London: What does every man think apart from sex? A British author says ‘nothing’ and has written a book on it. Except that the book has just a cover and has 200 blank pages.

Sheridan Simove`s book is titled – ‘What Every Man Thinks About Apart From Sex’, the Daily Express reported.

Students across Britain have understood the joke and are flocking to bookstores to buy the 4.69-pound paperback.

The book has hit number 744 on the Amazon list, ahead of Dan Brown`s ‘The Da Vinci Code’ (number 2,910) and J.K. Rowling`s ‘Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix’ (2,406).

Nottingham University student Jess Lloyd said: "I bought a copy for my mate as a joke and he started using it as a note pad for lectures. Now everyone seems to have one. It`s started a real craze on campus."

Fans have also joined in with book reviews.

"A must read for students studying anything to do with gender politics", "Couldn`t put it down" and "Deeply insightful", a few reviews said.

One buyer even says: "I can`t wait for the sequel!"

Sheridan, 39, is an Oxford University psychology graduate. He said: "I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would outsell Harry Potter."
