Adjusted for inflation, millennials spend 50% more on rent, 75% more on healthcare and 150% more on college (while earning $10,000 less) than baby boomers did at the same age. Two-thirds can't afford to buy a house or save for retirement. It was only a matter of time until s**t went down...
From Marty Beckerman, author of bestselling parody The Heming Way ("laugh-out-loud"—USA Today), comes a timely, uproarious and dope AF tale of the new generation gap. They killed shopping malls, chain restaurants, taxis, newspapers, bar soap, landline phones, cable TV and gluten...and now they’re coming for youuuuuuuuuuuu!

More than fifty years have passed since the death of Ernest Hemingway, history's ultimate man, and young males today—obsessed with Facebook, Twitter, and Playstation—know nothing about his legendary brand of rugged, alcoholic masculinity. They cannot skin a fish, dominate a battlefield, or transform majestic creatures of the Southern Hemisphere into piano keyboards.
The Heming Way demonstrates how modern eunuchs—brainwashed by PETA and Alcoholics Anonymous—can learn from Papa's unparalleled example: drunken, unshaven, meat-devouring, wife-divorcing, and gloriously self-destructive.
How to kill enough animals to render a species endangered—just like Papa!
Getting your friends to think drinking a daiquiri is manly . . . just by drinking one nine yourself
Achieving sufficiently high testosterone levels to never have to worry about the chance of having a daughter instead of a son
And much more!
Profane, insightful, hilarious and loaded with more than 150 photos, facts and insights about Papa, The Heming Way is a difficult path, and not for the weak, but truth is manlier than fiction.
