5.0 out of 5 stars A Bit of What You Fancy Does You Good!, 4 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Do you find sex fascinating and enjoyable? Do you like reading books which are amusing, entertaining and informative all at once? If you do you'll find Tom Cutler's latest book `Slap and Tickle - The unusual History of Sex and the people who have it' absolutely to your liking. It is a romp through just about every aspect of human sexuality and an exposure of some of the most famous sex scandals. It is written in a relaxed and humorous style based on exhaustive - possibly even exhausting - research. I found it great fun to read with the bonus of learning some stuff I didn't know. And if you want to read beyond `Slap and Tickle' there is a useful list of books you might plunder. I'll certainly be giving at least one copy as a present so that mine is not `borrowed', never to return.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cutler Does it again!, 4 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Gentleman's Instant Genius Guide adds another very welcome title to Tom Cutler's growing list of funny books. I spent part of my weekend dipping into it, laughing at his jokes - well, most of them - and the twist he puts on the world. And I learned facts I didn't know, or didn't know I needed to know - many of which are actually useful. (Can't wait to try my hand at mixing and drinking a good Manhattan or trying out some of his fifty ways of becoming important. And as for his 'History of False teeth from the Etruscans onwards' - there must be something in that I can put to good use. I like his style too. It's very relaxed and reader friendly - much more like he's just bought you a drink and got one elbow on the bar than slogging away at a keyboard amidst piles of research notes.
They say humour doesn't travel, but this guy's reputation is international - Amazon is listing his earlier work in three languages other than English - so buy him and you can laugh with the world! I hope his list of titles continues to grow. Meanwhile I'll enjoy this latest addition and hope there's even more to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spiffing Fun for Boys and Girls of All Ages!, 10 Oct. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What, I wonder, was the original motivation for all those boys' self help books of yore? To inculcate skills useful to King and Empire whilst providing a wholesome diversions from idle self-fiddling during the ennui of the long hols, perhaps. ('The devil finds work...' and all that!)

Whatever... In '211 Things a Bright Boy Can Do', Tom Cutler certainly fulfils his aims to amuse, amaze and inform. The activities he covers range from the downright daft, such as How to Light a Fart, to the really useful, like how to tell if someone really fancies you and How to Make a Pantograph. (Myself, I've always wanted to know how to make a Woolton pie - now I can get baking.) And he does all this, not in a pale pastiche of the Boy's Own Paper but in an up-to-the-minute style which is both extremely funny and good humoured. It's good fun. The instructions are clear, too.

If you're a bright boy of any age - or a girl, as bright as they get, even - make it 212 things and buy this book. You'll enjoy it. I did.
