More than fifty years have passed since the death of Ernest Hemingway, history's ultimate man, and young males today - obsessed with Facebook, Twitter, and PlayStation - know nothing about his legendary brand of rugged, alcoholic masculinity. They cannot skin a fish, dominate a battlefield, or transform majestic creatures of the Southern Hemisphere into piano keyboards. "The Heming Way" demonstrates how modern eunuchs - brainwashed by PETA and Alcoholics Anonymous - can learn from Papa's unparalleled example: drunken, unshaven, meat-devouring, wife-divorcing, and gloriously self-destructive. Advice includes: how to kill enough animals to render a species endangered - just like Papa!; getting your friends to think drinking a daiquiri is manly...just by drinking one nine yourself; achieving sufficiently high testosterone levels to never have to worry about the chance of having a daughter instead of a son; and much more! Profane, insightful, hilarious and loaded with more than 150 photos, facts and insights about Papa, "The Heming Way" is a difficult path, and not for the weak, but truth is manlier than fiction.
