If Queer Eye for the Straight Guy has taught us anything, it's that women everywhere want their men to be a little more gay. Alas, the fab five can't knock down every man's door, and most women fear that the road from beer-swilling schlub to gallery-hopping Valentino is just too long and winding (and ladies, you know he won't ask for directions). Is Your Straight Man Gay Enough? is here to help. Nan Shipley and her gay best friend Jason Anthony take on straight-guy habits (crotch-scratching and air guitar), straight-guy style (he thinks dressing well means extra Thousand Island), and straight-guy home decor (Pleather and milk crates). Quick questionnaires identify problem areas, and straightforward advice helps women renovate their men. He can be more Sample Sale Saturday than Superbowl Sunday. He can cry at weddings and be nice to old ladies. He can trim his nose hairs, and still fix your leaky faucet. In short, he can be a little gay, all man, and a lot of fun.

MEN: If you are contemplating that long trip down the aisle to make your wedding vows, here is a clear picture of the life that may just be waiting for you on the other side of the altar.
I found
this book while searching on the latest consumer culture slogan to hit the 'net: "Life is too short; buy the shoes!" If you have ever wondered what the engine is that really drives the consumer boom, look to the group that claims with pride to account for 85% of all discretionary spending.
If you are still in doubt, have a glance through the preview for this book. Five stars, because there are some men out there who are not quite as oblivious as the author likes to think we are.
