Book description
For thousands of years, women have asked themselves: What is the deal with guys, anyway? What are they thinking? The answer, of course, is: virtually nothing. But that has not stopped Dave Barry from writing an entire book about them, dealing frankly and semi-thoroughly with such important guy issues as: - Scratching - Why the average guy can remember who won the 1960 World Series but not necessarily the names of all his children - Why guys cannot simultaneously think and look at breasts - Secret guy orgasm-delaying techniques, including the Margaret Thatcher ...
