So as I sit down and begin read 'What Not To Do... And How To Do It' I get this amazing feeling of deja vu. I've read this first story I think to myself, maybe I read it in shortlist magazine. I get to the second one and find I've read that as well. Only then do I study the front cover of the book a little closer, this is not as the title suggests a new book! This is a repackaged version of 'More Awkward Situations For Men' with that title hidden at the bottom of the page.
So it seems I have two copies of the same book with different titles. Word of warning if you already have 'More Awkward Situations For Men' don't buy this! You've already got it!
Amazon maybe you could retitle this or mention it somewhere on the page? Surely I can't be the only one that has bought this book expecting to read a new collection of stories from Danny Wallace only to find it's an old book?

Regular readers of Danny Wallace may have followed him for years like I have. He is a few years older than me, but I cannot quite help seeing his life progress in a similar (if slightly more exciting way) as mine. He started off down the pub with his mate Dave Gorman, ventured into saying Yes to everything including asking his wife to marry him and by ‘More Awkward Situations for Men’ we have a happily married man with a toddler in tow. I find myself similarly situated and perhaps then this book chimes even more with me than most. However, Danny Wallace has a way of writing himself as an everyman that many people can relate too, especially is they feel very British or are amused by our antics.

Wallace’s humour is often that of politeness; the petty feuds we have in our own heads as we see someone press the lift button again. Or it is humour of the absurd and relatable; is that a pair of old underpants trapped down my trouser leg? ‘More’ takes some of the best essays from Wallace’s writing for Shortlist magazine and puts them together into one. Most serial columnists seemed to have a scattergun approach to writing and the essays do not really relate, but seeing as Wallace’s main sources are himself, his family and his friends it almost has a narrative as we follow him through life.

There are some laugh out loud stories in this book that I related too. It does help that I am a fan, but it is clear to see by any neutral that he is talented writer whose natural style draws you in. Having read the majority of Wallace’s back catalogue I only wished that he were a more prolific writer.

Here's an awkward situation: you buy Danny Wallace's latest book (published 2013) on Amazon, begin reading, and realise it's the same book you bought and read 2 years ago, but with a different name. This is "More awkward situations for men" shamelessly republished to make you think it's something new. I WANT MY MONEY BACK DANNY! I've been a big Danny Wallace fan since the beginning, but I won't be buying any more of his books.

It's just 'More Awkward Situations For Men' with a new cover. It's literally exactly the same. Check out his introduction, it's literally word for word apart they've changed the title! I've always enjoyed Danny's books and this one's not bad (sometimes it's nice to have lots of light-hearted short stories to dip in and out of) but to repackage a previously published book with a different cover and a new title really seems like some dastardly underhand tactics. Will definitely be reading the full descriptions of his books in future to make sure I'm not picking up more duplicate copies!

Danny's main concern in this book is trying to assert himself as the man of the house and a worthy father-but, as usual, awkward situations keep getting in the way... It seems that the more grown-up Danny tries to be, the more ridicukous situations he ends up in. The funniest chapter is when Danny is holding his son whilst talking on the phone and the baby belches, leaving the person on the other end of the phone call convinced that Danny has burped at him.

This book is very funny-but also heart-warming as you can tell that Danny just wants to be a good husband and father. I think anyone struggling to be a "grown-up" will relate to this book!!!

I've read the Yes Man and loved it but for some reason didn't bother with any more of Danny's (obviously I know him) books. I saw an interview with him on tv and thought I would try his new book, 'More Awkward Situations for Men'. I'm glad I did, it's brilliant. In some stories I was laughing so much it was a bit awkward when I was in public! It's a collection of short stories and pieces that he's written as articles so you don't need to read it all at once you can dip in and out. I loved the stories about his new baby, having had a little boy a year ago I could totally relate. Absolutely brilliant book, would definitely recommend.

I got this book recommended by my 16 years old son. It is full of anecdotes which we all experience in our daily lives but accept them as routine. Danny has got a unique way of telling things. They certainly strike a cord with practical life and experience of some. Some of the anecdotes made me think and reflect while most of them bring on the smile. I will recommend this book to all who found themselves in an awkward situation and did not know what to do or say. You will find that you were not the only one.
