    Dan Van Oss danvanoss grew up reading just about everything he could borrow from the town library, although admittedly sometimes just to get the sticker segments to paste onto the Reading Centipede for each book he finished Raised on a diet of Dave Barry columns, Douglas Adams radio serials and M A S H reruns, Dan s writing balances the line between laugh out loud hilarious and cleverly absurd Humor is hard to do and Dan does it extremely well I am a fan of the late, great Douglas Adams, and in my opinion, Dan is the closest America has to him Van Oss s style reminds me somewhat of Douglas Adams Very witty phrases full of Pythonesque non sequitors Dan s style is like The Best of Dave Barry meets The Best of Dennis Miller Dan s had pieces published on humorwriters, won 2nd place in the Mona Schreiber Prize for Humorous Fiction and Nonfiction, was a semi finalist in the humorpress writing contest, and was mentioned honorably in the Soul Making Keats Literary Competition for Humor He started writing during college, where he enjoyed getting red lines mercilessly drawn through his Creative Writing projects by his professor, and where he also penned a weekly column in the school paper under the pseudonym Fletcher Ford You can catch his weekly humor column, the Dubious Knowledge Institute, at dubiousknowledgestitute.Click the Follow button above and get updates on new books and audiobooks Dan is releasing.Want Visit danvanoss for exclusive books and his latest columns.

    “Shopping is an integral part of modern society.” This statement is the only true statement in this entire missive. This is a parody on women’s inert addiction to shopping. Spanning from the Stone Age to the present time, Dan van Oss outlines women’s need, not only to buy anything and everything, but force their male counterparts to accompany them. He lights on changing fashions throughout the ages and women’s obsession to keep up with them. The author could be a misogynist or even a m [...]

    I have to say this up front - I do not have the issue this book is made to help you with. My wife isn't a big shopper. In fact, I probably am more of a shopper than she is. So maybe I'm not the target audience for this book but it did not stop me from enjoying it.Van Oss starts with a quick history of shopping and the problems it has caused men, before moving onto the actual self-help part of the book. We must know where we have been, to know where we are going. Some might call it “revisionist [...]

    In one word, hysterical. I chuckled and outright laughed my way through this book, and even read selected passages aloud to my husband – who, lucky for me, doesn’t mind shopping at all.While not a ‘survival’ guide (as you might get from Homeland Security or The Sierra Club), it does poke some serious fun at the ‘art’ of shopping, covering everything from getting roped into going shopping, to navigating the various sections of a department store including terms to remember, to the tri [...]

    Shopping Survival Guide for Men By Dan Van OssA hilarious book on shopping we learn the psychology of shopping. When and where the first shopping MAll is at. Tips for men regarding make-up, handbags, Lingerie, shoes, fashion terminology, color comprehension (names of clothing colors) and critical dates in shopping history. A cleverly written (very, very funny) book. I enjoyed some of the quizzes. I must admit, I failed all of them. I am unlike most women and do not enjoy shopping, I would prefer [...]

    "Hilarious" is a word that makes me cringe. It brings to my mind comedy clubs filled with anything but laughter and films where the only funny thing about them is how you were duped into paying to see them.And yet, what other word can I use to describe the Shopping Survival Guide for Men? I read it on an airplane, which was embarrassing as it caused no end of concerned looks by those sitting next to me. How could I not chuckle or, indeed, laugh out at Van Oss' cheeky factoids and over-the-top cr [...]

    Shopping Survival Guide for Men: How a Guy Can Survive a Shopping Experience Without Having to Gnaw His Own Arm Off (Survival Guides for Men Book 1) by Dan Van Oss is a very clever and witty book for men, although I read it and found it funny as heck too. It is hard to describe how great this book is because it has sooooo many clever things in it. I will give you a few tidbits to chew on: " man learned to live with shopping, much as they learned to live with dysentery, scabies, or having to wear [...]

    4.5 stars.This is the fourth book I've read from Mr. Van Oss and I wasn't disappointed. His humour is spot on; even as a female I found myself laughing at the antics that a lot of women exhibit while shopping. Not sure how men put up with it. ;)The only thing keeping this from a 5-star is his typos - one of my pet peeves is 'it's' and Mr. Van Oss repeated uses this word incorrectly. 'It's' = it is; its = possessive form of 'it'. Sorry Mr. Van Oss, but this one bugs the hell out of me. If you're [...]

    Seriously not for me. The first semi-clever anachronism was amusing. The fifth, mildly annoying. Look ahead a few chaptersoh. The cleverness wasn't, the cliches were thick on the ground, & the stereotyping reflected equally poorly on the men & women (from caveman to present day).Maybe someone else - with a different sense of humor - would find it hysterical. Maybe.

    Only made it 27% through before giving up. After getting through 1/4th of it, it's gotten maybe 2-3 mild chuckles out of me. Just not my kind of humor, it's just making the obvious cheap shots based on your typical clichés, lacking any proper wit whatsoever.

    Entertaining in parts but after the first couple of chapters, the joke wore thin. There's nothing new here. It's the same old, "why do women need so many things, men are colour blind, blah blah'. I guess it might have worked if it were a shorter book. I got this book from NetGalley.

    DNF. I couldn't tell if this was meant to be useful or funny, but the whole thing was trying so incredibly hard that it came off as neither.Thank you to the publisher for sending me an ARC.

    Although amusing enough this book will appeal to a mostly American audience. I'mafraid most of the references meant nothing to me. However the bits I did get we're very funny.
