New York magazine's Daniel Maurer, whose upcoming glossary of guyspeak -- tentatively titled Brocabulary -- makes clear there's more to being macho than watching Ultimate Fighting and drinking from the milk carton.

Words such as mancation (a male-bonding getaway), bromance (the platonic love between two "hetero life-mates") and power tool (a guy who has achieved wealth or status despite being a complete jerk) are the male language-lover's answer to driving a Mercedes, instantly communicating masculine savvy without giving the appearance of trying too hard.

Think of this book as your secret man-i-festo to guy talk, just don't broverdose on it.
