What is a Bloke?
What is a Bloke? This is the question that has occupied the greatest minds of the anthropological and sociological worlds for many years. Not in a literal sense, of course, at the base level, the definition of a Bloke is perfectly clear: a Bloke is a human male native to Australia, typically between 150 and 200 centimetres tall, frequently partial to beer and ventilated footwear, who has built a mighty nation from the scraps of colonialism and inappropriate farming practices. That much is obvious.
Writer and comedian Ben Pobjie examines the different types of Bloke in Australia today, giving the reader a unique and expert insight into Blokedom. What makes a Bloke tick? What do Blokes like to do? Where do they go? These questions and more are answered in this hilarious and irreverent book.
As a woman who is unlucky in love, I'm very grateful to the author for writing this educational book about men. Now I know the different types of men and how to spot them, I know to avoid all men and become asexual! Thanks Ben!
