Publisher's Summary

In the best-selling tradition of Clarkson and Moyles, this is TV and Radio personality Christian O'Connell's take on all things men.

For ten years Christian has dispensed his wisdom and advice to millions of lucky radio listeners on every topic conceivable. It was when he saw his wife reading and laughing at a book called How to Kill Your Husband that he realised he had to write this book.

In his sage opinion, men need to be saved from themselves. Women need to understand men better and stop hating them, and men need to make sense of why they are the way they are.

This book reveals some hard but hilarious truths about the male race. Who do men actually look to for inspiration? The Hoff? Simon Cowell? James Blunt? Why do men behave in that odd way at barbecues? Why can a man have his heart broken a thousand times by his football team and yet still forgive them more than he would a woman?

With his outspoken humour and his ironic take on life, Christian explores male-dom, celebrating all that is great about being a man and unravelling the mysteries of masculinity that have stumped women for centuries.

Includes:

  • Superheroes - all of them let us down. Here's why.
  • The Ultimate History of Men...from caves to Ikea.
  • The Man Test - a highly unscientific flow chart to determine just how confused you are right now.
  • The Perfect Man - if Apple designed men
  • Men and Cooking - the most important part of nutrition: TV snacks.
  • What We Want from Women - show up naked...and bring beer.
  • Rules and Codes - the unwritten, never discussed rules about how to behave in bathrooms, cars, and out and about
  • Men and Sex: "Touch them there and they love it."
  • Imagine a World Without Us - heaven or hell?
  • Communication - friend and foe
  • What's the Point of Us? - enough with the slagging off. Here's what we rule at....

      "heard it all before"
      What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

      better content, tired old re-hashed material.... different narrator, dull dull delivery


      Would you be willing to try another one of Christian O'Connell’s performances?

      no


      You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

      not really.


      Any additional comments?

      very disappointed especially after reading all the positive reviews.if you have an ounce of sophistication you'll find this very tired and dull.

      "Don't bother, its all cliches."

      Complete drivel.
      I didn't need to know, that some people might take offense if you look at them whilst using a urinal in a public toilet.
      Then there is the cliche of the man in charge of the barbeque.
      The most important thing to me is not that I have my own chair in the living room.
      Naturally he also listed who would be in his ideal football team...

      You don't need this guy to tell you what is important in your life.
