City Book Review
"They may have been mad, but no one can deny men knew what to wear in the ’50s and ’60s. More than just gorgeous, the studs gracing these pages are dapper to boot, and that’s the recipe for some delicious Man Candy!
"This is the kind of book that you’ll want to pick up again and again."

BJ Gallagher, author of Friends Are Everything
"This confection of a book is like candytart, satisfying, and so much sweeter when it is shared. A cheeky homage to the unbreakable bonds between women."

From the Back Cover
In this gluten-free, low-carb world, gals like us need a little stress-reducing indulgence. We deserve some Man Candy! And while this confection has zero calories, it is plenty sweet. Retro style was never hotter than the mod decades, when the men were mad and the suits were plaid. These groovy gals and natty guys are the coolest cats around. Reeda Joseph, vintage archivist and collector of rarities, has gathered up the very best the fifties and sixties have to offer, with images that will inspire you to pick up some bongos and twist the night away.
Top Customer Reviews
While I didn’t intend it to, this small, gift-size book did tug me toward serious thoughts, also. Reflecting the prevalent marketing of the 1950s and 1960s, all the men are white. The author could have written a bunch of words about how unbalanced our societal view of beauty was fifty years ago. Kudos to her for knowing that a (lack of a) picture is, indeed, worth a thousand critical words.
The men themselves are beautiful. I loved the impeccable cleanliness of the men, the fun settings of the photographs, and the marvelous sweaters.
I did wonder what made the author decide to create this book. Then I realized that by not telling me all about herself or the men, the book is free to be whatever I need it to be on any given day. How delightful!
