The MANual by Keith Riegert and Sam KaplanPosted on: June 17, 2013
They say you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. I beg to differ. Take a look at this beauty. If this cover were any more awesome, it would probably melt your face.
Even better, the inside of the book not only meets but dramatically exceeds the high bar set by that cover image.
Honestly, this book should be required reading for tripods across the world. In The MANual, the authors have shown us all what it takes to truly be a MAN, not just another skinny-pants wearing, eyebrow tweezed, goof who figures since he has the appropriate plumbing that’s all it takes.
Reading this book will grow hair on your chest and drop your voice a few octaves. The information here is powerful stuff, guaranteed to cause all panties around you to hit the ground so hard you’d need a shovel to find them again.
Do you know the difference between a sirloin and a rib eye?
How about the difference between whisky and whiskey?
Do you know the proper way to smoke a cigar?
Ever heard of the Guinea Worm? (Not for the faint of heart, that much I can tell you.)
The book is written in a very entertaining way. Imagine, if you will, the coolest guy you can think of. I mean, like if you combined the DNA of Sean Connery, Samuel L. Jackson, and Bruce Willis, then tossed in some Bruce Campbell and Dwayne Johnson. Now picture that coolest of cool dudes narrating lessons about shark attacks, tsunamis, big game hunting, and how Miami was essentially built by cocaine. That’s what it is like reading The MANual.
The segments within the book are man-bite sized, allowing you to easily cover at least a few interesting topics in one sitting, whether you’re sitting out by the fire pit roasting your own wild pig or occupying the mightiest of thrones.
The MANual would be a most excellent gift for the men in your life…provided you feel they possess the necessary testicular fortitude.
