Oprah's Book Club is proud to announce...

manliness2.jpgIf you’ve never heard of Maddox, the in-your-colon rant-master, get ready to rumble, because yesterday the Alphabet of Manliness hit #1 on Amazon. (It’s bouncing around between #1 and #3 at the moment). His blog’s been silent for many a moon and I thought he probably was a victim of his own spontaneous combustion. Now we know better as his hardback has dropped in on the literary world like a scud missile.

I’m not saying that he's the next Tolstoy. Far from it. More like a bookish version of Tre Parker and Matt Stone.

If you don’t appreciate his humor, at least check out the Amazon page. According to Amazon...

Customers who bought this book also bought:

  • I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell  by Tucker Max
  • Real Ultimate Power: The Official Ninja Book  by Robert Hamburger
  • The Modern Drunkard  by Frank Kelly Rich
  • The Complete A**hole's Guide to Handling Chicks  by Dan Indante
  • Sperm Wars: The Science of Sex  by Robin Baker
  • Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way  by Bruce Campbell
  • The Official Rock Paper Scissors Strategy Guide  by Douglas Walker

And customers tagged this item with:

Pulitzer Prize, spirituality, religious awakening, Nobel Prize for Manliness, testicular fortitude, huge balls, self-help and my personal favorite, Oprahs Book Club.

Kinda gets you right there doesn't it?

Hm. Somehow I don't think I'm his target demographic.

Is manliness making the rounds? First E. Ann, now you. Should I be watching more TV?

It's a guy thing. I know.

I like the fact that someone that pre-ordered it also bought "The Official Rock Paper Scissors Strategy Guide." Kinda says it all.

I can't wait for the uproar when it debuts on the NYT bestseller list in June.

Did this guy actually use testosterone as ink? Or perhaps blood? Now that would be manly.

Hi Jamie!

Thanks for popping by my blog site. Cool that you lived in Ashland, what a beautiful little town. And yeah, "Dead Indian Road" HAS been renamed ... to "Dead Indian Lane." (bah-dum-bum)

Seriously though, this book that you're posting about looks interesting and potentially really funny, I'll check it out at Powells Books here in P-town and buy it if it holds up to the cool sounding pitch--and I love the cheesily awesome cover!

Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving a comment.
Checked out Maddox's site. Is it wrong for a girl to like this stuff? Don't answer that!

Have you seen the Bad Ass Bible by S.K. Smith? www.badassbible.com
It's got everything from how to start a fire with a car battery to bad ass sex. (I guess some bad asses need instructions. Who knew?)

I'm so easily amused. I was just cruising Amazon looking at books on how to be a ninja, and another entitled The Zombie Survival Guide. It'll look nice on my mantle right next to the Encyclopedia of Bad Taste.
