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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 2/14/2014

    " I really enjoyed reading this book. It was very funny and entertaining. One of the bests I've read this year. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brett | 2/12/2014

    " I've been reading Dave Barry since middle school, and in the last 20 years, his formula doesn't seem to have changed a whole lot. All of his books are entertaining diversions, though pretty much empty calories when all is said and done. This one is a sort of tribute to being a guy, which in Barry's mind is a dorky yet endearing quality that embraces many of the familiar cliches of what it is to be male. If you've read his humor columns, the style here is very similar. A light read that may cause occasional laughing out loud, but not something that is likely to stay with you long after you've finished. I'm not sure what kind of appeal this book would have to the non-guy gender, but I'm guessing not a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marilyn | 2/3/2014

    " Stop whatever you're doing and go get this book. I passed it around on a group of 50 trip to London and Paris. The readers were LITERALLY rolling in the aisles of the plane! They had stewardesses laughing as they read. Heck of a lot of fun and TOO true! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikki | 1/29/2014

    " Any book that makes me laugh so hard that I start crying is a win for me. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 1/24/2014

    " I think this book further reinforced "guy" stereotypes for me when I read it in college. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob | 1/19/2014

    " Enjoyed the autdio book from Tulsa to Tucumcari, watching my beloved guffawing in the passenger seat.... :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew Collins | 1/17/2014

    " Amazing book, loved it. It was hilarious and most of the time, completely true. Since I listened to it, it was more like a comedy bit. I don't think I could listen to the whole thing again for a long while, though I would gladly re-listen to certain parts over and over again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 1/5/2014

    " This one had me laughing out loud. There were some parts were I said, "oh dear" but only twice. It was easy to read and so much fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 1/5/2014

    " "Norman, did Elane every have a horse?" A+ "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James M. | 12/22/2013

    " all women should read this one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Anthony | 11/30/2013

    " Not allowed to read this one in bed. Too much laughing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Spideygirl | 11/22/2013

    " Humorous book explaining the fact that 'boys will be boys'. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 11/17/2013

    " I remember reading this book years ago. I was in a restaurant, by myself, reading the first few chapters. I was laughing so hard (outloud - wheezing, gasping, tears running down my face) at the "guy quiz" questions several people asked what I was reading. Hope they bought the book too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 11/15/2013

    " This doesn't really break any new ground in humor about gender roles, but it is funny. I enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shraddha Gupta | 10/17/2013

    " My friend borrowed it from me. A few hours later I found her sitting in the corridor with this big group from class, everyone laughing too loudly for college. I swear I am not making this up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly Star | 7/31/2013

    " This is just really funny "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christie | 7/17/2013

    " Whoa! Serious laugh-out-loud material. And NO, it does NOT pass the modern prude test. But it's Dave Barry, and he's hilarious! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie Brock | 5/18/2013

    " Illuminating! A nice Xmas gift, nice light reading. Many laughs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 4/23/2013

    " This is what me and my roommates read to better understand the male mind "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LS | 12/7/2012

    " Have this in audio book format. Incredibly funny; or maybe it's because the reader is great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ami Antonio | 11/29/2012

    " It's been a long time since I've read this, but I remember it being HYSTERICAL. A great gift to give to favorite girlfriend. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Void lon iXaarii | 11/16/2012

    " quite funny in it's differentiation between men and guys :)) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JW | 10/29/2012

    " Very Funny book, if you like Dave Barry and his unique insight into every day life. I recommend it for women to read so that they understand that men are, well rather simple. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha | 4/10/2012

    " A very enjoyable read out loud book for Ladies Weekend! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 2/8/2012

    " This was purchased for me as a gift by a male friend. It was intended as an instruction manual. There were plenty of places where I laughed out loud, but I just didn't think it was as good as some of Dave Barry's other work. Of course, he would probably say that's because I'm not a guy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Phillip | 12/11/2011

    " The funny passages/portions of the book were few and far between. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colleen | 11/26/2011

    " This is one of the funniest (but true) books ever written. I give this book away often...I have even been known to read it out loud to people! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rakel | 10/11/2011

    " This book is ridiculous and funny. I read it again recently and actually laughed out loud. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samuel | 9/6/2011

    " Dave Barry is one of those guys who can take the obvious and what we already know and make it really funny. Worth the quick read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott | 8/29/2011

    " If you go to the dictionary to look up "ROTFLMAO," you'll see a picture of this book. One of the funniest (and most accurate) books I've ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doug | 6/18/2011

    " Dave Barry - you've just got to read a couple of his humor essays. Just hilarious. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shraddha | 6/7/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginni | 2/27/2011

    " A pretty darn good laugh most of the way through. Just what I needed in these tough political times. The last chapter was a bit too stupid to get more than a smirk out of me. I admire Barry for telling the God's honest truth about men--I mean guys! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 12/30/2010

    " Its the things people know (atleast guys themselves), but from a funny angle.
    like how guys take the most farapart urinals and things :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LS | 12/8/2010

    " Have this in audio book format. Incredibly funny; or maybe it's because the reader is great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe | 12/7/2010

    " First book that I have ever repeatedly laughed out loud to! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mel | 8/20/2010

    " I adore Dave Barry - always have. This particular book is one my favourites. The story of Roger and Elaine is one of the funniest things I have ever read and if you read nothing else by Dave Barry - ever - then at least seek out those few pages. You won't be sorry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Moira | 3/28/2010

    " One of the funniest guys ever! Hey, Mass Market Paperback would be an excellent name for a band... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Renee | 3/3/2010

    " Dave Barry is hilarious. This dated, clichéd take on gender, not so much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/29/2010

    " Hysterically funny. Dave Barry is a master of wit; his childish humor is uncannily mature. Reading for fun starts here. Sit down with this book and laugh out loud! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/17/2010

    " Illuminating! A nice Xmas gift, nice light reading. Many laughs. "

    " Took about 4 years to read on the porcelain bookshelf. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Reaganstar | 11/4/2009

    " Hilarious Book, Wow when my Bf picked this up I just rolled my eyes but the comedic genius of Dave Barry when describing guys and there "issues" is great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julio | 10/22/2009

    " This book is hilarious. The way he say's things and the way he try's to put things in perspective for you is just funny. But i think you should be 13 and older to read this book because some of the things he says shouldn't be heard by little kids. "
