Really funny! I read the real book, and he nailed some of the inadvertently humorous aspects if it. Jokes about the writing, the plot, self-help books, and men. Wicked good satire. My only criticism is it is too short. It's not a full length book, (I wish it was!) but it does say it's a "guide." A lot of laughs for a little price.
I found this book after reading a short work by the author called "A Guy's Guide to Fifty Shades of Grey," which was hilarious. This book has a lot of very funny essays, covering a lot of different topics. Some are ridiculous but funny, others are sweet. I especially loved the one about his helping his folks put up a Christmas tree, and the one about his Italian grandmother. Tom is as funny as Dave Berry, but a much better writer.
