  • Fabulous! The ONLY reason I am not giving this five stars is that the print is a little too small to be comfortable to read.How to select a urinal.How to tie a bowtie.The formula for how many clothes to take on a trip.Umbrella rhythmsCircumcision ;)


  • Much of this is out of date and much of it is just plain rubbish disproved with 2 minutes on google what remains is mostly the author's own opinion given as fact.


  • Thomas Fink’s The Man’s Book is indeed an essential guide for any modern man. Split into broad subject topics, Fink informs men on everything they should know about health, sports/games, women, dress, outdoors, drinking, smoking, cooking, idling, and arts and sciences. Among the numerous topics, a man will learn the benefits of a wet shave versus a dry shave, how to cook a steak, the right wine to serve for any occasion, what suit to wear and when to wear it, what to stock in a kitchen, the [...]


  • This is an amazing study of the modern Man. It’s as eloquent as the books most desirable example, the epitome of man, James Bond. The British undertones of the subjects imply strictness and sensibility, mixed with the writing style, which allow a peculiar humor to surface.The book has no story, which it does not need. It’s as simple as an instruction booklet, yet, I found, the very content in the book to be borderline taboo. To some this book may come as self revealing, as if the nature of s [...]


  • The Man’s Book is a great little book. I found a wealth of information, lots of it useful hints. Chapters include:health sports and games women dress outdoors drinking smoking (! editorial exclamation from Dawn) cooking idling arts and sciences almanac The Man’s Book is fun reading, and a good reference to add to the shelf.


  • Do you know how to tie a bow tie, mix a martini, or make a potato gun? Do you know when to flatter a woman, or where to stand in the men's room? Do you know how to build a tree house, carve a turkey, or start a fire with a soda can? Let a theoretical physicist (Caltech, Cambridge) tell you how. Step 1: just as a real man would, don't take yourself so goddamn seriously, old sport!


  • the sort of book i wish I'd had when i was 16, but still useful now. how to drink, smoke, dress and generally act with a modicum of taste. surprisingly geekish with matchs and diagrams for many activities such as tying ties, and how to pick the right urinal in the gents when one or more are occupied. These things matter!


  • I read this in high school and found it both entertaining and informative. Fink's explanation for why chili is the best man food still convinces me.


  • A great guide to many "generally man things" the authors paternal/fraternal tone is at best old timey masculine and at worst borderline misogynistic.


  • One of the best books I've read in my life. Have read it countless times. A must-have for every man. Tons of subjects! I highly suggest it!!!



  • Useful know how on dress and etiquette for the British male (with quite a bit about James Bond and Ian Fleming). Recommended!
