Most dating books are written for women—what a mistake that is. Women know how to date … it’s men who need the help! At last: a blithe, bold, and bawdy guide to building a better boyfriend.

At some point, every guy—player, geek, mama’s boy, “regular Joe”—meets a woman who makes him want to be a boyfriend—a good boyfriend. Problem is, unless he’s had some first-rate training (by a previous girlfriend, a sister, a mom), he probably doesn’t even know what that means. Felicity Huffman and Patricia Wolff come to the rescue with a rollicking and whip-smart handbook to navigating the minefield of male-female relationships.

Directed at men (though, of course, it’s women who’ll buy it, then leave it at their boyfriends’ places—accidentally on purpose), A Practical Handbook for the Boyfriend lays out the manly steps involved in becoming a good boyfriend while still maintaining guy-dignity. It covers issues like:

  • Who decides when you become a boyfriend? (Answer: She does)
  • How to look like you’re listening, even when you’re not (If you’re busted, just say “You’re so pretty, I’m distracted”)
  • Ten things never to say on the first date (#4: “I just did that to freak you out”)
  • Finding the middle ground between too cool (think third grade) and too eager (think surprise visits)
  • Why becoming a good boyfriend is a lot like training for the A-Team.

Filled with humor, ribaldry, common sense, and assorted outdoor skills, A Practical Handbook for the Boyfriend is the next dating guide to dominate the bestseller lists.

    " A remedial course in being a boyfriend. Some things felt like I was learning two many pieces of fruit I have, total, if I have 3 and Liana has 4. Other things, well, I was frankly interested reading (particular, the notes about what you *shouldn't* put up with or ask for). All in all, it was worth a read, just borrow it from someone who has a copy. "

    " A must read/listen for guys! Gives a good generalization of what most women are looking for in a bf. "

    " I felt a little bit like I was cheating with this one as I actually listened to it on audio. But what fun that was. I wanted to listen/read this book to get some good insight for the male characters in my writing. I got that, but I also got a couple dozen laugh out loud moments in every chapter. I wish I could actually get guys to read this. I'm guessing more women will pick it up than men, but if they do, they should definitely coerce the men in their lives to at least skim some of it. This is the new Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, only funny. "
