Books for a Man’s Man (or Woman)

Grill ItDoes your guy only cook if there is an open flame? Is ESPN his default channel? Does he consider the 18th hole to be sacred ground?

If this describes your fella (or you), you’ll love this trio of books from DK Publishing.

Grill It! is one of those glorious cookbooks packed with inspiring photographs, short and illuminating travel stories, and recipes galore. If you thought grills were just for beef, prepare to be enlightened. You’ll find out about the techniques and tools for grilling up appetizers, snacks, and main courses of chicken, red meat, fish, vegetables, and more. Pretty much anything edible can be turned into a grilled treat.

From the first glance of the Astroturf cover, fans will admire The Sports Book. Settle bets immediately or learn more about the world of sports with up-to-date information from leading sports experts on more than 200 sports. The section on the Olympic Games caught my attention–next time I watch I may actually have a clue about what is going on.

The Golf Book is flying off bookstore shelves faster than a shot down the fairway. This book not only discusses the history of the game, but also provides insight into the latest equipment, dissects professional play, and provides tips for golfers of all skill levels.

All three books make fabulous additions to any connoisseur’s library and would be perfect Father’s Day Gifts.

WANT IT: These books and more illustrated guides are available directly from DK Publishing or through Amazon: Grill It! (DK Publishing; $16.50), The Sports Book ($23), The Golf Book ($26)
