What Not to Do (And How to Do It), Paperback Book


Danny is back with more hilarious true-life stories of hopeless modern manhood.

A husband and now a new father, Danny Wallace is a man who struggles to understand the unspoken rules of society...For example,when do you hug? And when do you Not hug? How do you react when you realise that yesterday's under pants might still be in your trousers?

What do you do if you think you might have a man-crush? And what happens when you think you may have accidentally ordered your wife a prostitute for her birthday?

Following the bestselling Awkward Situations for Man and based on his incredibly popular columns, Danny Wallace entertains us with more stories from his often embarrassing and bewildering life.

No one said it was easy being a man. And Danny is finding it harder than ever. (Previously published as More Awkward Situations for Men) Danny's first solo book, Join Me, was described as a "word-of-mouthphenomenon." (by The Bookseller) and "one of the funniest stories you will ever read." (by the Daily Mail).

His second book, Yes Man - in which he decided to say 'Yes' to everything - was described as 'hilarious' by several national newspapers.

The Warner Bros. film adaptation of Wallace's book Yes Man, starring Jim Carrey inthe lead role, was released in December 2008 and grossed $230,000,000worldwide. Danny's third book Friends Like These, described by The Bookseller as 'another comedy masterpiece' is currently in development as a major project by Miramax.

In 2011, Danny Wallace was named PPA's Columnist of the Year for his weekly column in Short List Magazine, "Danny Wallace is a Man", which formed the starting point for his book Awkward Situations for Men.

Danny lives in North London with his wife and baby.
