Y&R Bad Boy Pens A Good Guy’s Guide To Living


THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Deacon may not be the type of guy mothers want their daughters to marry, but in real life, his portrayer, Sean Kanan, has written a guide with plenty of good advice and tips for today’s man. The Modern Gentleman Cooking And Entertaining With Sean Kanan is available starting Tuesday, September 13. “I don’t want people to think this is another cookbook by a celebrity,” Kanan tells Soaps In Depth. “Yes, it started out as a ‘cookbook’ and there are recipes in it, but the last thing that this is is a cookbook. I wanted to write a book that would help people with relationships.”

Kanan’s tome advises men on how to maneuver in today’s ever-changing world. “Men have never had a mentor,” the actor muses. “Women have had Oprah and Martha Stewart, but men have never had anyone to teach them a lot of the stuff that women wish they knew how to do.”

In addition to recipes, Kanan offers advice on everything from how men should treat women to how guys can set the dinner table. “I’m tired of hearing my friends say that they’re a nice guy and can’t get a date. My book deals with dating, sexual politics and flower arranging. I ever have a chapter on ‘sexting.'”

The actor plans to juggle his on-going Y&R role while doing a book tour. Check the schedule below and to see if Kanan’s coming to a bookstore near you! The book is also available on
