Publisher's Summary

In the best-selling tradition of Clarkson and Moyles, this is TV and Radio personality Christian O'Connell's take on all things men.For ten years Christian has dispensed his wisdom and advice to millions of lucky radio listeners on every topic conceivable. It was when he saw his wife reading and laughing at a book called How to Kill Your Husband that he realised he had to write this book.In his sage opinion, men need to be saved from themselves. Women need to understand men better and stop hating them, and men need to make sense of why they are the way they are.This book reveals some hard but hilarious truths about the male race. Who do men actually look to for inspiration? The Hoff? Simon Cowell? James Blunt? Why do men behave in that odd way at barbecues? Why can a man have his heart broken a thousand times by his football team and yet still forgive them more than he would a woman? With his outspoken humour and his ironic take on life, Christian explores male-dom, celebrating all that is great about being a man and unravelling the mysteries of masculinity that have stumped women for centuries.Includes:

heard it all before

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

better content, tired old re-hashed material.... different narrator, dull dull delivery

Would you be willing to try another one of Christian O'Connell’s performances?
