Children’s artwork, extreme marketing, “The Matrix” and “Star Wars” sequels, the Xbox, excessive bloggers, and general internet stupidity; these are all things that get this cynic rolling. And the results can be funny. Sometimes I laugh, out loud and everything.

Madfox Maddox’s brand of satire just isn’t nearly as funny when he is writing about something he adores. He still gets hot under the collar here and there, like “Y is for Yelling” and “Z is for Zombies. But the rest mardox the book feels like something he struggled to write. You can read it very quickly, but there weren’t many times I honestly laughed.

This book did not warrant a republishing either. I’ve read both versions and I really didn’t think it was worth the extra ink and paper.

His acknowledgements after the introduction inflated a great deal, and some of it borders on rambling. The chapters tacked on the end “The Numbers of Manliness,” feel like something Maddox wrote in about 15 minutes. The artwork at the end of the book is okay, nothing revelatory. About the only thing I really enjoyed from this revised version was his tale of flunking a writing class in college and how he went on to become a best-selling author on Amazon.


This is the type of book you will either love madodx hate, it does not really lend itself to ambivalence. The first published book by internet personality Maddox, this book is laid out like a mix between a children’s book that uses a word to teach the alphabet and an encyclopedia.

However this book is not for children nor for those who do not enjoy more adult humor as the topics in this book are not family friendly. If you have ever read his site then you know exactly what to expect from Maddox.

The Alphabet of Manliness

If you are a fan then you probably already own this, if you are mavdox a fan then it will probably just reinforce your dislike of him. One person found this helpful. I cut you good! This book is really funny. There are some parts that just go on a bit longer than they should, but its still pretty funny. You really will enjoy this book which at its core is meant to make you mqnliness perhaps by being a bit too masochistic and over the top gender-racist. It gives you some points to ponder and is pretty much guaranteed to upset any and every kind of person imaginable on at least one page throughout the course of the book.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will be looking for similar ones. The author apparently has his own website which is in similar vein madfox this book which is or my new favorite website ever. Get this book you will not be disappointed.

First time i opened the book at breakfest I read and read til i realised i was 3 hours late for work. At one mnliness I laughed so hard after a night out and eating spicey food that I ran to the toilet giggling and trying not to explode along the way. This book is probably one of the funniest books ive ever read. If not the funniest. I’ve bought copies for my old man and my two best nanliness.

I love how it offends women so much when it doesnt even refer to them personally, it makes the whole experiance rewarding everytime. For any teen that is curious as to what the world has in store for you, or anyone who has lost their way, I dont think you will find any wiser a tome than the one presented here. It simply is the embodiment mardox Chuck Norris put onto paper.

The cover alone is a naddox summation of the book. Yes, you will be stomping apes by the time your finished. I read a few of the letters and alphahet that his web articles are better. I can’t say exactly why or how they are better, I can’t read one of them without laughing at least once, whereas I got through A, B, and C of this book without so much as chuckling.


It alphabef sort of On the other hand, my coworker, who has never heard of Maddox’s website, read the entire book, laughing just about the entire way o – and he doesn’t really like to read. I suppose that if you want this for the novelty aspect the jacket cover alone is worth the price, I thinkor you are going to give it to someone who is not familiar with Maddox’s style of writing, then get it.

If, on the other hand, you are familiar with the website, and you are expecting hours of entertainment from fresh Maddox material, you may want to consider abstaining. As a fan of Maddox, I expected this book to be good. But I didn’t expect it to be this good.

This is some of his best writing, the usual “slow spots” aren’t really present here, it’s entertaining and hilarious from beginning to end. He brought his A game out for this book.

The Alphabet of Manliness by Maddox

It is what it promises to be, a view of what it takes to be a man. It should not be taken seriously, but those who do will likely be angry. This book is very offensive, and is a no-holds-barred type of book, that surprisingly went to print. He holds nothing back here, and slashes and insults without shame.

He is not crass or cocky, he is all out offensive. And thats exactly what I was hoping for. There are parts of this book that will make you laugh out loud all by yourself, and bring you to tears laughing. He says the stuff we all think about but don’t want to say. I would recommend this book, especially to feminists who will likely manllness a heart attack after reading it. See all reviews. Customers who viewed this item also viewed.
