How to Be a Man

by Dirk Flinthart
John Birmingham and Dirk Flinthart have learned the hard way how to be civilized, successful and cool. Now they make it easy for the uninitiated Australian 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, How do you swallow a sword? How do you dress well without looking like a complete goose? And how do you talk intelligently about Salvador Dali, Copernicus and Simone de Beauvoir without sounding like a pompous git?

In tackling these and hundreds of other seirous subjects, Birmingham and Flinthart enlist the aid of experts as diverse as Alex Buzo, Paul Barry, Len Evans and Helen Wellings.
