The Manual by Keith Riegert and Sam Kaplan

The MANual

By Keith Riegert, Sam Kaplan

So you’ve decided to go in search of your manhood. Good for you. The MANual “dishes out advice and anecdotes on the world of manly mandom.” (The Boston Herald)


Take a journey through the manliest man facts of all human history in this funny, fascinating and informative tome of trivia, death-defying stories and need-to-know information from picking the perfect cigar to surviving a shark attack. Inside, you’ll find information all about:


How to throw a Mike Tyson-style uppercut
The differences between whiskey, whisky, bourbon and Scotch
How the U.S. Government created the Las Vegas Strip
What big-game hunting was like … 10,000 years ago
How opium bought Hong Kong and cocaine built Miami


Saddle up, dive in, prepare for takeoff and mix a good drink (and your metaphors) because The MANual is about to knock your work boots off.
