Description: Attention, men! 

You guys probably have a low opinion of the kitchen. Maybe it's the worst room in your house -- all that space and no comfortable chair. The beer shelf is cluttered with vegetables, and you don't know where to find the popcorn bowl. When you were home alone for three weeks, the refrigerator began to smell worse than your gym locker. That was it for you and the kitchen. 

But you have to admit your house is a happier place when it smells like good food, like when the woman in your life is baking bread. Let's face it, you love eating. Shouldn't you stop trying to figure out the VCR and plug in the can opener? Stop tuning the engine and start manhandling hamburger meat? 

This book is for all you kitchen-shy guys who've gotten away with murder. Let's be honest now, you don't even know how to cook. Your mother probably didn't teach you any of the ground rules. You'll have to learn by doing, and you'll be surprised how easy it is to eat well without working very hard. Cooking will score you big points. The simplest of beef stews, even the shelf variety, goes a long way toward making your friends and family appreciate you. It's also the easiest way to shut up the Boy Scouts when your wife's got the flu. 

Tough Guys Don't Dice is the story behind survival: breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and the four food groups. This isn't your regular cookbook, where they assume you know how to separate egg yolks from whites. It focuses on the basics: how to fend for yourself when you're stood up in the kitchen four nights running. Wouldn't you rather read this book than call your mother? 

You guys don't have to be cooking-impaired forever. Consider you have a lot to learn and start getting those pans dirty. Soon you'll be making good solid food and plenty of it. 


Condition: Good condition with light shelf wear including a crease in the jacket.
