Giveaway: The Man's Book by Thomas Fink (5 Winners)

The wonderful people at Hachette Book Group are helping me give away five copies of The Man's Book by Thomas Fink! The books will be shipped directly from the publisher.

From the Publisher:
Being modern and manly in today's world isn't always easy.

Do you know how to tie a bow-tie, mix a martini, or make a potato gun?

Do you know when to get married and how to break up, or the difference between a bock beer and a bitter?

Do you know which urinal to choose or how to start a fire with a Coke can?

The answers to every man's burning questions are within these pages, from the morning wet shave to the whiskey night-cap, from hunting deer with a .30-06 to wooing women like 007. At a time when the sexes are muddled and masculinity is marginalized, THE MAN'S BOOK unabashedly celebrates maleness. Organized by subject in a man-logical way, it's the go-to guide for anyone with a Y chromosome.

To be included in the giveaway:
1. Leave a creative comment here and tell me something great about a man in your life (boyfriend, spouse, son, father, grandfather, boss), include your email (1 entry daily)
2. Leave a comment on the review (coming soon) (1 entry)
3. Post a link to the giveaway on your blog and report it here (1 entry)
4. Become a follower and leave a comment here (or "remind" me you are already a follower so I know you want to be included in this giveaway) (1 entry)

The drawing will be held June 30th. Winners: I will send you each an email, you will need to reply with your address so I can forward it to the publisher or send the book directly to you. In the event that a winner does not respond, I will go to the next name in the drawing and notify them.

This giveaway is open to residents within the United States and Canada, but books will NOT be shipped to PO Boxes.

My husband and I have been married for almost 38 years. He still sends me flowers and brings little surprises home for me. Last week, he gave me a beanie-type stuffed bear that is an I Love You! bear. It is sitting on my desk next to my computer.

My husband and I will be married 25 years on May 26th. He is a very caring and sincere man. He has never forgotten my birthday or anniversary. He is always ready to help do the dishes and always helped when our twin boys and daughter were little. He would change diapers alot! He's one of the good guys!

Rita M said...

My husband of 40 years is the best! He has a very dry sense of humor, a passion for USC football and is an awesome husband & dad.

My father had to change some of his travel plans when it was decided that I was going to go with him because due to a health issue I am unable to fly. He was accepting of the fact that we had to go by train and by boat to our destinations.

My father also was at the hospital every day when my sister was going through her cancer treatment.

He is there for each of his 7 kids and also for each of his 10 grandchildren. He is there for his 6 in-law children as well.

My father instilled a belief in honesty, no matter what. He refused to go down to the local theater (walking distance) after my oldest brother ran home to tell him his name had been drawn as a cash winner (during the depression) because you needed to be there during the drawing and it was dishonest to pretend he had been there when they drew his name.

My hubby is the ultimate fixer! He can fix absolutely anything. When he was fixing up our camping trailer, he actually stiched all the seatcovers and cushions himself as well as replacing all the walls and floors!

My dad is another wonderful man in my life. He always makes time to play with his grandson and has adopted my husband as a son of his own. I love to just sit and chat with him; we both love to learn new things so it's always an enlightening conversation!

Kathryn said...

My brothers are wonderful men in my life as well. Now that we're all adults, I get the chance to really appreciate them as people and not as kids. We always have conversations filled with laughter!

My mechanic is great. He not only fixes my car, but he tells me how much it's going to cost, to the dime, before he lifts a wrench. Then he does something strange...Even if it puts him thousands of dollars in the hole, he fixes it at the price he stated.

Rita M said...

Super Husband, Super Giveaway!

Kathryn said...

I love that my husband is always willing to help someone with a problem. He'll stop and help someone stuck in the winter, boost up a stalled car, or whatever is needed to help out someone stranded!

My creative, innovative and outdoorsy husband has brought such joy to my life! But the best thing of all about him is that he gave me such a wonderful family; a beautiful son and another child on the way for us both to treasure and cherish!

My father was a hard worker, who never skipped a day while he was alive-except to attend to family functions, such as weddings, funerals, reunions, and the like.

Kathryn said...

My husband is always willing to try something new. I'm an avid reader, but he's never been that interested in reading. At his current job, he's started taking a book to read during slow periods, and he's loving it!

Kathryn said...

I love that my son is so similar to me. Always moving, always looking for something new, always full of smiles and energy...even at his most mischevious he makes every day a joy!

My husband is the best man ever - he just had surgery days ago and he's still concerned with making sure he's helping around the house. I keep telling him to relax and lay down but when he sees I'm cleaning or the like, he always tries to help. He is the most amazing person, I love him so much.

My father is amazing in his consideration for his family. We were raised very outdoorsy, which means I have a deep respect of nature and a lot more physical strength to call on than most women. Even though my dad knows that, he would never consider asking me to help him move or lift things. It's just not in his makeup; he was raised in a different time and wouldn't dream of asking his daughter to do any kind of heavy work.

My half-brother is eighteen, and so puts on a typical "tough-guy" show, but he is actually the kindest and most caring person imaginable. He's always willing to spend some time playing with my son and he's rescued a few abused animals in the last year.

My dad is wonderful because he puts up with the crazy life of being a v.p. at his company, a semi-pro poker player, as well as dad to an Autistic adult, 2 8 year old boys (one who is severely ADHD), and 2 tween/teen girls!

My boyfriend is just the most amazing person. He tries really hard to take care of me, and its hard right now because we are both struggling with money. But he still makes all the efforts in the world to take me out, and make me feel special.

If I had made a list of qualities I would want in a son in law, I could not have come up with a person half as amazing as Jason! I could not begin to tell all of his wonderful qualities, but I can tell you our family has been truly blessed! Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this giveaway!
