Men to Avoid in Art and Life pairs classical fine art with modern captions that epitomize the spirit of mansplaining.

This hilarious book perfectly captures those relatable moments when a man explains to a woman a subject about which he knows considerably less than she does.

Situations include men sharing keen insight on the female anatomy, an eloquent defense of catcalling, or offering sage advice about horseback riding to the woman who owns the horse.

* These less qualified men of antiquity dish out mediocrity as if it's pure genius
* For the women who have endured overbearing men over the centuries
* Written with hilariously painful accuracy

"Now, when you're riding a horse, you need to make sure to keep a good grip on the reins." "These are my horses."

Through cringe-induced empathy, this timeless gift book of shared experiences unites women across history in one of the most powerful forms of resistance: laughter.

* Started as a Twitter thread and quickly gained widespread popularity.
* A great pick for a birthday or Galentine gift for a friend who needs a funny pick-me-up
* Makes a perfect gift for women and feminists with a wry sense of humor, millennials, anyone who loves memes and Internet humor, as well as history and art buffs.
* Add it to the shelf with books like Men Explain Things to Me by Rebecca Solnit, Milk and Vine: Inspirational Quotes from Classic Vines by Emily Beck, and Awards For Good Boys: Tales Of Dating, Double Standards, And Doom by Shelby Lorman.

Review quote

"When men are told that women actually don't want to hear from them on every little thing, they tend to respond with horror, as if this is some new thing. But Tersigni's book offers a funny, but honest truth: we have never wanted to hear from you. We've been getting trolled for ages, and now we have more power to speak against it-and we have the likes of Tersigni to archive this frustration. I want to pass this book out like postcards whenever a man thinks he's the first to 'Well, actually' me.
-Rachel Charlene Lewis, writer and Senior Editor at Bitch Media
