Is there a reason some girls grew up worshipping The Cure while others were hot for Mötley Crüe? Could your love of the Beastie Boys have anything to do with your current beau’s commitment issues? Have you ever wished for the kind of timeless romantic wisdom that can only come from years spent listening to David Bowie in your bedroom? Wonder no more! EVERY ROSE HAS ITS THORN: A ROCK N ROLL FIELD GUIDE TO GUYS is here to help (and/or moderately entertain) you. Packed with quizzes, true life tales, lots of words, and illustrations in glorious black and white, this book will help you better identify and understand the rockstars and wanna- be’s you’ll meet on romance’s bumpy tour. What kind of guy . . .Owns a gorilla suit, but not an interview suit? Uses a broomstick as a curtain rod and a T-shirt as a pillowcase yet spends entire paychecks optimizing the gaming capabilities of his computer? Wants sex but not as much as he wants to watch Adult Swim? See Chapter 4. What kind of guy . . .Considers a car, a job, and a place to live “nice to have” but mostly optional? Has a life story that reads like a reverse Horatio Alger novel? Is self-proclaimed “lazy” about: brushing his teeth, returning monies borrowed, dressing open wounds? See Chapter 1. What kind of guy . . .Can school you on complicated investment strategies but keeps sending you viruses on Facebook? Arrives at your 40’s Party in period clothes with a martini shaker, instead of in an Adidas sweatsuit with a case of malt liquor? Has lots of baggage but really nice luggage? See Chapter 9.
