A British comedian has made his first best-selling book that is currently outselling the likes of popular novels Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and The DaVinci Code.
The punch line--- the work titled “What Every Man Thinks About Apart From Sex” is a book filled with 200 empty pages.

The book, which implies men think about nothing outside of sex, was written by comedian Sheridan Simove, and he tells AOL News that he’s ‘fiercely proud’ to call him self a best seller.
He got the idea to turn a joke into a book, and "What is wonderful about it is that people want to laugh," Simove said.
Simove’s idea came after publishing a book he’d written for five years about his life’s successes and failures, which flopped in comparison, only reaching 5,000 on the Amazon charts over two years.
When it came to publishing the book, an ISBN number was issued for its publishing, but British authorities refused to grant the publication the tax-free status it usually does for books.
However, getting his book off the ground wasn’t his first brush with controversy. Simove told AOL News he had problems with his bank when he changed his name to God.
"My bank was very angry with me," he said. "They said that they couldn't put me in the system with only one name.
"I said put me down as 'Almighty God’… they said they would close all my accounts. In the end, I changed my name back again."
Behind the success of “What Every Man Thinks About Apart From Sex”, Simove says he plans to follow up with the sequel, “Reasons to Trust Politicians”.
According to AOL News, Simove’s book sold out on its first print run, reaching spot no. 744, over Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code" at No. 2,910 and JK Rowling's "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" at No. 2,406.
