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.
Guys' Guy's demonstrates fine craft. I'm seriously trying to think of negatives about the book, but I can't really think of anything. It hit all the right spots.
My only question is ... When is Guys' Guy's going to hit the big screen?
PS: By the way, I write not as an expert in fiction, but as someone who publishes in the area of international law and U.S. law programs for international students. So, it was very refreshing to get lost in a fine book of fiction like Guys' Guy's that truly speaks to the world at large.
If you have a friend from overseas who wants to study law in the U.S., they can check out my book, LL.M. Roadmap: An International Student's Guide to U.S. Law School Programs. Whereas Guys' Guy's will keep you awake until the wee hours, I'm not certain that LL.M. Roadmap will have the same effect for all it's readers! Again, well done, Guys' Guys'

Not sure if its fiction or experience. I may have met a few of those characters! Certainly author Manni has paid his advertising dues.. and has picked up on good copy writing. Beyond creating great characters, he highlights how circus-like advertising/media/client relationships can be.
Fun, enjoyable...caught me!
