Mr Jones’ Rules For The Modern Man

By Dylan Jones

Rating: 1 star

I hated this book. Absolutely hated it. Written by the editor of GQ magazine, it provides rules (not guidelines, rules) for how men should live. The author is the kind of self-satisfied git you want to “rag-doll up and down the road like an empty shell suit”. I also realised very early on in the book that the kind of men that this book is aimed at is the kind of men that I despise and who just really aren’t nice.

The reasons that I finished it are: 1) it was a present; 2) I’m not going to let a man like that defeat me; and 3) it’s sort of a car-crash book, you can’t stop reading because it’s so awful.

Avoid. Really, it’s not worth the precious hours of your life.
