A Practical Handbook for the Boyfriend
The Authors: Actress Felicity Huffman is best known for playing working mom Lynette on "Desperate Housewives"; Patricia Wolff is a playwright. Both are hilarious.
The Hook: This is a relationship book for guys, and it has the vintage-style noir illustrations to prove it.
Who Should Buy: Those who look for laughs with their relationship advice. But let's face it: This book may be "for the boyfriend," but women will be the ones buying it for their boyfriends or brothers (or themselves).
Sample Quote: "A man's emotional checklist is pretty basic: Am I hungry? Am I sleepy? Am I horny? If he's content in all three areas, he's pretty much okay. A woman's emotional checklist reads more like a Russian novel. It's long, complicated, confusing, and you spend a lot of time trying to keep the characters straight."
