Received from the publicist for review.

This one gets four stars.  As I obviously don't listen to NPR I had no experience with the author beforehand, but I was very pleasantly surprised!  This is geared more towards men, but is nonetheless amusing for all readers.  It covers everything from using a host's bathroom at a party and clogging the toilet to leaving a good voicemail message.  This is funny, but it actually does provide you with a wealth of useful information on each topic addressed.  This would make a lovely gift!
★★★★ = Really Liked It
