This book tells the reader right up front not to expect much of anything new or different that hasn't been stated in other books before. As it says in the preface: "Why bother bringing back the old stuff that everybody knows about? Well, for one thing, not everybody does know the basics of good grooming. . . .

The song "Dirty Water" blares at Fenway Park after every Red Sox victory and has become part of the winning soundtrack of baseball-crazy Massachusetts. But the band that wrote the 1966 hit says it is also used in Budweiser commercials, and for that the rock 'n' rollers are none too happy. The Standells filed a federal lawsuit last week claiming that Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc. used "Dirty Water" without permission in commercials to try to tap into the song's connection with the team.
