Excellent Listien

I'm quite a fan of 'Queer Eye' and I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook.

All five of the guys get anything between half an hour to an hour to talk about their particular area. They also answer some interesting questions about their background.

Anyway, I loved it and would thoroughly recommend it to any man who'd like to make themselves better.

The most entertaining selections I've made

My wife and I listened to it on a road trip and were howling with laughter. We didn't want to arrive at our destination as the book wasn't finished.

Most the tips were on things you wouldn't think of asking about - such as the best way to shave, how to buy a suit and how a waiter is actually your friend. Some I really didn't need to know - my man bush can do without a trim. I can trim my unibrow, but my wife says its not that big a deal to her. Other things make you thinK - maybe I should exfoliate - never considered it before.

This would be a great CD couples to listen to and talk about before getting married. You'd find out things about each other, you wouldn't otherwise know for 20 years, if ever.

The only complaint about the book is it is a bit condescending towards men, but not enough that it should stop anyone from buying it. My wife just proof read this and says that that is what makes it so funny for women to listen to.
