Nick Harper is a freelance writer who has worked for all manner of fine publications down the years, from the Guardian and Men's Health to Q, FHM and FourFourTwo. This is his third book, following on from his debut, Man Skills, and the follow up, If It's Broke, Fix It. He is about so high, sports a beard that is a confusing mix of brown, ginger and grey, and has spent the last five years raising twin boys with his wife. Hence the grey. He is tired but very happy.
