Description - Why Men Skim Stones by Chris Windle

Have you ever watched a man angling in the rain, building a shelter when there's a bed waiting for him at home or peeing as high as he can up a wall?

In Why Men Skim Stones, Chris Windle provides an amusing and indispensable insight into why men do the things they do. Here, finally, is a guide that tackles the big questions- why do male friends express their affection by subjecting each other to casual acts of violence? Why is it common for a man to have more of an idea of what he might do in the event of a zombie apocalypse, than what he might buy his mum for Christmas? If you've ever been dumbfounded when faced with a man who would rather talk to an inanimate object than read the instruction booklet, this is the book for you.

Why Men Skim Stones is a compendium of oddness which, by offering explanations for man's often bizarre behaviour, seeks to promote tolerance and understanding. This is a book that could save relationships, smooth family life or provide much needed reassurance for any man seeking to better understand his own actions.
