Journalist and writer Chris Windle answers some vital questions about modern man: why do men use satnav if they don’t trust it? Why can they sometimes be found weeing as high as they can up a wall? Using the knowledge he gathered in a completely unscientific manner while writing his book, Why Men Skim Stones, let him take you on a journey through man’s foibles.
