Format: Paperback
The Guy's Guy's Guide launches us deep into the cut throat business world complete with lavish expense accounts, liquid lunches and dizzying office politics. It seems not much has changed since the portrayal of the Ad Men world in the sixties that Mad Men has given us ' except maybe the gun wielding in the office.

I had worried about one dimensional characters when this novel began, but was pleasantly surprised after getting to know them all and found they weren't wooden and seemed willing to change. There are quite a few characters involved, but they were relatively easy to tell apart. Interestingly, as much as I despised him, it was Roger's journey that I found the most interesting.

I didn't really find any earth shattering information on the male species in this novel and in fact, I now think that they're even more complex than I originally thought. It was amusing to watch them sort themselves out ' the women too! ' and rooted for them all to find love and happiness.

Manni's dialogue is sharp and interactions come across as genuine and real. A few things about the writing jumped out at me that I didn't love and if they'd been absent would have vaulted this rating higher. The instances were low, but still noticeable and did detract from my overall enjoyment. There were times where the voice changed and bounced from character to character which was confusing, especially as each section was set as one characters viewpoint. I also found many chapters difficult to get going at times, especially when it started with one character bumbling around and it got to the point where I found myself skipping the initial bits until the action began.

Smart, fun, a great read, start to finish Oct. 25 2011
By S. Armour - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Manni has performed that rarest of feats: a frothy, fun, sexy novel that's actually about something. It's a glamorous, blue-skies New York story with characters that will resonate with readers of all types of fiction. By turns, it's romantic, hilarious, and gripping, a story of friendship, love and sex, of men and women and the webs we spin for each other, with edge-of-your-seat business drama working like an undertow, pulling the reader through the pages. A great read, start to finish, and an impressive debut.

Fun, yet thought-provoking Oct. 6 2011
By Scott Swanay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The best word to describe this book is "fun". It's fun to read whether you enjoy plots with lots of twists and turns, you live or work in NYC, you work in the advertising, or you just enjoy reading about the differences in the ways that men and women relate to each other.

Max, Roger, Cassidy, and Veronica are all memorable characters in various stages of transition. The book revolves around a very clever plot device that's unlike anything you've seen or read before, which just adds to the fun. I could definitely see this page-turner forming the basis for a movie or TV series down the road!

Fun and Insightful! Oct. 18 2011
By CSB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The Guys' Guy's Guide to Love is a sexy, fun, and, at times, raw look into the minds of men. It's an expose of the inner-workings of 30-something men in NYC and their constant juggle of work, girls, and ego. Although a sort of confirmation of all of the things women suspect (but don't want to believe) of men, it leaves us girls with hope that guys can pull it together. The characters in the novel are unceasingly believable, whether you've dated them, befriended them, or maybe even mirror them yourself. All in all, this is a fun read and finally gives us a guys' perspective on dating and life in fast-paced NYC.

Fun and Intriguing Oct. 18 2011
By KS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The Guys' Guy's Guide to Love manages to do a lot in a very digestible amount of space. The author exposes the troubles of contemporary gender dynamics with an entertaining and fun story that takes place in the city that has as much personality as the characters in the novel. The book is as refreshing as it is enjoyable. Manni's insight into his characters and knowledge of the world they live in conveys a cool authenticity. The reader can trust what the reality of the plot, and nothing seems forced. A great read for anyone.
