Blokes are enormously hard to buy presents for but this oneís a corker and with Fatherís Day coming up, keep it in mind as a gift for younger Dads. Marc Ellis and Charlie Haddrell have drawn up a comprehensive list of every type of New Zealand man you will find on these shores along with their defining characteristics. For example, the Big Fresh, a fulla of Polynesian descent, usually very large and very hungry, loyal to a fault but requiring a close eye when on the turps. Or the Finkle - an effeminate and fruity homosexual fulla who has no ugly friends and will usually drive two door sports cars because heís too weak in the wrist to drive larger vehicles. The usual suspects are there - Bogans, Cow Cockies, Scarfies -along with some new varieties - Waoris (white men who want to be Maori), Panda bears (corpulent fullas from the Asian subcontinent), Wodgewicks (thespians and self professed intellectuals) and many more- itís very, very funny although not for the politically correct or those who are strait laced. Marc includes anecdotes of his encounters with the various fullas which are in equal parts horrifying and hilarious. Easy to pick up, a good laugh and clever with it - a book thatís just like Marc really.

Thans Kerre - you're right- this is a great buy for blokes. So good to see some good old kiwi bloke talk in a far too PC world.
