Marc Ellis’ Good Fullas, by Marc Ellis (Headline, RRP $44.99):
Love him or hate him, Marc Ellis is the perfect choice to pen a guide to Kiwi blokes, being such a good Kiwi bloke himself.
This book is 248 pages of silliness that takes the reader on a guided tour of the Kiwi bloke species, in all his many guises: from the Ginga to the Bogan, they are all in there.
Sure, some of the sub-species are ever-so-slightly invented by the author but that just adds to the fun.
I’m sure anyone reading the book will be able to come up with a sub-species or two of their own but the guide is reasonably comprehensive.
And if you’re ever stuck in a boring meeting or in an airport departure lounge waiting to board a flight that’s running late, playing “spot the bloke species” is a great way to pass the time.
