!!Tropes in this work:
* AmusingInjuries: ''A Is for Asskicking''.
* BiggusDickus: ''B Is for Boner'', where Maddox attributes the rise of man to the penis (helped by people using their boners are weapons, pieces of art or, in AdolfHitler's case, being a [[IncrediblyLamePun really big dick]]).
* BlackComedy: "H Is for Hot Sauce" has Maddox sneaking hot sauce into a co-worker's sandwich. She dies due to allergy shock, but not before Maddox thinks she's having an orgasm and the guy who tried to [[FacePalm perform the Heimlich maneuver]] on her was knocked out by Maddox.
* BlackComedyRape: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]]. The ''P Is for Pirate'' entry advises pirates trying to adjust to modern society to ''not'' force themselves upon a woman - it is a faux pas. Instead, they must go on dates, get rejected, and eventually score third base on the second date or so.
* {{Bowdlerise}}: The English release of the book left a few things out, most notably the headbutt to the ovaries on the A Is For Asskicking section.
* BreadEggsMilkSquick:
-->''Shopping for a gun:'' '''STRAIGHT'''
-->''Shopping for a gun with your buddy:'' '''STRAIGHT:'''
-->''Shopping for a gun with your buddy while you hold each others' cocks:'' '''GAY'''
* TheCasanova: Subverted, and played for laughs. The methods Maddox tries on his ex-girlfriend only creep her out and lead to his house [[NoodleIncident getting robbed while he was blacked out on wine, waiting for his ex to come over, having been "completely convinced" she was hot and bothered for him]].
* ChuckNorrisFacts: A standard list of feats, and the day Maddox went to visit his fortress of death.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Maddox places a baby in the trash for it not liking hot sauce, then throws the mother down the stairs and jizzes on her towels for being loud.
** Maddox's ex steals everything from his house after he gets drunk (he thinks she's going to his house for a night of fucking) for leaving her a creepy message.
* DolledUpInstallment: The ''Longer. Harder.'' edition adds in the 1-2-3s of Manliness.
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: The premise between the ''F Is for Female Wrestling'' chapter.
* MemeticBadass: Invoked: Maddox writes about badass lumberjacks, which takes up an entire chapter and claims that they're the number one reason for endangered species (done when lumberjacks need breakfast, riding giant bulls to skewer species for a kebab), pirates, and Maddox himself.
* SelfDeprecation: Maddox makes fun of his attempts at romancing (see TheCasanova).
** There's a loving drawing of Maddox sucking an invisible dick. He thinks he's telling a Firefighter to "suck it".
* SeriousBusiness: Subverted. Maddox has a large (or at least loud) hatedom which doesn't seem to comprehend the concept of tongue in cheek humor and who apparently took the book seriously on every level.
* StayInTheKitchen: The ''Obedience'' chapter (which is written in the style of a dog training manual), and everywhere else. Again, played for laughs.
* [[SwissArmyWeapon Swiss Army Boner]]: You can use it as a coaster, club, or shade for your less-endowed friends, though Maddox suggests sunscreen.
* TakeThat: Mixed in with StealthParody. Maddox calls out morons who mosh at rock concerts, people who fight for guitar picks, people who type in all uppercase, and so on. In fact, the article on how to piss people off is more of a list of Maddox's pet peeves, such as being an ass on the roads.
* ThisLoserIsYou
* ToiletHumor: "D is for Taking A Dump," in which he outlines the ways you can make a phone call while letting one out, and giving good excuses to explain inevitable bathroom noises:
--> "Loud shit blasts: A truck backfired/You dropped a roll of coins into a tub of oatmeal."
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: There's a picture of a lumberjack German Suplexing a longhorn steer.
