From the reviews…

“…there is something refreshingly Hemingway-esque about Coles’s Philosophy that deserves to be heard.” Sam Turvey in BBC’s Focus magazine.

“Ok, so it might tell you how to hotwire cars, gamble and blow things up, but the subtitle of this book really gets to the heart of it [...]. Coles emphasises that the only thing that makes one a real man is to follow one’s own path, even (especially?) if that means being an expert nude handglider.”  – Top Gear Magazine, book of the month.

“A ‘Dangerous Book for Men’ – how to embrace life to the full and how to be your own man * Top Gear meets 101 Things To Do Before You Die.” – Richard Horne

A “possibly life-saving volume” – Evening Standard

“Chances are your dad can put up shelves. But does he know how to hide a dead body? Or cry with diginity? If not, this book’s for him.” – Cosmopolitan, book of the month.

“Coles appears to have sussed that most men while aware of their obligations in the responsibility and maturity departments would not be too discommoded were the early morning commute into the cubicle farm to be disrupted by, let’s say, several minor explosions, a decent gunfight and, maybe topped off with a high speed deathride with a little female company [...] Some might label this type of ‘educating’ as irresponsible. It is. Wonderfully so.” – Joe McNamee in The Irish Examiner.

“Here are tips on such essential topics as sex, fatherhood and hot-wiring cars, that will allow unsure males to make a man of themselves.” – The Daily Telegraph
