MANLY MAN 4 Book "QUICKIE" Giveaway

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!

PLEASE NOTE!

As Anna, from Hachette Book Group so nicely put it, these "MANLY MAN" books of humor and sports are not for the faint of heart. If you have delicate sensibilities and a mild sense of humor, this truly is NOT the Giveaway for you. If you can laugh at religious irreverence, somewhat lewd suggestions, and a potty-mouthed rant, then perhaps I've got just the books for you.

MANLY MAN
IN TIME FOR
FATHER'S DAY!

4 BOOK QUICKIE
GIVEAWAY


I HAVE 5 COPIES OF THE FOLLOWING BOOKS TO GIVE AWAY THANKS TO ANNA AT HACHETTE BOOK GROUP. THIS IS A QUICKIE GIVEAWAY AS YOU HAVE ONLY ONE WEEK TO ENTER AND TO WAIT TO SEE IF YOU WIN!
WAYS TO ENTER WILL FOLLOW THE DESCRIPTIONS! READ CAREFULLY!


HOW TO PROFIT FROM THE COMING RAPTURE
GETTING AHEAD WHEN YOU'RE LEFT BEHIND
by Ellis Weiner, Barbara Davilman, & Steve and Evie Levy

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Are the end times near? Is the Rapture really just around the corner? Could Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson possibly be
right? About 1 billion people among us believe, yes, absolutely.
And that means one thing: investment opportunities!
For those who are not as expertly versed in the Book of Revelation, Ellis Weiner and Barbara Davilman, authors of the bestselling Yiddish with Dick and Jane, helpfully offer both illumination and advice: What exactly is the Rapture, anyway? How is it different from the Tribulation? Who are the Antichrist, the Four Horsemen, and the 144,000 male virgins, and what do they want? And, most important, how can I make money during the 7 years of societal breakdown before Armaggedon?
Taking the familiar form of a how-to investment guide, HOW TO PROFIT FROM THE COMING RAPTURE instructs those readers who will certainly be left behind (Jews, Catholics, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, less ardent Protestants, and many more) on how to exploit the inevitable demise of the world in order to make a tidy profit. Sure, the rivers and seas will run with blood, locusts will swarm, mountains will move all over the place, and famine will strike. But for the
five billion of us left behind, the post-Rapture world will be a time of even more unique investment opportunities.

MEN WITH BALLS
THE PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE'S HANDBOOK
By Drew Magary

ABOUT THE BOOK: This will be the very last book you ever read. Because after you have read this book, you, Good Sir, will know how to be a pro athlete. And pro athletes don't need books. Or strong family bonds. Or any of that stupid crap. Not when they have ready access to millions of dollars and scores of smoking hot chicks with questionable judgment.

This book will be all you require to cast aside your boring life as some jackass who cruises around bookstores hoping to score grad-school trim. With Men with Balls, you will learn how to:

  • Showboat using classical pantomime techniques
  • Figure out whether or not a stripper actually fancies you
  • Emotionally cope from the emotional fallout of rookie year hazing games
  • Find out which free locker room amphetamines will give you a shot of energy, and which will cause you to run down terrified schoolchildren with your Escalade (NOTE: Some do both)
  • Avoid media scrutiny by directing beat writers and columnists to the nearest hot buffet
So grab your balls, bookboy. You're about to become a home-run hitting, steroid-injecting, angry-orgy-having Turbostud. They're gonna need a whole ocean just to wash your jock.

IS IT JUST ME OR IS EVERYTHING SHIT? Insanely Annoying Modern Things By Steve Lowe, Alan McArthur, Brendan Hay

ABOUT THE BOOK:
An encyclopedic attack on modern culture so hilariously bitter that it actually becomes uplifting. Based on two runaway UK bestsellers, this new American edition has been ingeniously adapted and features exclusive new material for US audiences by Brendan Hay, a former Daily Show headline producer and contributing writer to America: The Book.

If you hate chick lit, Che Guevara merchandise, pop Kabbalah, cosmetic-surgery-gone-wrong-as-tv-programming, DVDs with ads you can't skip, or any of a few hundred other insanely annoying modern things, then this book will finally lend creedence to your frustrations.

Say NO to the awful ideas, terrible people, useless products, and infuriating doublespeak that increasingly dominates our lives. Never before has there been a book so completely full of shit.

Clearly, it isn't just you...

THE MAN'S BOOK The Essential Guide for the Modern Man
BY THOMAS FINK

ABOUT THE BOOK:
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

There is nothing delicate about my sense of humor. I'd like to win How To Profit From The Upcoming Rapture.I've heard about this one and would like to check it out. I've already read the 3rd one and passed it on to my son. I will most likely share these with him also as he gets his sense of humor from me.
