Remember The Rules? Well, these ain't them. These are GuyRules, The Unspoken-and Until Now Unrecorded-Rules That Govern Men's Lives. For generations, men have jealously guarded these secrets, leaving women struggling to figure out what the heck was going on. Now the secret is out.

GuyRules is based on a wildly popular Web site started by the authors, who contributed the first 110 rules. They then encouraged other guys to submit their own rules (provided they could pass a "Guy Test," included in the book), and things took off.

The book is divided into chapters covering:

* Buddies: "A Guy must compete for the biggest scar and most painful story. The Guy with the ugliest scar and the most grotesque story will win the Scar-Off Olympics."

* Ego: "Guys are never lost and they never need a map. They've just chosen to take an alternate route at this particular juncture."

* Hygiene: "One true measure of Guydom is how well a Guy can burp. Amongst Guys the belch is a true work of art.

While GuyRules is funny, it is also true. For the first time in history, guys from around the world explain in their own words why they do the things they do. Every true Guy who reads GuyRules will recognize himself immediately, and women will instantly recognize the Guys they love-and love to hate.

Dan, Bill, and Gar started the GuyRules web site for kicks (and as a way to test new Internet programming techniques for their consulting company, Sunrise Press). They all live in Arizona.
