
c. Thank your lucky stars that all the wisdom you need to lead an honorable, manly life has finally been placed between two covers at a reasonable price.
d. Flip through it, looking for pictures or graphs.

It's c of course. Two points for that one.
