Publisher's Summary

The American guy is not to be confused with a husband, father, hunk, or intellectual, says guy expert Dave Barry. Published just in time (the American guy faces extinction due to feminism, the men's movement, and stricter sanitation laws), this guide gives women helpful advice for understanding Him (or It) and offers men useful tips on remembering the names of their children and other dilemmas of life. As to the truth of his conclusions, Dave says, "Every statement of fact you will read in this book is either based on actual laboratory tests, or else I made it up. But you can trust me. I'm a guy."

    "I laughed all the way through"

    This was one of the funniest books I've ever heard. The tears were rolling from my eyes as I tried to look like I was paying attention to the road while driving. This is definitely NOT the book to hear while you're sitting through a boring lecture or after you've eaten too many stewed prunes! Viva le "guy"!

    "Lots of Laughs"

    You know Dave Barry. If you appreciate Mr. Barry's humor,
    this is among the best.
    I loved it. Most guys I know loved it.
    I think women will love it, but hey, "Who Cares!"
    ...kidding.....honest.....

    "Holy Kumquat, it's abridged!"

    Who in their right mind would abridge a book like this! It's one of the funniest books I've ever read - and I always loan to women friends who are having guy problems, they laugh and they learn. After all, the best humor has a lot of truth in it. Abridging this is like cutting out half of a joke and still expecting to be funny. I guess it's my fault. I was so happy to see this audiobook available that I didn't stop to check to see if it was abridged. Don't do it mon!

    "lost in translation"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I really like Dave but the audible loses something when read by a surrogate. Much funnier when reading myself. Got about half way through and was bored and stopped listening.


    What could Dave Barry have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    maybe a different narator?


    Would you be willing to try another one of John Ritter’s performances?

    maybe

    "Very Funny"

    I listened to this at work and had a hard time not bursting out in laughter.

    "Dissapointing"

    I'm a big Dave Barry fan and was really looking forward to listening to this on a recent long car trip. But it was not as funny as I expected, partly from reading the other reviews before buying this audio book. It was quite boring and I couldn't bring myself to listen to the entire book. However, if you like stupid bathroom humor, you may like this one.
    Sorry, Dave this was not one of your better books.

    "Men are pigs...and Dave makes it funny!"

    I couldn't stop laughing. Dave Barry is great and John Ritter delivers the material very, very well. It's only 3 hours or so, and very lighthearted, so give it a listen if you want to have a fun little diversion.
