What Is GuyQ?

It is the indescribable sense of mastery, confidence, knowledge, and competence that is the essence of being a man. GuyQ isn't something we're born with-- we have to find it, earn it, and learn it. Fortunately, Joe Kita and the editors of Men's Health have spent 15 years talking to the world's greatest scientists, most respected coaches and trainers, best sex and relationship experts, and paragons of the business and fashion worlds. They've found GuyQ. They've analyzed it and boiled it down to the 1,305 essential things that every man must know. But you're a busy man. So we've made these tips short, easy to follow, and powerful.

Inside this book, you'll learn to be a masterful lover, a man of style and poise, and a warrior able to handle whatever life throws at you. You'll learn to build a great body, and you'll find out how to care for that body for years and years to come. In this book, we bring you only the information you really need, including:

* The delicious "forbidden" breakfast treat that's much better for you than the common bagel and cream cheese. (page 8)
