Counting Down to Father's Day

Books for Guys
We certainly don't want to stereotype anyone's reading choices and yet a few of the following books have a decidedly "guy" feel.  We'll leave the rest up to you...

If you've seen Guys and Dolls, you may enjoy reading about the real life man who inspired the Sky Masterson character who, as you know, gambled on everything.  Try Titanic Thompson : the Man Who Bet On Everything by Kevin Cook.

The Man Cave Book by Michael H. Yost and Jeff Wilser is a sometimes hilarious though unintentional take on a Billy Joel song line : "Yes, we all need a room of our own."

How to Be a Man : a Guide to Style and Behavior for the Modern Gentleman is authored by Glenn O'BrienO'Brien writes The Style Guy column for GQ magazine.

He flew through the air with the greatest of ease... on a motorcycle.  Enjoy Leigh Montville's Evel : the High-flying Life of Evel Knievel : American Showman, Daredevil, and Legend.

If you're a baseball fan family, try Baseball in the Garden of Eden : the Secret History of the Early Game by noted baseball historian John Thorn.

Ben Thompson's two Bada** titles are available; the latest title includes more than a few bada** women, too.
