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?

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!

This is just 'More awkward situations for men' given a new title and an 'as new' price tag. Total rip off!

It seems very fitting that the following occurred this very morning:

I am excited. Danny's new book has been dispatched and the likelihood is that it will come today. I am up early and waiting as patiently as possible.

Later, much later, there is a knock at the door. Ah ha! The Postman. I rush to the door and open it. There, right where the Postman should have been, was a woman I have never seen before, with an amazon parcel in her hands. I look excitedly at the parcel and then at her. She does not look excited at all. She looks slightly angry.

This phases me a bit but I look back at the parcel and start to get excited again. She extends the parcel to me and I eagerly grasp it - but she will not let it go. Instead she launches into a rant about how stupid the Postman was for posting it in her letterbox and not mine! I am trying my best to be sympathetic but starting to feel a little uncomfortable now as she won't let go and she is making me feel that somehow this is all my fault. I shake my head and nod at all the right moments agreeing with her about this great injustice whilst trying to make sure that she knows I am not a Postman and definitely not the Postman concerned. I am at the point of apologising on behalf of the Post Office and all its employees when she finally lets go and leaves in a huff.

I close the door and return to the living room feeling like a small child who has been sternly told off when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror clutching my precious package that I know contains Danny's brand new book. Staring back at me is a disheveled individual in a lime green Mighty Boosh T-Shirt and pyjama bottoms. An individual who is definitely experiencing a very very bad hair day as well as an individual with questionable fashion sense.

Having never read a 'Danny Wallace' book before, I came to this with an open mind and a five hour flight...after getting into the format I literally was laughing out loud on a crowded plane..people were looking at me, they thought i was upset as I tried to stifle my amusement...the inappropriate picture on the womans phone tickled me.... I cant fault the book, it was light holiday reading and made me want to read more.

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.

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!!!
