The Ryder Cup, the Ashes, the FA Cup, the Claret Jug, the Webb Ellis and the Green Jacket, the Stanley, the America and many more: men have always loved their trophies.

Whatever their game of choice, winning its the ultimate prize is something nearly every man has dreamed about. Well, thanks to this brilliant guide to the most celebrated trophies in the world, he can now get close enough to almost taste the glory.

What Every Man Wants unearths the essentials on every revered tournament prize that has ever been fought over in modern times. If you want to be more than a contender - and enjoy the spoils of victory - you need to know what you'll be up against. From the reasons behind the bizarre codes of sporting conduct linked to each trophy, to who you're up against if you want to get involved, and tips on how to collect the silverware, this book tells you what can't be found in any rulebook and why it's not just the 'taking part' that counts.

Author bio:

Andrew Mann has watched, listened to and read about sport far too much in his lifetime than is healthy, perhaps staying alive only as a result of playing a fair bit of it as well. He would like to win the Ashes, the FA Cup and the Green Jacket.
