A lighthearted look at the average life of the adult middle-class man, as told using laugh-out-loud charts, graphs, and a PowerPoint-style format
Over 30? Married? Children? Desk job? Out of shape? Stressed? Time poor? Jaded? Is this you? If so, here are some random things you might learn from Man vs Life. That whether we like it or not, our function in life is to facilitate family life (often grudgingly, i.e. "I’m not a taxi you know" or "you're only nice to me when you want money"). That our children tell us we "need to take a chill pill." That we all like pork belly and duck—and we will happily pick something off the floor to eat it if we feel it was only dropped in the last 48 hours. That love, sex, and friendship are all possible at once, but it's a big ask over a long period of time. That two days' sick leave is more believable than one. Taking a humorous look at the psyche of the married man in his 30s and 40s, who works in an office and is overrun by children and financial stress, this book gently mocks his domestic situation and the crises he faces on a daily basis.
