Bruce Cameron's columns have always been a cross between Dave Barry and Erma Bombeck.These are all the same themes covered by the articles over the last five or so years.The book is almost like a compilation of his old columns.And then he tells you what to do on the date and how to escalate a woman.Lots of greatbody language advice as well as how to look good even if you are just an average Joe.
