This is an auction for HOW TO BE A MAN by John Birmingham and Dirk Flinthart. reviews:

"John Birmingham and Dirk Flinthart have learned the hard way how to be civilized, successful and cool. Now they make it easy for the New Zealand male to achieve unimagined heights of sophistication, expertise and personal magnetism. In this book they answer questions many men are just too embarrassed to ask, including:

* How do you swallow a sword?

* How do you dress well without looking like a tit?

* And how can you talk intelligently about Dali, Copernicus and Simone de Beauvoir without sounding like an idiot?

"In tackling these and hundreds of other serious subjects, Birmingham and Flinthart enlist the aid of a wide range of experts."

"FIVE STARS!!! HOW TO BE A MAN is recommended for guys who doubt their masculinity. Some highlights include:

* how to apologize to a woman when you haven't done anything wrong (which is invariably the case, of course)

* how to grovel and beg for mercy and appear to be sincere

* how to cook a gormet meal using canned peas, bacon strips, and tomato sauce

* how to go on a really cheap date and get a massive return on your investment

* how to make your crappy car look more impressive with just one can of latex wall paint

* how to skilfully apply makeup to your manly features

* how to cry, so you can make any woman believe that you are emotional and caring

* how to choose the right socks for every occasion
