 "The author inoffensively explores the nature of men and women, the wily ways of seduction, and how contemporary culture has evolved romantic mores and enhanced (and complicated) the dating dance. Manni...deftly plumbs the thorny depths of dating and sexual politics." 
- Publisher's Weekly

Manni has performed that rarest of feats: a frothy, fun, sexy novel that's actually about something. It's a glamorous, blue-skies New York story with characters that will resonate with readers of all types of fiction. By turns, it's romantic, hilarious, and gripping, a story of friendship, love and sex, of men and women and the webs we spin for each other, with edge-of-your-seat business drama working like an undertow, pulling the reader through the pages. A great read, start to finish, and an impressive debut.

The best word to describe this book is "fun". It's fun to read whether you enjoy plots with lots of twists and turns, you live or work in NYC, you work in the advertising, or you just enjoy reading about the differences in the ways that men and women relate to each other.

Max, Roger, Cassidy, and Veronica are all memorable characters in various stages of transition. The book revolves around a very clever plot device that's unlike anything you've seen or read before, which just adds to the fun. I could definitely see this page-turner forming the basis for a movie or TV series down the road!

The Guys' Guy's Guide to Love is a sexy, fun, and, at times, raw look into the minds of men. It's an expose of the inner-workings of 30-something men in NYC and their constant juggle of work, girls, and ego. Although a sort of confirmation of all of the things women suspect (but don't want to believe) of men, it leaves us girls with hope that guys can pull it together. The characters in the novel are unceasingly believable, whether you've dated them, befriended them, or maybe even mirror them yourself. All in all, this is a fun read and finally gives us a guys' perspective on dating and life in fast-paced NYC.

The Guys' Guy's Guide to Love manages to do a lot in a very digestible amount of space. The author exposes the troubles of contemporary gender dynamics with an entertaining and fun story that takes place in the city that has as much personality as the characters in the novel. The book is as refreshing as it is enjoyable. Manni's insight into his characters and knowledge of the world they live in conveys a cool authenticity. The reader can trust what the reality of the plot, and nothing seems forced. A great read for anyone.

I downloaded Guys' Guy's a couple of weeks ago and read it over a series of several late nights, finishing it about 5:00 a.m. on a Tuesday, regretfully remembering that I can no longer pull all-nighters, for whatever enjoyable purposes, and expect to be able to function successfully. Oh well.

There are lots of things I really liked about Guys' Guy's.

The characters really came alive (with their halos and warts). I really wanted to know what was going to happen to whom, and when, and to see who did or who did not get their desserts, just or otherwise.

I was drawn into life in the highbrow advertising industry, which I knew virtually nothing about before.

The book flowed smoothly, with plain language, making it very easy to get sucked in without distraction. The fluidity enhanced the story and plot, making it incredibly easy to manage the cast, the setting, and the transformative nature as the novel progressed.

The plot and action and characters and setting were all great, but what I walked away with that is most valuable is the set of world lessons the book conveys. I don't want to spoil it for new readers, but I will say that the form, style, substance and I guess the mechanics of the book worked very well with the characters, plot and action...and worked well with whatever it was that leads to a set of memorable lessons for anyone.

You don't have to be a New Yorker, an ad executive, or a single looking (or not looking) to enjoy Guys' Guy's. I appreciated that the general messages of the book not only worked in the context of male/female online dating, but also worked (work) in the context of general inter-personal, non-sexual, everyday relationships between and among people of all stripes and varieties and stations.

Format: Paperback
Robert Manni's The Guys' Guy's Guide to Love is one of the most provocative books I've encountered in a while.

The story centers around two hotshot admen, Max Hallyday and his toxic friend Roger Fox. Both of these conventionally handsome single men are struggling to stay afloat in their pressure-cooker jobs, which entail scoring billionaire clients and lucrative ad campaigns. Hungry for power, sex and money - Roger stops at nothing to get ahead - even if it means sneaking around with his best friend's ex and billionaire client.

When Max finds out about Roger's dirty deeds, he decides to write a column warning the women of New York City about the seedy underworld of womanizing men. To gather material for his column, Max interrogates Roger about his dirty sexcapades and uncovers some disturbing yet hilarious pieces of "advice." Here are a couple of snippets from the twisted mind of Roger Fox.

Overall, Manni did a fine job divulging the mindset of single guys on the prowl. But don't be fooled, this book isn't all about scandalous shenanigans and cutthroat power play. This is also a story about self-discovery, hope and redemption. So if you're looking for a fun, sexy romp in the city with some substance, check this one out. Fans of Sex in the City and Mad Men are sure to be entertained. Wouldn't this make a great HBO series?!? Please tell me there's going to be a sequel!
