Book Review | The Man Test
Author: Robert Dodenhoff
Need an all-around fun book for a teenager or a newlywed? You will want to check Robert Dodenhoff’s, The Man Test out. This book is more than just a novelty type book. At first when saying I’d review it, I thought it’d be a joke type book. It’s not. It is a serious book, packed full of really great information and every day etiquette. I would say it is the modern day man’s version of The Dangerous Book for Boys.
The Man Test is set up in categories and each category has mini quiz’s with the answers at the end of each quiz. Really, if you were to give this to a teenage boy or young adult and that boy/man were to seriously go through and take and score each quiz, making a mental note the answers to the ones he got wrong, this book would provide much needed and useful knowledge throughout that boy’s/man’s life. I mean who knew that it is proper etiquette, now, to wear other colors to a funeral than black? That is one of the questions that I failed while taking The Man Test. As it turns out, I’m not much of a man.
Don’t let the title fool you. This book is no joke; it should be called The Man’s Mini Encyclopedia. I have no hesitation recommending this book for anyone’s library. This is a great reference and all around fun book.
