Romeo and Juliet...Anthony and Cleopatra...Wimpy and hamburgers...

Ah, yes. But has there ever been a love story as pure and passionate as that which exists between a man and his gadgets?

Since time began, all men--oh, come on, let's just call them boys--have had an intimate relationship with their toys. Whether it's the special rock they used to go hunting woolly mammoths, a fast new computer, a universal remote, or a watch that tells time--not just in eighteen time zones but also in space--boys and their toys have gone hand in hand like sand and the beach. When the man in your life has a state-of-the-art power mower to test out, nothing short of removing the front yard is going to steal away his attention.

Lucky for you, now there's a person-to-person "man-with-gadget" translation manual. In Boys and Their Toys, author Bill Adler, Jr. shows you how to get through to your gadget-obsessed man, understand that special relationship he has with his toys, gain new insight into what makes him tick, and grow closer with him in the process.
