    The most interesting about this book was the Amtrak ticket to Boston I found within its pages and a Walgreen s receipt for Krazy Glue, Hershey s Kisses, and some kind of code scribbled on the back about beautiful celebs Emily the name on the ticket , I hate you Mr Marin the author , I m sorry I saved your book from the trash.

    Ok well I thought this might be a bit of laugh but I had my reservations when I saw that the writer of Sex and the City endorsed it.The book really doesn t flow The chapters all come across as though they are missing something The book was hard to get through as it was quite boring Writing about famous people they have interviewed in itself does not make the writer book interesting, particularly when all he can think about is how he could get them into bed The guy really comes across with all the worst attributes in a man Honestly, confronted with this guy I think I would run a mile in the opposite direction He discusses a few times in the book how he is looking for his next wife and yet finds the most superficial reasons to break up with the multiples of women he has been with I did however, like the Ilene character I think he met his match with her by the by this must be where Horatio from CSI Miami got his idea with the glasses

    By the time the narrator is redeemed by his love for a decent woman and a family tragedy, my opinion of him was so low it was too late Cad is the perfect title for his memoir it makes me miss the sugary silliness of Candace Bushnell.

    An interesting perspective with no feelings spared I lent it once to a real life CAD and he never returned it, I then bought a new copy and lent it to another CAD, again it was never returned I won t be going for the hat trick in the man or the book Good read though

    This bookhas not aged well Gave up after 150 pages that felt like 500 From the writing, most people are caricatures without any humanity Ugh.

    Being a recently married man, I thought this book would probably be the closest I would get to bachelorhood again Needless to say, I was very fired up to read about Rick Marin s life and crazy hijinx Unfortunately, the haphazard chapters and seemingly unrelated stories began to blur into one another My interest in Rick s adventures quickly waned Does this mean I ve matured for the worse, or was the book s writing to blame I am certainly hoping it is the latter, because the thought of it being the former is too much for me to stomach right now.I suggest looking elsewhere for a titillating tale of male bachelordom.

    This book had it s moments, and could be entertaining at times with the famous people names being dropped here and there Moira Kelly, Vanilla Ice, Marissa Tomei Early 1990 s stars etc , but mostly I found this book to be kind of boring The main guy, Rick Marin, seems to be annoying as he breaks up with girls for the dumbest reasons I haven t dated for about two years, but apparently all you need to do is get a pair of glasses, take them off slowly, and say, Yeah, I don t like to talk about it It being your last relationship, or marriage in this case Are you serious Rule NO 1 don t do that.

    Bubble gum enjoyable but not really the kind of thing that sticks with you Prose is overly affected to be clever and funny, which isn t necessarily bad but reads like trying too hard here Occasionally hits one out of the park with humor Characters flash by without much depth, and sometimes this works well as synecdoche, as in the case of describing his wife.The death of his father is handled gracefully and powerfully, which is why this book gets three stars instead of two Not maudlin but still raw The ending still feels too pat to me overalll there s a forced sense to it.

    Lisi and I both had such high hopes from this book We d expected it would somehow be a combination between Sex in the City from a man s perspective and another book we d read called Tommy s Tale which actually was hilarious and amazing Unfortunately, it was neither It was simply the mundane diary of a man looking for his next wife in NYC, dropping names and spouting mindly entertaining anecdotes.

    My friend Karen gave me this book and it has been passed around It s usually seen on my bookshelf, someone remarks on how stupid the book must be I encourage them to borrow it, they read it in a couple of hours and call to tell me how they laughed so hard It s light, it s fun, but sometimes that s what a book should be.
