    Description

    The Average Indian Male is a book written by the comedian and India’s popular VJ, Cyrus Broacha.

    Summary of the Book

    The Average Indian Male is a brilliant satire on Indian men seen from the perspective of the comedian, Cyrus Broacha. According to him, he is also one of those men who picks their nose in public and love their mismatched clothing. He explains why Indian men spit in public, why they don’t wear belts that match their shoe colour, why they are generally short, and so on. He groups Indian men on the basis of four different regions. The book is divided into two parts. The first part is like an agony aunt column - generalized questions are asked by made-up men and women, and Broacha answers them all! The second part tries to understand the psychology of Indian men, answering questions like why they are never on time and why they don’t walk on the pavements as they are supposed to. The Average Indian Male also talks about the Indian society with its inherent hierarchies wittily, and explains the concept of ‘family friends’ and so on. This book is not much about acquiring deeper insights into the psychology of Indian men. It rather wishes to make the reader laugh, with Broacha’s clever and hysterical takes on the stereotypical views of and about the average Indian male.

    Trash

    The worst book i have read this year..Cyrus criticizes others in his way of vulgar humorous jokes..I think time has come to paid back the same coin..For the first time he tried to do a serious thing in a joking way i.e writting a book and he has proved me right that he cannot write ...Worthless book.Gift it to your enemy.. he might search for a new enemy ..leaving you.in one word TRASH..

    Cyrus!!!! The Doctor

    As per the review, the book is not a riotous account of Indian men. Yes there are parts that Cyrus writes about in his usual tongue in cheek way, but that is it...

    Buy this book if you have a long flight to catch and you are not feeling sleepy. This book is guarented to make you snore

    Below Average Book by Ordinary Author

    Quite a boring book, not worth reading. Nothing special abt Indian men, completely disconnected stories. Sometimes while reading this book, you feel like throwing this book out.. I'm never gonna buy any book of this Author in future.

    An attempt at being funny

    A book about Indian Men is not easy to write. We come with our own traits and mindsets and perceptions. Men in general are difficult to gauge (just like women) and more so are Indian Men, who are considered very unique. But obviously, have you met, “The Average Indian Male”? He is the apple of his mother’s eye, thinks no end of himself, wants to dominate the world and farts wherever convenient. I do not subscribe to these generalizations. The book does sometimes and sometimes it doesn’t.

    It gets better with each chapter...

    Starting is a bit slow...but later on it just picks up the speed! If you can imagine cyrus speaking in your head, you're good to go.

    Though I've been reading a lot of frat-ire blogs online for years...this book is targeted at us "The (Average) Indian male".

    Its funny, sarcastic and wake up call for most of the men. hope this helps you better yourself ;)

    Don't bother

    Just finished reading. I can summarize the book as just a collection of randomly arranged nonsensical words.

    Sure some pages actually made me laugh. But there are several places where the author is completely side tracked.

    May be worth reading once. Do not expect quality literature in this.

    Cyrus & the aam Aadmi

    Well I believe the Indian male is busy condescending Cyrus as he may have successfully tried to present the blue-print of Aam aadmi.
    I had fun reading it. If one reads the book imagining the way cyrus speaks then it does make the read better.
    However some of the articles i did find a little boring. But then these articles can be pardoned as the rest made me laugh.
    My co-passengers would look at me as i would be laughing while reading this book during my train / bus travel.
    I really did enjoy ...

    It was a waste of time. He is better on TV.

    It was a waste of time. Abstract text ( though like an indian male), but nothing to read about. He is better on TV.

    horribly below average

    maybe it's time that cyrus becomes serious about comedy. the fact that this is his second book means that people read his first. sadly i didn't.
    it's is not really funny, somewhat like his show on television.
    i guess he is too confident about his comedy which now maybe doesn't even make him laugh..or maybe his producer, friend, everything does.
