Ian shares lessons learned from his embarrassing escapades and tackles some of the biggest questions men and women have about each other: Do guys know they favor one breast over the other? Why do women like jerks? Why don't guys call? Why don't women call back? What's the best way to approach a woman at a bar? He admits it's harder to be a woman than a man and tells why. Ian's funny, edgy style and fresh advice, have enabled him to do something no one has done effectively previously--write a book about dating and sex that appeals to both genders. Unlike other authors, Ian is not just comfortable with his "game;" he is comfortable with women. His book spawned his syndicated dating advice column "Lunch is Not a Date" and has garnered great reviews from the pua community. It also landed him a spot on Lifetime's site as a dating expert. His stories and advice truly appeal to everyone. The book has ranked #1 in humor on Amazon.ca and other sites repeatedly. Publishers are beginning to translate it into other languages. Ian's advice is appealing because it is fresh, original, and works. He doesn't lump all men and women into one category; rather, he examines the different types of each and how to work with their personalities, like diffusing the bitter friend in order to pick up the woman you like or why women shouldn't date their guy friends. While other experts prattle on about tired techniques to get a phone number, Ian tells you how to make sure the woman will return your call, not just get a number. It's no wonder this book is a big hit. From the Publisher Comedian Ian Coburn wanted to share with the world the zany stories that happened to him with women. They were too long for a standup routine, so he offered to write that routine in a book. We happily obliged. It just so happens that Ian also wanted to share dating and sex advice that he's learned from his various escapades. After each story, he reviews what he learned, gives a few examples of how he put that knowledge to successful use in the future, and provides quick pieces of dating or sex tips between chapters. Unlike self-help books, Ian's book is actually categorized as "humor." It has to be; it's simply too funny to be categorized in another genre. If you like standup comedy, you'll love this book.

To make matters worse, my mom gave me a book about chickens laying eggs and lambs suckling. Someone shoot me, I thought. What I needed was a book with honest, adult advice--which wasn't afraid to get graphic when necessary--that taught me what to say, what actions to take, and how to read women. My sisters seemed to need similar information about guys. It would help if the stories were funny so I didn't feel so alone and self-conscious.

    (Full review can be found at the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography [cclapcenter.com].) For those who don't know, in the years I was a creative writer myself (mostly in the 1990s), one of the scenes I spent a lot of time in was the poetry-slam one; indeed, the Chicago slam community in the '90s was the largest on the planet at the time, due mostly to the slam actually being invented here by a guy named Marc Smith (at a bar called the Green Mill, which believe it or not is just four blo (Full review can be found at the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography [cclapcenter.com].) For those who don't know, in the years I was a creative writer myself (mostly in the 1990s), one of the scenes I spent a lot of time in was the poetry-slam one; indeed, the Chicago slam community in the '90s was the largest on the planet at the time, due mostly to the slam actually being invented here by a guy named Marc Smith (at a bar called the Green Mill, which believe it or not is just four blocks from where I live). And as part of being involved with the slam community back then, I also ended up getting involved a little with the comedy scene as well; and that's because, for those who don't know, the arts here in Chicago tend to intermix between disciplines a lot more than in many other cities. Steppenwolf Traffic series, in which the famed theatre company invites a series of writers, musicians, dancers, performance artists and others to collaborate on cutting-edge projects, which are then presented for live audiences in the smaller second space of the Steppenwolf complex at North and Halsted.) You see, the stand-up comedians here in Chicago (the ones who haven't moved to LA or New York, that is) tend to be more literary than a lot of the others, more cutting-edge, and this is why certain slam poets like myself tended to do well in those venues back then, as well as certain comedians doing well in traditional poetry venues. And thus it was that I became friends with a whole group of comedians back in the '90s, which I just found such a strange and fascinating experience; because really, just about every comedian I've met now in life seems to have such an odd combination of personality traits, a kind of overwhelming pathos about the world that hides just underneath that incessant drive to make people laugh. The more one studies comedy and what exactly comedians do, the more one realizes just how much anger and blackness there is at the core of the creative process, and how the best comedians are able to take this burning anger and turn it into something that makes the general public guffaw and applaud and in general have a light and entertaining evening. And believe me, if you ever want an interesting evening, go out drinking sometime with someone who can pull something like that off. It's what I kept thinking about, to tell you the truth, while reading through Chicago comedian Ian Coburn's first full-length book, the comedically tragic faux-real-faux dating guide God Is a Woman, which (if I have my story right) is also the first book from new Chicago basement press Firefly Glow. Because let's just put the cards on the table right away: the book is funny, and it's offensive, and it's thought-provoking, and it's offensive, and did I mention that it has the possibility of really offending a certain amount of you out there, especially of the female persuasion? Because ultimately, what this book is "about" is actually...

    Like Neil Strauss's The Game only with slightly more attention to a life goal (rather than merely scoring with women), Mr. Coburn details his life on the comedy circuit. He also outlines his attempts to get sex with women: his successes, close calls, near-misses and narrow brushes with psychotic women, oversized boyfriends and the cops. As he navigates his way across the country and in and out of the beds of various females, he also peppers his memoirs with advice about getting women, dealing wi Like Neil Strauss's The Game only with slightly more attention to a life goal (rather than merely scoring with women), Mr. Coburn details his life on the comedy circuit. He also outlines his attempts to get sex with women: his successes, close calls, near-misses and narrow brushes with psychotic women, oversized boyfriends and the cops. As he navigates his way across the country and in and out of the beds of various females, he also peppers his memoirs with advice about getting women, dealing with their moods, figuring out what's going on in their minds and when to cut loose and go on to the next conquest when the previous one doesn't work out to his advantage. While Mr. Coburn tries to come off as a nice guy and a man who's honest about what he wants (as compared to the other jerks who lie simply to score), the book's tone slowly goes from being jocular to bitter. His facile theory about God being a woman (out to make men unhappy, of course, and to destroy other women) becomes hostile digs against this supposed deity. He even trots out the B word. What a surprise. In the course of learning to get women (he talks about dating when he merely means sex), he abandons being a "good guy" or being friends with women. He learns what other guys learn, i.e., that women likes jerks. The main difference is that Mr. Coburn explains why. In between chapters, he provides "quickies"--short encapsulations about his observations of women, the dating scene and his tips for dealing with either. He makes some rather good points but the book's humor falls flatter and flatter as he descends into the depths of sordid behavior. When he finally realizes he's become a jerk--no better than the ones he denigrates--it's a case of too little, too late. In the end, he brutally states that dating is a game. That's all it is and we'd better accept it. If we don't want to play, then we must not date. A rather sour punchline to a tired and tiresome joke. For a book about a comedian, this simply isn't very funny.

    Bit of a silly book, part dating advice and part comedy. I can't really think of anything memorable from it except Coburn seems to brag at how many women he meets because he is a stand up comedian. Bit of a silly book, part dating advice and part comedy.
