Learn to spot each type by simple and reliable indicators such as diet, nest type, foraging technique, plumage, habitat, courtship behavior, and mating calls. Men! There's a 99% chance that you match one of the "species" (remarkably well encapsulated by Ingall's writing) more closely than you'd like to imagine.

This side-splitting book contains everything you need to know about the most common sorts of male humans in North . I've been giving this book out like candy to friends, neighbors and colleagues. It's filled with brainy attitude, great observations of life in the nineties, and all under the ersatz rubrick of a field guide, complete with over-the-top Latin terms, eating habits, mating calls and habitats. you should pardon the expression, it's a hoot.

Marjorie Ingall (Henry Holt & C. A distant cousin to the Audubon Guide to North American Birds, my daughter's book offers handy descriptions of over 50 species of boys, along with descriptions of their plumage, mating calls, sexual and agonistic displays, courtship rituals and habitats. Now, this does not sound like the sort of book that would come from the pen (or word processor) of the Ayatollah Khomeini of feminists. How could this happen? Well, I'll let her speak for herself: "In the past, only men were allowed to look. Today women can leer and dissect as much as boys.

Ingall's life field experience elevates the entries from one-joke .

She's got an eye for '90s detail, too. The mating ritual of Cyberdorkus perpetuum, for example, involves telling the female she looks like Agent Scully. While your inner Painfully Sincere Activist Guy (Boycottus grapesus) might recoil at such sweeping stereotypes, The Field Guide to North American Males is more educational than a date with Nebbish virtuus (Ugly-Shoe-Wearing Public Interest Guy)

The "bird" theme is hilarious. All is very well executed in this book. I laughed the first time, and I laugh subsequent times. Some of the material is tongue in cheek, some is absolutely grounded in truth. Doesn't that make for the best humor? Laugh at yourself, laugh at others, laugh out loud.

It's hard to believe that books like this still get written in 1997. Nothing but an unimaginitive play on stereotypes - doesn't the world have enough stereotypes already? Ms. Ingall should know better than this.

i swear, not only is this book hilarious, but you will be able to find an exact description of at least one guy you've dated.
