Can this mean a book made for men?
Not really. "en mannebok" would be closer, but it'd be better to say "en bok for menn".
Darn, I thought I just saw a joke go by.
This was getting dangerously close to a "Bic for Her" phenomenon.
Why couldn't it be: "A book of a man"?
How can I distinguish between "a man's book" and "one man's book"?
"en manns bok" is ambiguous. It translates both to "a man's book" and to "one man's book".
"én manns bok" = "one man's book"
Clearly this must be referring to Garrison Keillor's The Book of Guys...
