Following on from the hit US television series, the QUEER EYE book teaches men how to refine their own styles without throwing away their entire wardrobe or spending a fortune. Their essential 'make better' advice focuses on easy but lasting lifestyle transformations. From Kyan's instructions on how often to wash your hair to Carson's explanation of why shirts are the new ties, from Ted's strategies for ordering wine and Thom's suggestions on a better bathroom to Jai's hints on shaking hands, QUEER EYE is filled with clear, direct advice on the issues that confront every man. They advise on how to buy jeans, suits and jackets, what to wear when it says black tie, the classics every man should own, the best grooming products and quick fixes for the flat - all done in a lighthearted and entertaining way. QUEER EYE, the book, has more advice than could ever fit in the television show and is guaranteed to turn any frog into a prince charming.show more

A must buy for every man whose life needs tszuj-ing' * * * * * HEAT magazine 'If you have a straight friend, brother, uncle or workmate who seriously needs help, then this is the book to buy them. He'll go from geek to sleek in no time. And, even if you aren't a clueless hetero, there's still a lot of handy 'Hip Tips' to take on board, like how to achieve the perfect shave (its the kind of thing no one ever really shows you), which essentials should be in your wardrobe and how to make the most of your flat, all delivered in the Fab Five's trademark snarky fashion.' BOYZ 'At last - the ultimate present for the man in your life... it contains invaluable tips for men on entertaining, dressing, personal grooming, social etiquette and generally adopting a lifestyle so utterly suave they'll never leave their clothes in a pile on the floor again... Informative, hilarious and as stylish as the fab five themselves.' DAILY RECORD 'Jammed with witty quotes from the fellas, this is a fun and colourful page flicker that'll come in handy when you need a stocking-filler for your lad this Christmas.'
