Do You Need a Father's Day Gift?


If you are reading this, then you probably like books. You are also, judging by the pictures of my followers, probably a woman. This book isn't for you, but it would make a great Father's Day gift for the man in your life. The giveaway is subject to the usual Hatchette conditions--US or Canada mailing address, no PO boxes. If you win elsewhere, please allow someone else to win this one. To win, please leave a comment, with your email address. For an additional entry, blog about this contest, and leave me a comment linking to your entry. For another entry, leave another comment giving the name of a book I have reviewed here that you think your guy would like. I'll draw 5 winners on May 20, so hopefully you'll have the book for Father's Day.

Here is the product description:

Being modern and manly in today's world isn't always easy. Do you know how to tie a bow-tie, mix a martini, or make a potato gun?Do you know when to get married and how to break up, or the difference between a bock beer and a bitter?Do you know which urinal to choose or how to start a fire with a Coke can?The answers to every man's burning questions are within these pages, from the morning wet shave to the whiskey night-cap, from hunting deer with a .30-06 to wooing women like 007. At a time when the sexes are muddled and masculinity is marginalized, THE MAN'S BOOK unabashedlycelebrates maleness. Organized by subject in a man-logical way, it's the go-to guide for anyone with a Y chromosome. About the AuthorThomas Fink grew up in New York and Texas. He is a theoretical physicist and writer and lives in London. He designed THE MAN'S BOOK himself. He is a man.

  3. Since you asked us to comment on another book that you think our man would enjoy reading for another entry in the giveaway contest, I think that my husband would enjoy reading The Blood of Lambs. My husband loves to read as much as I do. He likes books about religion, history, politics and/or military so I think that the Blood of Lambs is a book that he would definitely read.
