What you would have said had you thought of it last night at the bar.
Meet Man: He’s witty, carefree, and probably not sober. He's Dean Martin meets Jack Benny, Don Draper, and Jack Donaghy.  He imparts upon readers his clever, unabashed musings of romance, party culture, and bachelorhood. The life of the party, the collected contemplations in Man v. Liver will amuse and inform aspiring connoisseurs of class.

Man v. Liver is a short and funny read about Man, who likes to share some alcohol-fueled wisdom. This is not high-brow reading, of course, and if you have a problem with the blatant alcoholism of Man then you probably shouldn’t be reading this book.

On the other hand, if you like to laugh at someone’s drunken antics, and believe that the truth really does come out when someone is drinking then you just may like this book. I know I did! I spent a lot of time giggling my way through this, and I can definitely think of a few people who would love to get this book as a gift. Maybe with a bottle of alcohol attached.

My favourite piece of wisdom from Man came near the start of the book: “Know what makes a great drinking game? Drinking.” I almost choked on my drink (it was tea, mind you, but still). I laughed and immediately wanted to buy copies for my friends. I hope you like it, too.

    I think I need a little more humor in my life – I have been reading very serious books lately. I’m going to see if I can find this!
