Book Overview

In real life as well as on his long-running hit sitcom According to Jim , Jim Belushi is known as a guy's guy: He's often irascible, generally bombastic, and married to a babe who loves him because underneath it all he's got a heart of gold. But it wasn't always so -- Belushi hit bottom, hard, before climbing back to where he is now. In his book of manly instruction, now in paperback, Belushi offers sage advice from the school of hard knocks, including:...

A great book by a man, for men, about being a man...

Picked this book up at an airport on a whim, and it turned out to be one of the better investments I've made in a long time. Belushi does an excellent job of blending a lot of useful advice on what it takes to be a man with his own life stories to validate his opinions, along with plenty of humor to keep pretty much any reader entertained from cover to cover. From definining your "terms" to the explanation of the "Glurk", Belushi pretty much hits the nail on the head as far as explaining some keys to the guy's guy way to handle women, friends, low times, and life in general. I would recommend this book to any man of any age, and have already loaned mine out to a number of my cheapskate buddies who claim they don't know where the nearest Waldenbooks is. If you're a man and you read this book and don't pick up any new advice and think you already knew all of this, then in Belushi's words, where's YOUR book? For the women who read it, I hope you get some enjoyment out of it, but please remember this is written by a man for men, and let us men review this book, amongst ourselves, in peace - the stuff in this book means a heck of a lot more to us than it ever will to you.

Funny, Educational AND 100% True

The real charm of this book is that it is incredibly funny and incredibly true. You will really feel that truth in your gut when you read this. You will also laugh yourself sore and learn (and unlearn) a ton about the mystical world of male/female relationships, and volumes about how to be the kind of man that your woman would cheat on you for ;>) <br />I'm sure there are some people that will read this book and somehow be offended. My advice them would be to get real, in a hurry. You're missing out on life. <br />I'm making sure my "guys" read this too. It will keep them out of a world of trouble, and give them an opportunity to thrive. <br />This is mandatory reading for anyone in a relationship, or who anyone wants to be the kind of man the world needs more of. <br />Thanks Belushi!! <br /> <br />

great book!

One of my favorite books ever! Great advice from Mr. Belushi. I'm 24 and i recommend this book to every young man. This book will "put hair in your chest", as Brando said in one of his movies. Forget the other self help books for men. If you're looking for honest advice, this is the right book. I liked the book so much that i took a day off from work to go and meet Mr. Belushi (he was comming in Chicago for booksigning). So, I got to meet Mr.Belushi, he signed my book and wished me a happy birthday, since i revealed to him it was my birthday that day. It was a great experience, the book itself and meeting Mr.Belushi right after reading his book!

Jim's Book's a Gem

Every woman should buy this book... and every man should read it. I thought it was honest. Funny. Humble. Entertaining. Women would get a better glimpse at how men think by reading this than by reading dating books that tell them to bleach their teeth and have softer hair (wow, right?). This proves: it's all in the attitude. Thoroughly enjoyable. I'm waiting for his next book.

A comical take on life and love :-)

Jim Belushi is really funny. I love According To Jim. He's quick on the mark and he's a hoot. I was intersted in reading this because he is so funny - even though this is obviously dedicated to men. It's not an advice book though - it's insightful and surprisingly so. While there is advice in there, it's main goal was to be a funny read. This is his comical take on life and love. He does get serious through a portion of it - he goes on to talk about his brother dying and trying to make it as an actor too. He loves relationship expert Justin Sterlings concept of three types of men; the Curly, the Ghandi and the Clint. Curly (of The Three Stoges fame) for humour, Ghandi for compassion and Clint for strength. I guess Jim is the Curly mainly. He strongly wants guys to read this, but not women so much because he'll let out too many mens secrets. This really is a good read. I'm most of the way through and I'm going strong. It's humourous, touching in parts and very very enjoyable.
