Publishers Description Real Men Don't Get Embarrassed...We Merely Appear Sunburned Ever had your doctor give you valuable diet and exercise advice, then gone out for a cheeseburger and fries to celebrate the fact that you're not dead yet? Do your teens flee the room in dismay when you try to use their jargon to prove that you're still "groovy"? Have you ever been smitten by romance, pulled your wife close to you, and asked her to give you one good reason you should not make passionate love to her at that very moment, only to have her remind you that you are standing in the grocery aisle? Dave Meurer has been through it all. And he's got a tale or two (fifty, actually, in "Mistake It Like a Man" ) that will shed some light, albeit fluorescent, on all kinds of common manly experiences. "Dave Meurer vividly illustrates the humor that is American family life. But be warned: Amid the chuckles, he masterfully weaves some serious food for thought." "-Bill Shepson, Editorial Director, Advance magazine " "Dave Meurer has done it again. He's taken the commonplace and turned it into high comedy. He has the ability to make you giggle gleefully while meditating meaningfully on the spiritual issues that matter most." "-Ellie Kay, Author, speaker, and " America's Family Financial Expert" " Story Behind the Book "Humor is the secret weapon of the nonfiction writer. It is an attempt to say important things in a special way that regular writers aren't getting said in a regular way--or if they are, it's so regular that no one is reading it." "--William Zinsser " "I see my humor writing as guerrilla warfare for the kingdom of God . People let their defenses down when they're laughing, and that's when I can make some serious points about love, grace, conflict resolution, male/female differences, raising kids, and work--all in a nonthreatening way. Even 'nonreading' guys read my books, because everyone wants and needs to laugh." "-- Dave Meurer"

Dave Meurer is the BEST Aug 29, 2007
I have several of his books. He is funny (as in laugh out loud as you are reading kind of funny) or (don't drink milk as you are reading it as you might snort milk up your nose kind of funny!). My wife started reading this book the other day. She was busting up laughing. His books are great for both men and women. Even though he is very funny, his books show a love for his wife and respect too. He doesn't cross the line of disrepecting his family in the name of a laugh. He makes some pretty serious points too. But he always does it in a way that will make you smile!
funny book, cute title Feb 20, 2007
As the leading civilian authority on the U.S. Secret Service (and President Kennedy's interaction with the agency), I was somehwat interested in this book by Dave Meurer (the title had me interested). Well, I purchased it and, other than a couple pages and the title (of course), it is not germane to my area of interest (!) Still, a good book for what it is and who it is intended for. vince palamara
