Paul O'Donnell - Man Up! (367 Classic Skills for The Modern Guy) (2nd Hand Paperback)
From career to relationships and grooming to gaming and more, the guys’ ultimate man-ual for living.
For every guy too intimidated to ask a question for fear of seeming inexperienced and unworldly, here’s a book to answer all (or most) of life’s pressing quandaries: How do you break off a friendship when it’s not working any longer? What should you cook when a date is coming over for dinner? How do you buy a used car and not get totally taken for a ride? How do you stop a charging dog?
In Man Up!, journalist Paul O’Donnell and his team of knowledgeable experts tackle 367 of these tough questions, imparting their advice in short to-the-point answers. Organised thematically, Man Up! is packed with essential advice delivered in prose that is as entertaining to read as it is helpful and clever.
The tips run the gamut - from how to mix up a killer punch for a party to how to throw a punch when there is no other way out. Hip, engaging line drawings help to illustrate the advice, providing more than just sight gags.
For every young man newly embarking on his independent adult life and for a guy at any age wanting to brush up on his skills, Man Up! is like having a trusted friend helping you along the way - except this friend has all the right answers.

"Bought as a fun birthday present for my boyfriend who hates reading. He loved it and is now constantly telling me little hints and tips that he has read about. It is pretty well written and quite comical as well as useful. Brilliant little gift idea." - Google Review.
"This is actually a handy dandy little How-To for anyone, with general adulting tips on skills like how to do minor car repairs & maintenance, how to find and buy a house, how to act at your first "real" job, and so on. Even tips on how to survive in nature. Pretty useful." - Goodreads Review.
