BOOK REVIEW: Man V. Liver by Neil Hinson and Paul Friedrich

What you would have said had you thought of it last night at the bar.
Meet Man: He’s witty, carefree, and probably not sober. He's Dean Martin meets Jack Benny, Don Draper, and Jack Donaghy.  He imparts upon readers his clever, unabashed musings of romance, party culture, and bachelorhood. The life of the party, the collected contemplations in Man v. Liver will amuse and inform aspiring connoisseurs of class.

In Man v. Liver, Man expels his alcohol-fueled wisdom to all who yearn to encapsulate themselves in a life of forgotten nights and fine tailored suits––which, as he will tell you, are handy to sleep in if you wish to be the best dressed at breakfast.

This book is s a collection of sayings and quotes about drinking, liver, party guests, things like that with a conglomeration of drawings.

There were a few good ones, like:

"This is worth the hangover." ( I like this because I've said this before)

"Twtitter, Texting. Posting. Is anyone here, actually HERE?"

and I enjoyed the dedication "To my liver, keep up the good work champ."

I'm not sure what I think about this. book. If you can call it that.  It is definitely one of those coffee table or bathroom books that I could find myself maybe only flipping through a couple of times.  If that. I don't even think it is a book really to buy, maybe just browse through while waiting in line at Urban Outfitters. Maybe it would have been funnier if I had something other than tea in my cup. 

I received this book on netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
