Synopsis

How to Drive a Tank by Frank Coles

Call yourself a man? You do? Do you even know what a real man is? Are you a six-foot-one Adonis who wears all the latest fashions, moisturises regularly, visits spas for pleasure and never does anything wrong? Or do you drink twenty pints every Friday night, guzzle a kebab on the way home and then fart yourself to sleep? It's time to stop being the man everyone expects you to be and be the one you want to be. Learn how to: - Pick locks, safes and chastity belts - Disappear without a trace in 24 hours - Win a gun fight - Survive the wild - Ride a wall of death - Work a 4-hour week - Survive any crisis - Make things go boom - Drive cars sideways - Be a great dad ...and, of course, drive a tank.

Reviews

'The subtitle of this book really gets to the heart of it... Coles emphasises that the only thing that makes one a real man is to follow one's own path'
TOP GEAR MAGAZINE, Book of the Month

'There is something refreshingly Hemingway-esque about Coles's Philosophy that deserves to be heard'
BBC FOCUS

'Chances are your dad can put up shelves. But does he know how to hide a dead body? Or cry with diginity? If not, this book's for him'
COSMOPOLITAN, Book of the Month

'Some might label this type of educating as irresponsible. It is. Wonderfully so'
IRISH EXAMINER
