The Maxims of Manhood isn't as outrageously funny (or perhaps as embellished) as something like I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell , but it's well-crafted, entertaining, and true to life. As the sub-title indicates, the book includes "100 rules every real man must live by", and below are some partial examples of what you'll find among the maxims: Your dog must be larger than a toaster. Tip well. Never use the word "blossom." Know how to chug a beer (and know that you shouldn't). Always hold the door.Never use emoticons. The Maxims of Manhood is definitely light reading and targeted at men, but it's funny and I recommend it.
