Men: A User's Guide


Formats & editions


A hilarious collection of the very best bloke-baiting one-liners from the Queen of The Quip.

“Why don't women tell jokes?"
"Because we marry them."

Kathy Lette has gathered together the very finest of her sparkling witticisms in this tongue-in-cheek guide to men. Devastatingly funny and more than a little outrageous, Kathy offers up advice (“if he wants breakfast in bed, tell him to sleep in the kitchen”), her inimitable insights into the battle of the sexes (“statistically, 100% of divorces begin with marriage”) and some scathing observations of the decidedly less fair sex (“all husbands think they're Gods. If only their wives weren't atheists”).

The perfect gift for women who like to shoot straight from the lip.

After several years as a newspaper columnist and TV sitcom writer in America and Australia, she’s written 11 international bestsellers in her characteristic witty voice, including Mad Cows, How to Kill Your Husband - and Other Handy Household Hints (staged by the Victorian opera) and The Boy Who Fell to Earth.

Kathy Lette lives in London, and can often be found at The Savoy drinking a cocktail named after her. Kathy is an autodidact (a word she taught herself) but in 2010, received an honorary doctorate from Southampton Solent University.
