Felicity Huffman won an Emmy in 2005 for her portrayal of Lynette Scavo on TV's hit series Desperate Housewives. She also received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in the same role. Her next film, Transamerica, will be released in theaters in early 2006, and her performance won her the Best Actress Award at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival. Huffman has appeared in a number of feature films, television shows, and plays. She resides in Los Angeles with her husband, actor/director William H. Macy and their two daughters. Patricia Wolff is a producer of both movies and plays. Wolff produced the world premiere of Mamet's play Oleanna off-Broadway as well as the film adaptation, and co-produced the movie Bring It On starring Kirsten Dunst and is a founding member of the Atlantic Theater Company. Patricia lives in Los Angeles with her son, Jack, and is an associate producer with Center Theatre Group.
Does it take a Desperate Housewife (Huffman) and a theatrical producer (Wolff) to save potential and current boyfriends from themselves? Perhaps. In this blunt and funny primer for clueless males, narrator Shelley Frasier delivers the sometimes bawdy, irreverent, and even gross content without a hitch. The work is intended mostly for the All-American male--one who wouldnt touch chardonnay or quiche, who is basically incapable of a trace of suaveness or intellectualism, and who is stuck in a post-frat-house mentality. Still, there are some truths that every male can use in his relationships, though feminists may cringe at the traditional gender positioning the authors assume. But if one takes it in the spirit intended, this handbook is a fun romp through meat-and-potatoes American love.

While I agree with many of the reviews that this book is rich, funny (don't take it too seriously), stylish, and deep, I find it disappointingly traditional. Read morePublished on August 7, 2010 by Peder
