about this item

A reference guide to the most misunderstood of creatures: modern man.     Have you ever watched a man angling in the rain, building a shelter when there's a bed waiting for him at home or peeing as high as he can up a wall? Don't ask him why he's doing it; he probably won't know and even if he does he won't want to talk about it.     In Why Men Skim Stones, Chris Windle provides an amusing, at times philosophical, and always revelatory, insight into why men do the things they do. Here, finally, is a guide that tackles the big questions: why might a group of male friends choose to express their affection by subjecting each other to casual acts of violence? Why is it common for a man to have more of an idea of what he might do in the event of a zombie apocalypse, than what he might buy his mum for Christmas? If you've ever been dumbfounded when faced with a man who would rather talk to an inanimate object than read the instruction booklet, this is the book or you.   Why Men Skim Stones is a compendium of oddness which, by offering explanations for man's often bizarre behaviour, seeks to promote tolerance and understanding. This is a book that could save relationships, smooth family life or provide much needed reassurance for any man seeking to better understand his own actions.
