About the Author

Karl Marks is a regular performer in the West Coast comedy circuit, headlining at clubs such as the Improv, Friars Club, and Icehouse. Using the stage as his soapbox, he has successfully offended thousands of hateful women to the raucous applause of drunken men. His material spawns from both time spent at the U. of Southern California, where he double majored in public intoxication and freshman sorority girls, and his many years navigating the thankless, Godforsaken prostitution ring better know as the Los Angeles dating scene. His mother and three sisters should be proud.

As an attorney, Dan Indante has spent the last ten years representing talentless writers and entertainers whom he secretly despises. As a man, he has spent the last 34 years dating heartless, soulless women whom he much more openly despises. He is co-author of The Complete A**hole's Guide to Handling Chicks. He lives in Los Angeles, California.

This is without a doubt the funniest damn thing I have read in the last ten years written by two individuals who either learned or have always been animals with women. Their insights while many times exaggerated (one assumes for comic effect), are dead on target about 95% of the time. What these (and all other) players understand that girly men and wussies do not, is that it's not about brutalizing, injuring or manipulating women. It all about men giving away their personal power to women they are attracted to. It's not that women are attracted to bad boys, as much as bad boys possess many of the traits that women are attracted to. Women, especially beautiful women are approached constantly and are used to making most men uncomfortable as well as bend over backwards to gain their approval. So when they finally meets a man who doesn't cower, meets their every thrust and parry without missing a beat, doesn't shower them with compliments they've heard a hundred times and actually pokes fun at them........he separates himself from the rest of the pack (of mostly nancy boys and panty waists). Bad boys are generally confident, cocky and not easily intimidated (least of all by women). These guys (the authors) truly "get it" and if you take that much away from this masterpiece in disguise, you'll start "getting it" as well, more often than you ever have in your entire life! Buy the damn book!

Yes, the title is a bit raw......but in a sea of lame, mainstream, mangina type books, this book kicks all their asses....IMO. It's written for men of all ages, but the earlier in life the reader gets their hands on this, the more value they will get out of it. Unless a guy has lived under a rock his whole life, he will undoubtedly relate to some of the material covered, and be better prepared for the cruel reality of modern relationships with the opposite sex. If that weren't enough, the humor alone is worth the purchase.

This book is for pure entertainment value only. If you're looking for a real a**hole's guide to handling chicks I would check out some other books, like 'the Game'. That being said, this book has it's moments. Parts will make you laugh out loud while others kind of drag on. It's worth checking out if you like college style humor and it should definitely be on the bookshelf of every frat house.

This might be the funniest book I have ever read. If you get it for the sheer comedic value, it's the best buy in the store. But despite how completely over the top it is, there is some actual advice in there too. The section on $5 dates is a must for any guy, and the 69 deviant sexual positions in the back could make Andrew Dice Clay blush. I've heard of some of them like the Hoover, and the Angry Dragon, but Arabian Goggles, the Crazy Fireman, and the Flying Camel....I was in tears.

The book is solid and misleading. It's solid because everything in it is applicable and sound advice.It's misleading because (In my opinion) it puts the word "A**hole" in place of "Man." You don't have to be an A-hole to get what you want you just have to be a man about it. Take the initiative, take risks, say "no" from time to time and do what it takes to put yourself in favorable positions in life. Great book for those who needed the advice from that guy friend-who-was-good-at-everything whom you never had. Be a man - get the book.

This book is not garbage, and there is no violence in it! Let's face it: men and women think vry differently about the same things, and the choices most women make are confusing at best to a man. Hey, it's not MEN's fault women really do choose the men they do when they have nice guys to choose from! It is satire and very funny. What makes it so funny is the strong elements of truth to what a man experiences in life relating to women. For example, the book describes the social strata in high school and what to expect from it, and it's spot on and hilariously funny. I recommend this book to any man who has been frustrated by the seemingly twisted way women think (and choices they make) and who has a sence of humor. I also recommend it to a woman who wants to understand a little better how men think and how their own thinking and choices appear to men, with the understanding that this is thick with satire & sarcasm from men wanting to validate our exeriences and feelings with other men. Good stuff. ** There is a review here that states the book encourages men to hurt women and do violence. Not true. The point of the book is that women hurt themselves with the choices they make, thus encouraging men to act up. When a nice guy sees most women falling over themselves for the a** hole men described in this book, it doesnt take a man long to figure out that being Mr Nice doesnt cut it with most women. Also, the violence reference may allude to the sex "advice" part of the book where it talks about some rear spanking during certain sex acts. Calling this violence will be news to the women I know who like this and ask for it. The satire and humor was obviously lost on that reader.

Some of the advice is standard: don't be needy, show value, exploit insecurity. But these guys go a step further: what do you do when you are in your 30s and 40s and 50s? The answer: get married before you turn 40 because women will not trust a man over 40 who has never been married. Of course, they go on to talk about cheating on your wife(always deny, never leave a trail), finding a wife with money(reminds you of the Sam Kinison routine: homelessness is solved by either getting a job or sleeping with someone who has a job), make sure you have a wad of cash for the divorce and take steps to protect your assets. And speaking of Kinison---these guys write like they are channeling him. It is often harsh, sometimes inappropriate, and usually a distortion of the truth, but isn't all humor?
