First, Brett Cohen's "Stuff Every Man Should Know" (Quirk Books, 2009) taught men things such as how to pick up a woman (with five pick-up lines in five different languages) and even propose, how to tie a necktie, how to make the perfect omelet, how to ask for a raise and how to talk their way out of a traffic ticket.

Then, its companion volume, Alanna Kalb's "Stuff Every Woman Should Know" (Quirk Books, 2010), taught women things like how to throw a cocktail party, how to select a signature scent, how to perform a breast self-exam, how to throw a football, how to host a cocktail party, how to parallel park and even good responses to bad pick-up lines

Ah, but what about once they've taken the plunge?

Now, on their heels comes the volume that both genders might treasure and reference - Eric San Juan's "Stuff Every Husband Should Know" (Quirk Books, 2011) - and the 144-page work hits the shelves on Tuesday.

Finally, the priceless practical wisdom that all wives hope their husbands possess is gathered in one book.

The author provides both new husbands and their long-suffering brethren alike with helpful knowledge of all kinds such as words to forget you ever knew, stuff you should learn how to say, how to drive together in peace, learn to listen (or at least pretend to), that time of the month and you, looking at other women politely, wife space comes before man cave, how to keep house (without forsaking guy time), 10 things every married man should have and how not to fight over money.

The slick, pocket-sized hardcover ($9.95, Quirk Books) would appear to be the perfect gift for engagement parties, weddings, anniversaries, Father's Day, or ... well, for any time of the year, really.

San Juan is the editor of a seven-newspaper chain in Central Jersey and co-author of "A Year of Hitchcock: 52 Weeks with the Master of Suspense."

A decade into marriage, he says he is delighted to find that his wife and son still seem healthy and well fed.

And, yes, Philadelphia-based Quirk Books does have this thing about quirky books.

And that's a good thing.
