My sons are late 20s and live on their own. They want to cook, but don't know how.
A person who knows how to cook would not care for this book.
But a person who is new at cooking, I believe, would really like it.
Not just men, but young women as well.
A complete casserole type meal can be made, usually with 3 - 4 ingredients.
The food is quite edible...just not that fancy.
A seasoned cook could take the recipes and add a few ingredients and fancy up a casserole.
I read in a review that 1 person lived on a boat and used this book often.
It's perfect for a living situation like that.
It would be good for camping and taking canned ingredients.
I was really happy with this book and am giving it to my sons as a Xmas gift.

when i first saw this book, over a year ago, i thought it was hysterical. now, one year later, i bought the book to help me do research. be forewarned the recipes are geared towards men, but anyone can use this cookbook. it's especially good for bachelors, bachelorettes, college students, or people who don't have a lot of groceries in their pantry and don't know what to do. i for one do not keep a lot of fresh veggies around because they simply go to waste before i can use it for dinner. therefore i have canned veggies. oh, it is cheaper to by it on amazon at $11.+ than at the bookstore. the bookstore came out to $17.+ where as amazon just came in at $15.+

As a college student without too much time, resources, or experience cooking, I started getting sick of the same old plates of pasta and hamburger helper meals. A friend of mine lent this to me and although some of the meals I tried are not too good, there are a bunch that really do taste great. Plus, it really helped me start out cooking more 'real' things for myself and it is very simple. It gave me a few ideas of my own and helped me expand into more advanced meal preparations. This book is great for the lazy, inexperienced college student.

My purpose in considering this book was a hunt for recipes that were fairly simple to make, not too unhealthy, and would please four boys of various ages. The book itself is pretty enough (shiny pages!), and it's certainly entertaining to read, but the layout of the recipes is confusing to anyone trying to get all of the ingredients together; it's too easy to miss the "other ingredients" in small print at the corner of the photo. (Since I input all recipes into a computer program, this didn't affect me too much, but book-on-counter cooks be warned.)
On the other hand, EVERY recipe I've tried has been a wild success with my family -- the 2-year-old, 5-year-old, 13-year-old, and husband ALL liked them. Woo hoo!!
Considering that there are only 50 recipes and MOST people aren't going to use more than two thirds of those, the price is a little high. On the other hand, how much are new, popular, tasty, easy, health-conscious family-friendly recipes really worth? Recommendation: get it from the library first, to see if it is "for you." I will definitely be giving copies as gifts.

If you truly have trouble putting the most basic meals together, then this book is fine. But don't expect anything terribly appealing. Most of the recipes look gross, and they're so unhealthy that I wouldn't eat them more than very occasionally. If that doesn't bother you, then give it a shot. You'll find recipes similar to what you'd find on the back of a soup can, and they're very easy to make, but I'm not sure you can call it cooking. It's more like directions for heating things up, with a few extra steps so you can tell your friends you made it yourself. If you want to learn how to cook, try a different book, such as "Help! My Apartment Has a Kitchen".

I bought this book for my father when he was newly widowed and had no idea how to cook for himself. These 50 recipes, presented by Men's Health magazine, are quick and easy and seasoned with a dash of humor. This is a good book for the beginner because each recipe uses only a few basic ingredients, mostly from cans. Its thick paperboard pages provide clear cooking instructions, photos of the foods to be used, nutritional information, and additional cooking and nutrition tips. The categories of "real guy" meals and snacks include ham, chicken, fish, chili, beans, SpaghettiOs, veggies, fruit, and beer (yes, beer!). Some of the recipes are rather strange (stirfry SpaghettiOs, or drunken corn), but for the most part they are far better than the steady diet of fast food and junk food that a person might otherwise subsist on if unable to cook. I recommend it for anyone, male or female, who is at a complete loss about the mysteries of the kitchen.

I liked the concept of this book, but none of the recipies are appitizing. The combinations of ingredients are un-imaginable and purely disgusting!
For the same concept and much better recipies, I recommend The Can Opener Gormet by Laura Karr instead!

That's right, it's not just for men. I really enjoy this book because the recipies are EASY, require minimum ingredients that are easy to find in the grocery store, and taste good! They even provide nutrition information, encourage using low-fat products, and provide suggestions and facts about the meals/ingredients to vary the recipies! You just cannot go wrong here!
