I'm a woman and I thought it was pretty funny...it's a bit offensive at times but anyone with a good sense of humor will absolutely love it!... Tim Allen gives insight into his own life while treating the reader like just another guy working on the car telling stories. It's not a serious work, and Tim Allen isn't promoting the degradation of women. He's simply telling jokes that many men in our society relate to.
I liked this book. I thought it was pretty funny at times. His humor was different than in his show. In the book he was more crude. In addition to being funny, he also provides some personal insight into how he really is.
Tim Allen takes you through rites of passage, from fixing up his banana-seat Stringray to his earliest moment of sexual awaremess, which occurred when he saw his first Playboy pinup, and realized that every woman is naked underneath her clothes. He ponders such questions as why women are always "chilly," when men are burning up; why men don't micd being called pigs; why women can't understand what men do in the garage all morning. There are hilarious meditations on everything form butt cracks to why men lie, to why women think they're always right.

Tim Allen brings his comedy style from Home Improvement to this book. There were many times I found myself imagining his classic grunt after a short rant about men things, or when he describes the perfect man's bathroom. I did find much of the book to be more simple ramblings of stereotypical male roles and ideas. It was an enjoyable read and I would suggest this book to a friend.
