A 'dangerous book for men' - how to embrace life to the full and how to be your own man.

Call yourself a man You do Do you even know what a real man is Are you a six foot one Adonis who wears all the latest fashions, moisturises regularly, visits spas for pleasure and never does anything wrong Or do you drink twenty pints every Friday night, guzzle a kebab on the way home and then fart yourself to sleep

It's time to stop being the man everyone expects you to be and be the one you want to be. And while you're at it, why not discover the practical skills a real man should have: from hot-wiring a car to hiding a dead body, how to disappear without trace in less than 24 hours, to unarmed combat. Add in tips on love, sex, money and fatherhood and you have a book tells you everything you need to know about being a man. Fast-paced and funny this is the ultimate bible for the modern man.
