After breaking his arm, author Sidney Showalter decided to tackle his housecleaner's job. Clueless as to where to begin, his preliminary exploration led him to a bookstore where he discovered a cleaning book for a single man, like himself, did not exist.

Showalter's new book "The Single Man's Housecleaning Playbook: A Quick and Simple Guide to Cleaning Your Home Like a Pro" (published by AuthorHouse) fills this void, teaching the single man everything he needs to know about cleaning with a twist: football tactics.

"With lack of advice, I decided to write the playbook," Showalter said. "With my mother's directions, college and Navy experience, I was able to write a book that explained all of the basics. I decided it would be patterned after a football playbook that house cleaners could refer to when they needed to keep themselves on the right route."

This guide is comprised with funny anecdotes, helpful lists and comprehensive charts outlining housecleaning in football terms and provides a detailed yet down-to-earth approach to making a home shine. Room by room, Showalter explains what products and methods should be used to effectively clean a house without outside help, while also appraising a crisis game plan for last-minute cleaning.

"Mothers may have given both sons and daughters guidance and instructions but, more than likely, not enough," Showalter says. "If we didn't take home economics, we were left to fend for ourselves. A book like mine could benefit a great number of people and save them a lot of time and effort."
